Grand Rapids Coffee Roasters' Saturday Experience began as a way to give friends and family members a chance to sample different coffee and blends and give feedback to improve  roasting and blending skills. The store is open every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to the public for these coffee roasting demonstrations. Some customers have worked on their own personal blends while others are turning into self-described "coffee snobs."

To do so, the store has tables, chairs, and even a "mug club" so that customers may enjoy your coffee in an eclectic coffee mug.
