Bartender Turned Beantender

The Local Grind Coffee House, Murrell’s Inlet, South Carolina

Jessie Walls was a bartender for twelve years. She was “over the bar scene” yet she loved the mixology aspect as well as contact with the customers. It wasn’t a very big stretch for her to determine a coffee shop would give her both. Jessie purchases her beans from Charleston Roasters, a small-batch local roaster. Most of their beans are organic unless you get into some of their blends. They also sell loose leaf teas.image7

The Local Grind offers a simple sandwich menu along with in-house baked goods. (I had the carrot cake which was divine!) local artists are featured as well as Art and Music Nights. Located in an original 1940’s Murrell’s Inlet cottage, you can sit in the garden room complete with live fig ivy walls. Jessie hopes you will step away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and relax for a while, feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Family With 8 Children Run The Roasted Bean

Family With 8 Children Run The Roasted Bean

The Roasted Bean, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

In a family of 8 children, there is always someone handy to assist owner TJ Weeden in her darling little coffee shop. Originally from Syracuse, NY, TJ and her husband began roasting their own coffee beans for personal co sumptuous after their daughter sent a gift of fresh roasted beans from Vermont. A passion was soon born and they decided to share all the good things of fresh roasted beans. They new they wanted to be located in a place with a lot of foot traffic and stumbled upon the perfect location in the SOHO Shops of The Market Common in Myrtle Beach.

image5Baked goods come from locally owned and operated Benjamin’s Bakery. A variety of coffee and non-coffee drinks are available as well as a breakfast and lunch menu.

TJ hopes you come away from her shop feeling like family after having a really good cup of coffee.
