About Us


Amy and I met here in Ripon while I was an Army Officer, teaching ROTC at Ripon College, and she was on staff at Ripon Community Church. We fell in love with the community and the people of Ripon, and starting planning our eventual return almost as soon as my Army career took us away from here in 2009. The right doors opened and the opportunity to chase a longtime dream of owning a coffeehouse came to fruition as we purchased Mugs Coffeehouse. We reopened Mugs on January 5th, 2015. I am passionate about coffee…I love it and I love all that comes with it. Partner that with a love for this community and a desire to impact the community with a friendly, open, and inviting place for all to come and meet a friend for coffee, have a business meeting, cozy up by the fireplace with a latte and a book…whatever. We look to invite the folks from Ripon and surrounding area in with special events and live music on a regular basis. So, come check us out…we’d love to meet you!
