Vital Grind’s Mission

Owned and operated by Registered Nurses, our vision is to offer the highest quality grown beans for the best fresh-roasted cup of coffee. We want our name to be synonymous with Healthcare and premium coffee.

Vital Grind Coffee is passionate about bringing the culture of Healthcare to your cup with our own unique fun twist. Please browse our selections to see all the fun and creative names we have given our premium beans.

The Beginning

Vital Grind Coffee began as a phenomenal idea. We needed a coffee representing the medical field and that is when my idea of Vital Grind Coffee Company was created to share premium coffee while honoring Healthcare and First Responders.

About US

 My wife and I both are RNs. I started my career as a Firefighter/EMT and worked my way up to Paramedic/Engineer. While I loved my time in the Fire Department, I decided to go back to school and after 3 years of night school and a full time ER Tech I accomplished my goal and graduated as a Registered Nurse. My wife started her caregiving skills with animals and transitioned from the service industry to nursing school to a superb ICU nurse.

Why Coffee

Most of us today can't get by without at least one cup of coffee in the morning.  For myself, primarily working in Emergency Departments over the years there have been many long shifts and stressful nights, but one constant has always been there when I needed that extra push... COFFEE!

We have seen the ups and downs in healthcare and for the men and women who put in 12 to 14-hour days taking care of sick, injured, or mental patients, I wanted to dedicate a brand of coffee just for these community heroes.  I wanted something that says, "Thank you" for the hard work you do, "Thank you" for taking excellent care of my family member, and "Thank you" for being there when you are needed. 

This recognition may only be a small token of appreciation for our Healthcare colleagues, but it carries heartfelt gratitude to the folks who chose this path to care for others - sometimes before their own family.  These folks, our heroes, include our EMS, Fire and Police, and particularly Doctors, Nurses, PAs, NPs, LAB, Pharmacy, EVS, MAs, Registration, Respiratory, Radiology, Administration, Security, Grounds Keepers, Education, PT/OT, and many more.
