My Personal Experience

Over the summer, I went to Inclusion Coffee Company for the first time with one of my dear friends. When walking into the coffee shop, I was immediately drawn to the high spirits of both customers and employees — I couldn't help but smile while being surrounded by such positivity! As I was sitting at a table waiting for my friend to arrive, I was greeted by a young woman named Emma. After saying hello she asked, "Are you waiting for your order?" I told her I was just looking over the menu for now but everything on the menu looked very appealing! She smiled while explaining to me that her shift was over and her driver would be picking her up shortly; however, I'm welcome to go to the counter whenever I'm ready to order. Afterward, I thanked her for the wonderful service and gave her a hug — she was so very kind and respectful!


Inclusion Coffee Company offers a wide variety of drinks, baked goods/pastries, sandwiches, salads, flatbreads, and breakfast items! Once my friend arrived, I ordered an iced matcha tea latte (I personally recommend it)!




If you'd like to visit Inclusion Coffee Company yourself, it is located at 3152 Village Square Dr in Hartland, WI!
