Memphis Moms Blog Guide to local coffee shops

Ugly Mug Coffee

4610 Poplar Avenue, Memphis, TN 38117

Truth: you can’t call yourself Ugly and then behave that way. Too obvious. So we try to do some good in the world. We only roast coffee that’s traded and grown in a way that benefits the growers and the environment.

You may hear the phrase “roasted with integrity” around here. And you may not. It’s not something we really say that much. It’s just something we do.

And maybe you’re thinking there’s already plenty of other “pretty” coffee companies who talk that kind of blah-blah-blah. Here’s the difference: walking the blah-blah-blah.
