We Love Coffee. We Love People Even More.

The Well Coffeehouse

We are turning coffee into water. We are a coffeehouse with a bold vision to make a difference in both our local and global communities. As a missional coffeehouse focused on sustainable solutions to poverty, we turn profits into hope. We do this by creating a product you love, serving you with a smile, and giving our profits to people in need. We love coffee. We love people even more.

How we started

We are driven by our purpose to love coffee and love people even more. Our journey began in Nashville in 2012 to build community locally at our coffeehouses and to make an impact globally with our profits by building water wells, prioritizing safe water needs in the countries from which we source the world’s best coffee. Since then, thousands like you have been a part of our community in our stores and thousands now have access to safe water across the globe. So, let us serve you a cup of your favorite coffee, as together we help to serve the world.

The Well is dedicated to roasting and serving great coffee. Our mission starts with high-quality single-origin coffee, sourced and grown responsibly from farmers, ensuring a living wage to those who give us their best. Many of the coffee growing communities also struggle with access to safe water.

We love full circle by giving them our best, partnering with locally-based organizations to bring clean water to these communities that will sustain their health and future well-being. The quality of our coffee brings you in. Our mission is what keeps you coming back for more. We take the time to make sure our premium coffee is roasted fresh, bringing out the best out of what each bean has to offer and giving you, our customers, something special to enjoy – whether you grab a cup on the way to work or stop by to experience a unique pour-over offering. Our commitment speaks for itself in every sip.
