We are happy to be serving Germack Coffee on Sunday mornings and at most of our gatherings at St. John’s.  The Germack Family began roasting in Detroit’s Eastern Market in 1924.  Germack Coffee beans are responsibly selected from the finest growers around the world.  The raw beans are delivered to their roasting facility in historic Eastern Market, where they are blended and roasted locally in small batches.  We love good coffee, and we appreciate local businesses that serve and support our neighborhood.
