WELCOME TO BETWEEN FRIENDS!

We are an author-themed coffeeshop located in the heart of Houston County, Georgia featuring one-of-a-kind specialty coffee beverages. All of our coffee is locally roasted, ground fresh, and sourced through direct trade. We also offer a full menu of specialty milkshakes, steamers, and teas for those who don’t fancy coffee and want the full cafe experience. Our homemade baked goods are made fresh daily and served alongside a full breakfast and lunch meal menu.

Direct Trade Beans, Locally Roasted

We believe in the importance of each and every individual, from the person planting the coffee plant to the person being handed a cup of coffee. With the coming new year, we're making a promise to be more mindful of our impact on the environment and the economy both here at home and where we source our products.


Direct trade coffee is sourced straight from the growers, cutting out both the traditional middleman importers and exporters and also the organizations that control pricey certifications such as Fair Trade and USDA Organic, for example. Direct trade builds mutually beneficial and respectful relationships with individual producers in the coffee-producing countries. Not only do Direct trade roasters have more control over the quality of the coffee, but they also help control the economic benefit, social influence, and environmental health of the coffee-growing regions. Like Fair Trade, Direct Trade sets a fair minimum price per pound, but it also establishes a higher-quality bean standard. Unlike the Fair Trade certification, Direct Trade does not require growers to be part of a cooperative, a requirement that hinders some independent-minded, successful growers.

Author Themed Menu

As avid readers, we wanted to share our love of books with the community. Discovering an author who writes how you think is like finding a best friend and we are grateful for the opportunity to share some of our closest friends with you in the form of a replenishing drink. Hemingway, Pablo, Tolkien, Maya Angelou, or Jane Austen: we hope that each drink you order by name either reconnects you with a dear friend or introduces you to a new one.
