Mies van der Roast


More than 100 members of the IIT community turned out for a coffee tasting last month at Global Grounds to select a custom blend for the campus coffee shop.

The winner was Mies van der Roast, a blend of a deep, creamy coffee from Southeast Asia and a bright and nutty coffee from South America. Together, these coffees create a savory and slightly sweet combination. Mies van der Roast will be served daily at Global Grounds.

Provided by Crop to Cup Coffee Company, the coffee is 100% Arabica, fair trade, and roasted right here in Chicago.

Crop to Cup sponsors IPRO 333: Building Communities through Coffee as part IIT’s innovative Interprofessional Projects Program (IPRO), which groups students from varied disciplines and tasks them with solving real-world problems.

The IPRO 333 team’s challenge is to design and build a coffee storage facility for family farmers in Uganda. IIT Dining Services is partnering with the team and Crop to Cup to serve their coffee at Global Grounds. Sales of Mies van der Roast will help the students raise money to fund a trip to Uganda.
