Providing Holy Grounds for All People of Good Will

Good Coffee : Good News

At St. James Coffee, we believe that quality products inspire quality conversation; that something as simple as a cup of coffee can be one of the best reminders of the good, the true, and the beautiful.Using only quality, fair-trade, organic beans, and guided by our rich Tradition, we offer a unique nonprofit venue for building community, discovering truth, and serving alongside like-minded organizations. Everyone is welcome. Come as you are. If you have any questions, or just want to talk, our staff and volunteers are ready and willing to listen.

Our mission is to provide a welcoming space for non-Catholics and non-practicing Catholics to come to know Christ and His Church, and to provide a forum for Catholics to find fellowship and catechesis.

About Our Coffee

St. James Coffee proudly brews European Roasterie coffee from Le Center, Minn.

Since the humble beginning of the European Roasterie on Timothy Tulloch's farm in New Prague, Minn., ERI has grown to over 30 employees in a 50,000 square foot facility that currently produces 5 million pounds of fresh roasted, top grade coffee every year. Small tonnage in the big coffee game, but big weight in the quality coffee markets.

Part of ERI's rapid growth can be attributed to Timothy's wide understanding of coffee and where to purchase. He brings a cornucopia of coffee each year to the Roasterie including exotic Organics and lesser known but more flavorful Varietals. All of which is of great interest to coffeehouses who would like to be distinctive from larger franchised competition who cannot provide the same quality coffee at Full City Roast.

We proudly offer our own certified Organic, Fair Trade, Bird Friendly and Environmentally Friendly coffees to you. All of our coffees are hand-selected, micro-roasted European-style, and shipped-fresh daily.

About Our Tea

St. James Coffee is blessed by partnerships with like-minded nonprofits, like Compassion Tea, a Christian company dedicated to not only healing the physical, but presenting the life-saving Gospel to people who have never heard it before. 100% of the proceeds go to supporting medical clinics in South Africa, Uganda, Tanzania, and Zambia by providing much needed medical supplies, and funding for education and staffing.
