They also have an online store where you can purchase mugs, shirts, coffeemakers, and coffee, or you can sign up for their weekly and monthly coffee subscriptions.
The Coffee Beans Are Sourced From All Over The World
Seven Virtues is a unique coffee roaster in that they only offer single origin coffees rather than blends.

They Pride Themselves In Using Healthy Ingredients

Their North Tabor menu is more extensive than The Zipper and Hawthorne locations with the addition of delicious, healthy smoothies, sandwiches, and toasts.
