We are a literary themed coffeehouse located in the heart of middle Georgia featuring one-of-a-kind specialty beverages. All of our coffee is locally roasted, freshly ground, and sourced through direct trade. Besides all things coffee, we offer specialty milkshakes, steamers, teas, lemonades, hot chocolates, etc! Our baked goods are made fresh daily and served alongside a full breakfast and lunch menu.

Direct Trade Beans, Locally Roasted

We at Between Friends 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 inside our store. In this new decade we are making a promise to be more mindful of our impact on the environment and the economy both here at home and in the countries where we source our products from.

Direct trade coffee is sourced straight from the farmers, cutting out traditional middleman importers, exporters, and organizations that control pricing. Direct trade builds mutually beneficial and respectful relationships between the farmers and the roasters. Not only do direct trade roasters have more control over the quality of the coffee bean, they also positively affect the economic, social, and environmental health of the coffee growing regions. Like Fair Trade, Direct Trade sets a fair minimum price per pound, while also establishing a higher standard of bean quality. In an effort to maximize the profit for the farms themselves, direct trade does not require growers to pay to be part of a cooperative.

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, Hughes, 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.
