From a young age I had a distinct love for coffee, as well as what seemed like a gift to distinguish between tasting notes of single origin coffees. I knew that one day I would be able to use that gift to do what I loved. After several years of observing the corruption in corporate America I set my mind on owning and operating a business that would strive for originality and inclusion. What better way to bring people of all tastes and beliefs together than a fresh roasted cup of coffee?
After smoking my family out of our home in Goodrich with each new roast, we quickly realized the newly formed, Shadrach Meshach and ABeanToGo would need a home of its own. A few years, piles of paperwork, several moves, and many beans later we found our roast house only a few minutes from where we first began. This location has served as our roast house for the past 14 years.
Our roasthouse provided us the space and ability to offer wholesale coffee to grocery stores and restaurants, and eventually, after so many people knocking on our door and asking for a cup; we opened up our doors for retail. After roasting and selling hundreds of thousands of beans we opened up our second location in beautiful downtown Lake Orion, MI where we do live music, private dinner parties, and provide a friendly space for college students and families alike.
It is our hope to truly engage with the communities we have been blessed to be a part of, and to offer our product and space to those who need it. With your help, we will continue in striving to be who we are, not a carbon copy of large chains and corporations, not a facade with a fancy motto and a secret recipe, but a business with integrity, with an atmosphere for all to enjoy, and a product for everyone to love.

Our namesake comes from Daniel 3, in the Bible. It is a story of courage and bravery, patience and perseverance, strength and peace in the face of danger, and above all, faith. The faith of three men who stood in defiance of the norm and made a decision to do what they believed was right. Their bold choice led them out of the fire, quite literally, without a scratch.
