A Tribute to Nostalgia and Good Times Past
Verena Street Coffee is named after the quiet neighborhood nestled in the Mississippi River valleys of Dubuque, Iowa where we grew up. Five houses lined this street and our extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents were our only neighbors.
In the early 2000s, Verena Street was removed for highway expansion. Erased by the progress of modern development, “Verena Street” survives only in our memories. Today, countless cars pass over the spot where we once played on the swing set our grandfather built.
Today, Verena Street lives on as the namesake of our craft roasted coffee. Although we can no longer walk down Verena Street, it is a place we can once again call home.

How We're Different
Many coffee consumers are frustrated, tired, bored or uninspired with their current coffee of choice. We source high quality beans, roast them to an optimal roast level and artfully blend them to create a unique flavor profile that is better than the sum of its parts. You will find our lightest roasts are not too light, sour or acidic tasting while our darkest roasts are not too dark, burnt, bitter or smoky tasting and our coffee is always freshly roasted. This will leave you feeling satisfied, accomplished, excited and ready to take on the day with Verena Street Coffee.
