Coffeehouse of the Month: George House Coffee & Tea Company

Coffeehouses! I’m sure you know my love for them by now. Previously I’ve described what I look for in a coffeehouse: plenty of electrical outlets, has a lot of traffic, great Wi-Fi, contains great views and makes great coffee and other beverages. Starting this month, each month, I will highlight a local, non-chain coffee house that I’ve spent time in.

When traveling or on the move I will sometimes research one to go to in a given town, other times I’ll just stumble upon one which is more fun. This months coffee house is George House Coffee and Tea in Findlay, Ohio.

George House Coffee and Tea Company is locally owned and sits on Main St. just north of downtown. It’s also right across the street from the University of Findlay, one of the top equine (horse) schools in the United States. Thus the coffeehouse gets plenty of traffic from students and local residents. George House has been open since 1993.

It has the old school feel of a library/bookstore. No music plays in the background leading to a quiet atmosphere, when not many people are around to get work done or hang out.  You can pick up any used (some antiquated) book off the shelves to read and buy if you choose. I usually find something to flip through each time I’m there.

They have countless specialty coffees, tea, espresso and iced drinks as well as shakes, sandwiches and other snacks. My favorite drinks are the hot Butter Crunch and Monkey Tail coffees. All the drinks are reasonably priced. Checkout their menu.

George House definitely thinks Green by carrying a wide variety of green and natural products, by recycling everything they can and by encouraging customers to use their own mugs and recycling what they use there. They also carry every flavor of Torani syrup you can think of as well as mugs, shirts and wide range of really affordable spices. My pantry at home can attest to that. I recommend getting the cinnamon sticks and minced garlic.

Lot’s of people make the drive up and down I-75 between Michigan and the southern states. George House is the perfect place to take a break and a get jump on the rest of the drive with some caffeine. They open early and close late every day so if your ever in Northwest Ohio I’d definitely recommend making a stop at George House Coffee and Tea Company.
