Uncommon Coffee Roasters is a small batch specialty coffee roaster in Saugatuck, Michigan that was founded by Guy Darienzo and Stephen Keye as a café by the name of Uncommon Grounds.

The wonderful aroma of freshly roasted coffee was the talk of the town as Guy & Stephen began roasting their own coffee out of the cafe on Hoffman Street. The cafe became the hub of their new wholesale roasting business, supplying coffee to many of the local restaurants and bed & breakfasts.

2010

Due to popular demand the roasting side of the company was moved to it’s current location in Douglas, Michigan. Over the course of the next 10 years business grew to what it is now, servicing more than 200 small business and large corporations throughout the midwest.

2021

After 27 amazing years in the coffee business Guy & Stephen are enjoying their retirement! New owners Bruno Nobre and Mauricio DaSilva are excited to continue the legacy that Guy & Stephen built with Uncommon Coffee Roasters.

Working closely with coffee producers to better understand their products, sourcing green coffee globally and traveling to the origin whenever possible continues to be a top priority as Bruno comes from a family of coffee farmers in Brazil. UCR continues to take pride celebrating diversity, giving back and sustainability and strives to work with companies who share similar values. Their goal is to provide a variety of delicious and unique coffees and coffee products to as many people as they can while creating and maintaining sustainable partnerships with customers, coffee producers and everyone in between.
