Our Story

Our story is unfolding daily, and we've been sharing it through Five & Hoek since 2013, when we joined the world of third wave coffee with our friend Erich. We're a family owned and operated small business and we're raising our two cute kids in a coffee shop.

For the past decade we have been growing in our coffee knowledge, community experience, and growing as a family too! Our kiddos love visiting the coffee shop often and if you ask them, they'll tell you all we do is make delicious coffee & muffins. We love being able to live out our dream day in and day out in Wheaton, IL & Knoxville, TN.

What We Do

We roast coffee that is ethically sourced, carefully tested and curated by our QC team, and served with love. We do this by bringing in multiple coffee samples, often organic, at a time, tasting through them with our QC team before selecting which coffees you will enjoy most! 

We partner with importers & farmers directly who care most about quality coffee, organic coffee, and caring for the farmers involved in growing & processing the coffee, and assuring that the coffee is sourced responsibly.

We roast our coffee to highlight where the coffee came from (Terroir), aiming ultimately for sweetness and balance, not to highlight roasting characteristics like smoke, char, or burnt flavors. Please reach out at info@fiveandhoek.com if you have any questions about our current coffee offerings.

Why We Do it

Since we started this company in 2010 we have always been about 3 things: Coffee, relationships, and community. We have always focused on doing our best to bring people into the fold of Five & Hoek who love coffee, and love people. 

We exist to partner with producers growing amazing coffee, and sharing that beautiful product with you! If we weren't able to share what we love with you, then we would not be doing this! We are excited to have you alongside us in this journey of coffee, relationships, and community.
