About Cameron’s

Our Morning manifesto for choosing cheer

Morning, friend. When the sun is up, your favorite mug is out. Ready and waiting. These specialty grade beans are roasted with a small town heart and responsibly sourced for your super big joy.

Good things come to those who wake, so resolve to keep your mug half full today!


In 1978, Janie and Jim Cameron had trouble finding good coffee beans anywhere within 100 miles. Jim made it his mission to bring specialty grade coffee to their local grocery stores so that everyone could enjoy exceptional coffee at home.

Bill Kirkpatrick decided to acquire Cameron’s Coffee in 1993 after a little soul-searching. With a vision for bringing superior coffee to larger, coffee-savvy audiences, he expanded the local Cameron’s coffee roasterie into a state-of-the-art roasterie, still in use today. Today the Cameron’s facility in Shakopee, MN is still crafting cheer with small-town heart.
