It's A Grind

Founded in 1994 in Long Beach, California, It’s A Grind’s mission is to provide high-quality signature coffee, espresso beverages and delicious food offerings in a comfortable and locally-focused atmosphere.  It’s A Grind has stores in the USA, Middle East and Asia. Sourcing its coffee from around the globe, It’s A Grind then roasts each batch in Southern California, ensuring consistently fresh, smooth and flavorful coffee.

We are not just a coffee house, but a unique community within four walls.

It's A Grind Coffee Houses are relaxed, 'come as you are' coffee houses with comfortable seating, relaxing music and high-quality service. In-line or stand-alone operations ranging from 900ft2 -1400ft2.
