Locally Owned and Operated by McCabe and Marli Callahan
McCabe started the first Mugs in 2002 when he was finishing his last semester at Colorado State University. In the years to follow he expanded the business to have several more shops and a bar. In 2007 he made the decision to downsize and just focus on the downtown location on Olive & College. In 2010 Marli & McCabe married and opened the shop across from the Oval on Laurel. We now have two locations and are proud to be part of the Fort Collins and Colorado State communities.
Community Through Coffee
At Mugs, we believe that coffee is our vehicle to serve and grow our community. We have thrived to create a culture in our community that encourages social interaction and the exchange of social capital. We feel coffee shops may be one of the last remaining daytime, open forum, social hubs in most communities. We welcome and encourage any and all people to our business.
Local Products and Sustainable Practices
We provide over 85% Fair Trade, Organic, Homegrown, or Local products and give in kind donations to dozens of local organizations every month. We are constantly trying to keep our waste to a minimum by updating and evolving our recycling, trash and composting programs. We are powered by the wind, and grow some of our own ingredients. We also order as many products as possible from LoCo Foods, a local food distributor.
