This Great Coffee Place in Hartland will close Dec. 15

VILLAGE OF HARTLAND – In less than a month, regulars at This Great Coffee Place will have to find a new cafe to satisfy their caffeine cravings.


Owner Joan Folvag announced in a Nov. 15 Facebook post that the coffee shop would close Dec. 15. She said she and her family have decided to sell the business.

“It was not a decision made lightly, but for our family, it is time for this change,” she wrote.

“I cannot express how much I have loved each and every day, each and every customer, and each and every co-worker. I have stories to make me laugh, ponder, and glow for years to come.”

This Great Coffee Place, 365 Cottonwood Ave., opened 11 years ago in the village. It had a reputation for being an environmentally friendly business because Folvag refused to carry bottled water and used porcelain dinnerware, stainless steel utensils and reusable mugs instead of disposable items.

She also offered used coffee grounds for gardens or composting.

“It’s step-by-step, little by little, as we reflect on how we can do things differently,” Folvag said in 2010.

The business does not yet have a buyer, Folvag noted in the post.

The cafe is one of a handful in or near downtown Hartland. The others include Birch and Banyan Coffee, the Pink Mocha Cafe and Hartbrook Cafe.

This Great Coffee Place is open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.
