About Us

Our Story

Lori and Tricia have lived in the area for decades.  The one thing they found missing was a community gathering place.  A place where all neighbors were welcome. A place where a good cup of coffee could be had with pleasant conversation.  They imagined a place where families could enjoy ice cream and play a game; where a couple could have their first date; and where friends could enjoy a good catch-up.

Coal Mine Coffee is that place.  It is a place where customers are called by name and special requests are not minded.  It is that place where locals have come in and found a friend. Students find it a comfortable place to study and business men and women enjoy the spacious seating and un-hurried atmosphere.

Midlothian, Virginia owes its beginnings to the men and women who came here to work the mines. Today, Coal Mine Coffee owes its beginnings to the neighbors in the area who appreciate great customer experience.  

We, at Coal Mine, look forward to enjoying a good cup of coffee and a treat with you!  Come see us.
