We Connect Makers, Growers & Community

To Our Customers—


As of January 1, 2015, we will begin paying our employees not just a living but a livable wage. To accomplish this increase in hourly pay rates we are increasing prices and eliminating the practice of tipping at the café. We believe that by creating a sustainable pricing model to support the quality of our products and staff we offer a positive (and delicious!) experience in a way that gratuity-driven service simply cannot.

As the owners, we are an integral part of Kopplin's, but so too are our talented employees. Sharing the work of the café deepens our commitment to them, which is to create a secure and fulfilling role for those who choose to stay with us. In doing so, we make our coffee house a better place for every person who sets foot inside. As we seek to create this alternative to standard 'service industry' chains, we choose to provide fair compensation (exceeding the "living wage" of $9.69 in Ramsey County). This validates the good work of our employees and creates a more stable and equitable pay environment for these people who bring beauty into our lives with the creation of their hands.

In 2006, Kopplin's Coffee opened with a vision based on a philosophy of good taste and real community. Over time the principles of the shop have evolved and strengthened to form the backbone of the café that exists today. We're here to provide a location, a unique space, standing opposed to the prevailing narrative that reduces people to consumers. We imagine a community of people in collaboration, with customers and staff learning from each other. We are excited to announce this latest step Kopplin's is taking toward making our vision more concrete.

We call Kopplin's our "public house," a focal point of community. We welcome you to linger over a cup and conversation with us.

Andrew & Amanda Kopplin, Owners

I am inspired by the simple moments in life. Bright colors are truly my friends! It is what makes me feel alive and energized. Painting on wood feels natural. I enjoy collecting, cutting, sanding and adding color to it. The texture, smell, and weight are always unpredictable. Allowing the imperfections of the wood to speak to the viewer adds a sense of where the creative process originated, and might even be a gentle reminder to be content with the imperfections of life.
