Our Story

When our son turned 16, he got his first job at a local coffee shop. What started with the occasional family trip to visit him at work and grab a coffee quickly turned into a family obsession. Fast forward a year, and our oldest daughter decided to follow in her brother’s footsteps, further deepening our family’s relationship with coffee. As a part of our journey, we started experimenting with different coffee beans, roast types, and brewing methods. Mistakes were definitely made, but lessons were also learned.

Although coffee has definitely become a family affair (our other three children plan to chart the same course as their two older siblings), it’s never been just about the taste. The true enjoyment has been the bonding, learning, and sharing that we’ve done together. This led to the realization that our experience could inspire others. Filtered Grounds was born out of our love for coffee and spending time together as a family. Our desire now is to share what we’ve learned and, hopefully, to make home brewing (and spending time with those you care about) more accessible and enjoyable for you as well.
