SchoolGrounds Coffee House and David A Morrow Gallery PLEASE NOTE: SCHOOLGROUNDS IS CLOSED INDEFINITELY DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS. WE WILL RETURN TO BUSINESS SOON! Nope, we didn’t invent the coffee house.
(169)

What we did do is invent an experience for those looking for just a little more. Those who’d like to find the fuel and inspiration to pursue their passions, both personal and professional. The ingredients are simple, but robust. We started with an idea: a vintage school house location nestled right off I-94, just east of Madison in Cottage Grove, WI. Perfect, right? And here’s the best part: we st

irred it into a fine blend of coffee, food, art, music and conversation, with a dollop of outstanding service, giving it a compelling uniqueness you simply won’t find anywhere else. Our coffee is served with the pride of knowing we offer consistently excellent quality and flavor through expert blending and roasting beyond anything outside of Seattle. Our art gallery offerings are local and regional. And the stimulating conversation is up to you, but we’re always happy to join in. We invite you to make it your personal place of empowerment, revitalization, productivity and excitement about life - as a solo escape, or your gathering place with friends and colleagues. Welcome to SchoolGrounds Coffee House - Stop for coffee. Stay inspired.

Hi Folks,

The entire SchoolGrounds Coffee House team wants to express our heartfelt gratitude for the kindness, encouragement and grace you’ve extended to us over these too many months apart. Our desire to serve you and to be a place of inspiration, restoration, and True Community has never flagged. About fifty years ago, my grandfather said something to me that I failed to fully understand until just a few years back. He was philosophizing while we cut firewood together, and I commented that it seemed like he never tired. Instead, he seemed to get stronger the longer and harder he worked. He looked at me side-eyed, and said with a grin, "Davey-boy, a plow horse with no plow to pull will simply wither away.” I wish I could tell him now that I understand.

Over the years we've made thousands of friends who have come through the doors at the old Gaston School building, the home of SchoolGrounds Coffee House. One of the original hand-quarried slates from 1911 still hangs on our wall. Imagine the chalk it has seen: diagrams, assignments, and “I will not [something]” written a hundred times. For the past 8 or 9 years the words we placed on that slate haven't changed – an expression of one of our core values.

"The main things are the plain things, and the plain things are the main things"

To us, the “main things” and the “plain things” all tend to revolve around our fundamental motivation: True Community.

And in the spirit of True Community, let’s talk about main and plain things as we consider the future of SchoolGrounds Coffee House (and the role you’ll play in that future). As most of you know, we decided to mothball our operation early last summer as the developing pandemic began to change lives dramatically. We knew we could not remain solvent in the short term with the restrictions in place. We chose a longer strategy, hoping to emerge from hibernation at an appropriate time. Well, it feels like that time might finally be approaching. We’ve been discussing how it might happen, and how to address new and remaining risks.



Ah, risks. Everything about life involves risk, right? Looking at the road before us, we still see an uncomfortably large number of them. Don’t get us wrong, we’re optimists, and we understand that risk can be a good thing – when you have a way to manage it. Right now, there are some risks over which we have no control; the levers are in the hands of others (including you). Our top-of-mind issue: how durable is the reopening of society likely to be? Are enough people going to step up and do the things that need to be done to keep everyone safe?

Coming back out of hibernation is a big and costly effort. It’s going to take time and resources to wake up our old schoolhouse, and do so sustainably. We need to be confident that our invested time and treasure will be matched by the efforts of our community of friends... in everything from wise health decisions to steady commerce.

So, now, down to the “main” and “plain” things. Thank you, sincerely, to the folks who have taken advantage of our online coffee subscription. You’ve helped us keep some cash flowing through purchase of our coffee – in full, one-pound bags! People are pleasantly surprised when they receive 16-ounce packages, not the twelve ounces that seems to have become “a pound.” We sell a full pound for a great price – we’re in an old school house, and Mr. Handwerker, who taught my business partner math, would be roundly disappointed to hear that we thought 12/16 = 16/16.


Over the last several months, we’ve been asked countless times about our needs and our plans, and how folks can help. How can you most effectively help SchoolGrounds? Go to our Facebook Shopify store (schoolgrounds-coffee-house.myshopify.com) and enroll in a personal coffee subscription. Here’s the win/win:

We need reliable revenue in order to come back online. We want you to have a steady supply of our exquisite Morning Bell roasted coffee blends for your own home.

Commit to a one-year subscription for 2 pounds of roasted beans per month. That’s under two dollars a day...less than the retail cost of a 12 ounce brewed coffee. The subscriptions we offer are ongoing and automatically renew, and you can gift them to others too! You can of course cancel at any time, but please don't! Staying subscribed for two years would be even more helpful. And then, tell every coffee lover you know about our Morning Bell roasts, and convince them to subscribe too. They’ll thank you for it once they experience what you already love about our coffee. If you subscribe and spread the word, you are the key ingredient of SchoolGrounds’ future; you declare yourself part of our True Community.

schoolgrounds-coffee-house.myshopify.com



We have ambitious goals. Getting a thousand subscriptions sets us firmly on the path to re-emergence. Twelve hundred boosts our confidence considerably. Fifteen hundred annual subscriptions, we have every reason to think that we can begin to serve you again in all the ways we have in the past, with exciting new opportunities opening up as well! While these numbers sound big, they’re modest in the universe of social media. Again, get your networks involved. Partner with us on this and let’s once again experience True Community at SchoolGrounds Coffee House!

The SchoolGrounds Coffee House Team is stepping into the traces of the plow. Join us – many hands make light work. A big challenge? Yep, it sure is. Doable? You’d better believe it!

And as always, Peace.

Hi Folks! The Ol' Roaster has been getting a workout over the last couple months to say the least! Thanks to all who have been using our Shopify store to purchase and enjoy our time-tested Morning Bell line of premium roasted coffee.

Over the past few weeks we have received countless requests for a SUBSCRIPTION COFFEE SERVICE so that folks can receive regular shipments of fresh-roasted coffee beans to their door step.

We listened and responded! Now you can join our new Subscription Service Community at SchoolGrounds. Need some fresh coffee each week? No problem. Every other week? Every third or fourth week? Also not a problem. Just dial-in on your consumption rates and match that to the frequency of your personal subscription. At your chosen interval, you'll get an email to confirm you are ready for a shipment. We'll do the rest of the operations and see that completely fresh-roasted beans show up at your place!

Be sure to let us know if you need whole bean or ground. If you know others who could use such a service as a gift, let us know and we can set it up and ship anywhere! Available in Dark Roast, Light Roast and Decaf.

Here's the link: schoolgrounds-coffee-house.myshopify.com

Always shipped in resealable full, one-pound bags because 'a pound is a pound'.

Good Morning Folks!
How would you like a chance to WIN FREE MORNING BELL BLEND COFFEE BEANS? Well, here's your chance!

Today we begin The SchoolGrounds Community Caption Contest! So here's the photo for WEEK 1!

At the beginning of each week we will post a photograph and you will provided the caption...easy as pie. Each week's winner will receive a FREE FULL POUND of our Signature Morning Bell Blend premium, roasted coffee beans.

CONTEST RULES:
1. Write a caption no longer than 257,804.6 words in length. Keep in mind for perspective that the entire Gettysburg Address was only 272 words.

2. Not really a rule...but bear in mind this Contest is intended for entertainment, encouragement and enjoyment during these winter months. It will take our minds off the possibility of being overtaken by glaciers and stampedes of mammoths.

3. Because of #2, keep it uplifting, non-political, non-mean, and generally smile-inducing. If what you're about to write would cause my grandmother to grab you by the ear and introduce you to the delicious flavors of a bar of soap...just clamp it down and don't do it. I'm serious...my grandma is long-passed but she might make an exception if you transgress...don't say I didn't warn you.

4. Submit your CAPTION ENTRY by midnight each Wednesday. We will announce that week's WINNER at the end of the week. Then rinse and repeat all winter long.

5. Occasionally we will offer the opportunity to win DOUBLE the normal prize. In those cases we will insist you use a certain word in your caption. Some examples might be: horse, yarn, ball, Frankenstein, acorn, lemon, platypus. Sometimes we may even select TWO words to work into your caption just to mess with you a bit.

6. Submit only one entry per week. Don't try to create fake identities to submit more entries...we already know that Senlow Fenwicke is not your real name.

7. Submit all entries to: [email protected]

WINNER SELECTION

1. Let's be clear. Winner Selection is mostly subjective and arbitrary. We have cast any systematic process to the wind. If we read your entry and a small chuckle emerges from the back of our throats, well, you're likely in the running. If we snort, you're certainly in the finals. A full-on, uncontrolled belly-laugh will take the prize every time. Conversely, if we read your entry and its kinda mean...well, just remember the thing about my grandma.

2. If you are the Winner, we will post your caption with the original photograph for all the world (or a sub-set of the world at least) to see and enjoy. You might become famous and wealthy as a result but its actually highly unlikely. The winning photo with caption are the sole property of everyone-in-the-whole-wide-world so get those wispy dreams of royalties out of your mind.

DISCLOSURE: Any resemblance of this Contest to the one they run with comics in The New Yorker Magazine is absolutely and totally coincidental we think. No animals were harmed as we planned this Contest, even the ones that might eat you if given the chance.

GOOD LUCK! Remember, its all about True Community! Lets make sure we are all smiling and laughing together even if those mammoths get loose and the glaciers pick up speed!

Big Announcement Today!

Hi Folks! Take a look back at our last official post where we let
everyone know we were going into Mothball Mode for a bit. It was a
painful decision, but necessary to ensure our long-term survival and
commitment to our lovely Community! The outpouring of well-wishers was
humbling and overwhelming...we thank you again for that kindness. The
SchoolGrounds Team set a 90-day timeline for ourselves to come up with a
plan. Today is Day 90.

The landscape has changed and the overall game has changed for all of
us. So, the Team dedicated itself over the last 89 days to figuring
out a way to continue to serve our Community in keeping with the premium
experience we've always provided. When games change or evolve, elements
of that game change with it...new helmets, shoes, colors, rules...you
get the idea. So, we've listened very carefully to all of you who have
continued to support us in spirit...now we have a plan. The heart of
the plan is a phased approach to coming fully back on line...it reflects
the primary hopes and desires of all of you who have stood by us and
continued to wish us well!

Phase 1 The SchoolGrounds Coffee Store

Our lead roaster, Ben, has used these past 89 days to great advantage.
He has reinforced his premium, green coffee supply chain and has spent
countless hours fine-tuning his roast recipes. He's taken it to a
whole new level of execution...these flavor profiles are off-the-charts
in terms of overall satisfaction and experience. STARTING TOMORROW our
new FACEBOOK STORE opens and you'll be able to once-again taste these
wonderful flavors. We will offer our classic and delicious Morning
Bell Line of roasts...our light, our dark and our decaf. You'll be
able to order directly from the Store and suddenly these fresh-roasted
delights will show up at your door-step! We can ship any where you
like. Oh, you'll like this too...no small 12-ounce packages that often
get sold as 'a pound of coffee'. We did some research and and learned
that a pound is indeed 16 ounces! So, TRUE ONE-POUND BAGS ONLY!
OK...that's Phase 1. Its a good start to get some delicious premium
coffee across your taste buds while we develop the next phase. You can
have it as whole bean or ground; just let us know. The
ultra-super-secret SchoolGrounds brewing instructions are on the back of
the bag. Promise not to tell anyone.

Phase 2 The SchoolGrounds Express Drive-Through

Yep...its actually true. We lost count of how many of our friends have
continued to request this feature. As always, we listen carefully
about how we can best serve our Community so here we go. In the very
near future, you're going to see a literal scale-model of the Old Gaston
Schoolhouse sitting in the middle of our parking lot. You'll be able to
pull up to a window and place your order with our ever-friendly
SchoolGrounds baristas then swing around a nice big oval and pick your
order up on the other side...then zip right back on your way to your
destination. All of our old favorite drinks and a few more new ones
will be available along with a range of pastries from sweet to savory.
Remember Dave's hand-crafted soups? Now you'll be able to cruise in
for a quick soup and roll and a favorite drink and never need to leave
your vehicle. The weather is starting to cool off a bit and no doubt
we're going to get a pile of snow in the next few months so the timing
couldn't be better.

Phase 3 The Main Campus

When we all finally get to come back inside buildings...and that's still
a bit fuzzy...you're going to see some astounding changes in and around
the Old School House. Most, if not all, of these changes will be in
direct response to your hopes and wishes. OK...some teaser words:
Crepes, Waffles, Scones, Live Music, Fish Boils, SteveTalks, Crepes,
Craft, home made root beer, ice cream, dancing ponies...oh, and did we
mention Crepes? That thing about the dancing ponies...not true; we got
taken away in the moment. Stay tuned. We're hard at work and having
fun as we hope to delight you once again with the experience that only
SchoolGrounds Coffee House can provide.

Onward and Peace...

Hi Folks:
SchoolGrounds Coffee House has been a place to experience True Community for many years now. We intend that this will be the case for many, many years to come. We've hit a few bumps in the road along the way, but its been a privilege to move past these bumps with you!

The bump is a bit larger this time and we look around our region with sadness as many of our fellow local coffee shops are simply going away. We expect to be steaming full-ahead in the hopefully-not-so-distant future. For now, we need to pull the old steamship into the harbor for a bit so that we can make it even more fit when the seas calm.

In the end, current operational restrictions simply do not foster viability. We don't intend to go away which is why we must mothball for a short time. Our commitment to our dedicated team and our beautiful community is such that we choose to engage a strategy that ensures our survival and presence.

We'll keep you well-informed along the way as we pull the shades for a bit and give the Old SchoolHouse a new shine as we prepare to see you all again. Hmmmmm...you just might come through the doors in the near future and see some AMAZING new features...just sayin'.

Thank you for your grace and patience as we navigate back towards a thriving place of True Community.

We are grateful and we love you all....Peace...
The SchoolGrounds Team

Happy Saturday Morning from the SchoolGrounds Team!

Lets start the day with an Odd Historical Fact. We unearthed archival documentation recently which strongly suggests that Lewis and Clark most likely did not pass through our fair Village or even stop at SchoolGrounds Coffee House for a SunRise Sandwich or a premium espresso drink. But you can!

Serving at the Old CurbSide Tent from 8:30 till 11:00 this morning...order from the comfort of your car and we'll deliver it to you!

Come on by and Discover what Lewis and Clark did not!

The SchoolGrounds CurbSide Coffee House (its actually a tent so don't get real excited...) is open again this morning from 8:30-11:00. So load up everyone in the vehicle and come on out...even if its a kinda weird vehicle like the one pictured...

Stop by for your favorite signature coffee, espresso or tea drink and pair it up with our delicious hand-crafted pastries for a tasty and easy start to the day!

Hope to see you soon!

Free Natural Carwash with every purchase today!

The Team is suited up an ready to begin serving you Curbside from 8:30-11:00 this morning! Perfect weather for a piping hot espresso, coffee or tea drink! We'll also be serving Grandma's Porridge, Fresh Hand-Crafted Pastries and of course our ever-present SunRise Sandwich...some great options to help you ease into your Sunday Morning.

Its raining so the Drive-Thru Safari animals are tucked away in their dens but we do have some Special Visitors with us today! Hovering just a few hundred feet above the Old Schoolhouse is a Romulan Science Ship. As you drive through the Curbside service, look directly above your vehicle and you will most definitely not see the ship...it has engaged its Cloaking Device. Its there...trust us...so bring your cameras for an exciting non-photographic opportunity at SchoolGrounds!

Its a gorgeous, sunny morning around the 'Grounds! We'll be serving you once again from our drive-up, Curb-Side Coffee Hut this morning from 8:30 - 11:00!

Just pull up to the hut where Ben will take your order and we'll get it out to you in a jiffy!

Serving our full range of coffee, espresso and tea drinks along pastries, porridge and our famous SunRise Sandwich!
..remember, Miss Beth made some fresh organic pup treats so bring along the hound... Just a little complementary nibble so the beasties can have a good start to the day as well!

See you soon.....Peace...

Good Morning Folks:

We'll be serving you from the old Curbside Tent again this morning from 8:30 - 11:00 a.m.!

Just pull up to the tent and Ben will take your order...the Team inside will process it and then we'll run it right out to your vehicle. Miss Beth was up again early making fresh, warm Organic Pup Treats...peanut butter and parsley for fresh puppy breath...so don't forget to bring the hound along for the ride!

We have our full range of delicious coffee, espresso and tea drinks along with our fresh hand-crafted pastry, gramma's Porridge, and our famous SunRise Sandwich! Any or all are a good way to ease into your day!

The 'baboons' will be here again today so bring your cameras in case of a rare sighting of these strange beasts...as you exit the tent area you will enter the SchoolGrounds Weekend Super Cool Free Driving Safari. Enjoy!

See you soon....Peace....

Good Morning Folks!

Here's our new Operating Hours for near future:

Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30 to 11:00 a.m.

Loads of you have told us this is your favorite time to visit us at the Old SchoolGrounds Drive-Up Tent and it shows by the constant stream of vehicles on these mornings! We're having lots of fun on those two mornings when we serve up our complete line of Signature coffee, tea and espresso drinks as well as our full line of hand-crafted pastries, rich and wholesome Porridge and of course our famous and ever-present SunRise Sandwiches!

We'll keep you posted as our operational hours change with changing times! Meanwhile, come on out during these weekend hours where you'll be met by a smiling SchoolGrounds Barista...treats and drinks all from the comfort of your vehicle!

True Community looks a bit different at times...but its still TRUE COMMUNITY!

Hope to see you with family and friends this weekend!

Peace
