Coffee. Comfort. Satisfaction.
ABOUT LEGRAND COFFEE HOUSE
LeGrand Coffee House will be located at 10 Green Street in Eric LeGrand’s hometown of Woodbridge, New Jersey. Once we open our doors, we will be sourcing extraordinary coffees from a local roaster and serve traditional baked goods and food items. We will also prepare traditional coffee beverages to the highest standards, and we will serve those beverages in an inviting space that encourages our customers to socialize and relax.
With that said, we did not want to make you wait to get a taste of what we are brewing at LeGrand Coffee House! We are very pleased to already have a variety of our coffees available now through our online shop. No matter where you are in the United States (sorry, no international orders), you can have our savory and aromatic coffees delivered right to your front door.
SINGLE ORIGIN ROASTS
LeGrand Coffee House products are derived of single origin roasts, which means our coffee is sourced from one single producer, crop or region in one country. Long story short, it ensures that you are getting the highest quality coffee that is possible to be produced.
Many retail stores and coffee shops offer "blends" that are simply a mixture of various beans from different regions and of various flavors. Consistency is an impossibility with this method, and it dramatically reduces the quality of the coffee as well.
ABOUT ERIC LEGRAND
In October 2010, Eric LeGrand sustained a spinal cord injury at his C3 and C4 vertebrae while playing football for Rutgers University. Since that life-altering incident occurred, he has become a worldwide source of inspiration whose message of positivity has influenced a countless number of people throughout the globe. Additionally, Eric has developed an incredible business and professional acumen, becoming an established entrepreneur, motivational speaker, sports analyst, philanthropist and author.
On the charitable side, his philanthropic organization Team LeGrand has raised well over one million dollars for the Reeve Foundation. Additionally, the Rutgers graduate was recognized by Sports Illustrated with its 2011 Best Moment Award, and he was also presented with the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance at the 2012 ESPY Awards. Further, he was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2017, receiving the Warrior Award.
WHY OPEN A SMALL BUSINESS IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC?
Through LeGrand Coffee House, Eric hopes to bring people together and inspire them by providing a “Daily Cup of bELieve” that will remind them to attack their goals each and every day.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
As an African-American man in a wheelchair, Eric knows what it is like to have the odds stacked against you. However, he approaches every single day with a mode of positivity that enables him to accomplish any goal he sets his mind towards achieving. Once he determined that his heart was set on launching his own coffee brand, no disability or pandemic was capable of standing in his way.
We are all going through some extraordinarily difficult times right now, and Eric hopes to remind everyone of how important it is to maintain a positive mindset despite what circumstances you may be facing. The launch of LeGrand Coffee House is so much more than simply opening a coffee shop. It is a reminder that we can accomplish anything if we set our heart, mind and focus on that goal.
