The Coffee

We are proud to serve Stumptown Coffee here at Mellow Johnny’s? Why bring coffee all the way from Portland? First, Stumptown is a precious coffee product loved  around the US amongst coffee culturists. Stumptown trades directly with farmers around the world. They know they farmer, the bean, and the neighborhood. Their attention to detail and quality is second to none. When we approached them about coming to Austin, they jumped at the chance to connect with Austin, Mellow Johnny’s and Juan Pelota.
We will offer a standard lineup of blends every day for the wide tastes of drinkers. We will also offer special single origins and rare blends often.
