One of our favorite things about living in the Cleveland area is the large number of thriving local businesses that call Bradley County home. We will be featuring some of our favorites and hope that you will find these resources helpful. One treasure of Cleveland is BonLife Coffee. BonLife coffee started with the idea that coffee should be a positive experience that can be used to impact the world. BonLife Coffee was started 5 years ago by husband and wife duo Jeremy and Erika Moore. After a missions trip to Thailand, where they tasted some amazing coffee, the Moores realized that the coffee bean farmers would benefit more from a business partnership than from monetary donations. That’s when the idea of beginning a coffee roastery and cafe that would make the world a better place was born. BonLife’s motto “Drink a Better Story” points to this mission and is a reminder to us all to use our gifts, talents, and money to make a positive impact. An Alum of Lee University, Jeremy was familiar with all that the Cleveland area has to offer. Ultimately the duo decided it would be the perfect place to open their business and raise a family.
Since opening, BonLife Coffee has won several awards for their outstanding coffee and roasting abilities. This year, they entered and placed at Coffee Fest in Nashville, Tennessee for Best Espresso and Best Cold Brew. In 2016, BonLife Coffee won 5 awards at the Golden Bean Coffee Roasters Competition: 3 silver and 2 bronze. They will be entering again this year and we cannot wait to see what they bring back!
From the moment you enter, you are greeted by rich wood decor, warm smiles, and the aromas of fresh coffee and tasty treats. It may sound cliche but it really is a place where everybody knows your name. As the chill of fall enters the air, BonLife has plenty keep you warm! Stop in for a Honey Cinnamon Latte or freshly made waffle today. While you are there check out their selection of handmade gifts that give a portion of proceeds back to those who make them!
