Our Story.

With their time exploring Europe, co-founders Mitch Monaco and Calyn Kir felt there was a gap in knowledge and individuality in the coffee industry. After browsing the vast selection of coffee's in an Irish cafe, the duo set out to disturb the coffee industry and give freedom back to the consumer, and allow them to create a coffee special to them. When returning home the two joined forces with Jeron Kir to create My Grind Coffee Co. Inspired by the luxury of coffee, the team "grinds" towards delivering a transformed coffee experience, one cup at a time.

Our Goal.

Billions of people drink coffee every day, but only a small fraction understand the nuanced complexities of good coffee. Frankly, that is because coffee is too complicated for the average sipper, and we want to change that. My Grind Coffee Co aims to deliver quality coffee made for any time, feeling or activity, without confusing coffee terminology. Simply, we strive to provide a cup of coffee that resonates with you and allows you to take on each day with a positive mindset.

We plan to allow coffee lovers to cater to their tastes and customize their own signature blends. Along with personalized coffee, My Grind seeks to introduce supplements and coffee additives to truly take the coffee-drinking experience to the next level.

A note goodbye from team My Grind.

“Grinders, it saddens me to have to write this, however it has been an incredible 3 ½ years at the helm of My Grind Coffee Co. Early on we had no idea what to expect as a first time business owners, yet the support we received over the past few years has been nothing short of amazing. Some of the most fulfilling moments were getting to connect with the community at various events around the county. It was a blessing to meet so many coffee lovers, and have the chance to share memories over a cup of coffee. My Grind was more than just a coffee company to me, it resembled an embodiment of the energy it takes to overcome adversity every day; a reminder that each day is an opportunity to conquer whatever challenge you face. It has been a pleasure working alongside Jeron and Mitch, they both have grown tremendously through this process and have pushed me to grow as a team member and individual. I cannot be more proud of what we created and achieved with My Grind. As of now, I am currently living in Detroit, Michigan, where I work daily as a mechanical engineer. I hope to return to the business space in the future, but for now, thank you, and keep grinding. A special thanks to the team Anna’s Home and Garden, staff and organizers of Run & Roll, Plant Based Baker/Belamund Cafe, All On Board, 519 Culture, Heritage On The Rocks, and Policella Plumbing who have been huge supporters.”

"Grinders, it’s been an honour to be a part of this business venture over the past few years. I joined Calyn and Mitch to launch My Grind with no real expectations of what could come from it. It has been such a pleasure to see what we have been able to do with the business – selling out of coffee on the first day, growing our brand completely organically to meeting so many other amazing local business owners along the way. It has been such a fun and rewarding process that I am proud of. It saddens me to have to close the doors but I know that when one door closes, another one opens. I truly hope we have had a positive impact on others, that’s what makes life fulfilling and I would love to leave you with this – Although My Grind was a coffee company, the whole premise of this business was to showcase to everyone that you can do anything you want in life, if you just grind, step out of your comfort zone, don’t listen to the noise, and focus on the pursuit of your goals and dreams. You are capable of so much more than you think. The precious thing about life is that it doesn’t last forever and it’s important to enjoy every moment we have! As I continue throughout the journey of life I am excited to further develop upon my entrepreneurial skills, seek new business opportunities and evolve every day. I have been grinding on my real estate license over the past 10 months and am happy to announce I will be a new Realtor in the Kingsville area in early 2024. I look forward to helping you in any way. Thank you for all of your support, keep grinding!"

“First and foremost, I want to thank both Calyn and Jeron for being the most incredible partners on this journey building My Grind Coffee. I also want to thank everyone in the community who supported us along the way. Over the last 3 years, I can confidently say I have shaped into the person I have always wanted to become. I met the love of my life, moved into a condo, and grew in my career more than I ever anticipated. In November of 2021, I was grateful for the opportunity to work for Rocket Mortgage, while simultaneously building the business for My Grind.

During this transition, the demands of managing and growing both paths became evident, and my time for both avenues became much harder to manage. Moving forward, I will be stepping into a promotion as a Prime Minister’s Club Mortgage Agent. While I am grateful for this incredible opportunity to move forward in my career, the time and attention required to meet the demands of this role has become very clear to me. As I move into this next stage of life, it is time to say goodbye to My Grind. Again, thank you for everything. Always remember to #KeepGrinding”
