In our coffee shop, we help our baristas, local businesses, brands and entrepreneurs grow.
In our coworking space, we bring people together and encourage companies to collaborate and network.
At GROU, we make things better through coffee and delicious and healthy local food options. We are 100% local.
GROU features a coffee shop and a coworking space.
The shop is where we showcase the best of our community: local bakers, farmers, producers, roasters and shops. The office is where creative freelancers and small businesses can work together to develop ideas and help their customers grow.
We are proud to work with local suppliers, bakers, farmers and producers in Miami who provide us with the highest quality of ingredients available. From seed to cup, from farm to table in Coral Gables.
We want you to be part of our team and feel you are behind the counter with us. Learn about our coffee and food, inspirational stories from our vendors, suppliers and partners from Miami.
We are dedicated to making better and measurable decisions for a positive impact in our planet. Coffee only tastes good when it’s made ethically.
We offer healthier menu options for you with plenty of organic, plant-based, vegan and gluten free alternatives. We consciously pick better ingredients and maintain a better operation, which results in better taste.
Our team works hard to meet the highest quality standards all throughout our coffee and food journey. We want you to have our best product every time, that's why we use modern and sophisticated equipment that help us guarantee consistency.
We focus on bringing people together and we do that by promoting a sense of community inside and outside our space. All the way from our staff, partners, customers and neighbors, we are here to support our local community.

Bar is an outgoing, energetic and passionate person who loves a hot espresso or hot tea, and when I say hot... It better be HOT, trust me!!
Bar is the creative brain on our team, although sometimes she can get “TOO CREATIVE” I have to admit that she does come up with some brilliant ideas. Being creative, passionate and adding her attention to detail makes her a marketing expert, which sucks for me because not only she’s “RIGHT” at home, but now she’s actually right at work as well.
She is always finding solutions and new ways to do things, so when she has an idea, she is going to put her head around it until she makes it work. Those are great assets for one person, but her biggest attribute is people. She has the ability to bring the best out of everyone around her and help whoever needs her... Well, sometimes she would help you even if you don’t need it. That’s the kind of person she is and GROU is a channel for her to give back to the community and do what she does best, MAKE PEOPLE BETTER! She loves local business and always motivates people to support and shop small businesses in Miami.
Super is the "yes" guy in our team! Our motivator, which is what I admire the most about him (and what I encourage you to look for in any business partner). If you need somebody that supports you and motivates you to chase your dreams, he's the guy, I’m telling you. He won't turn down an idea. He also transfers the same motivation into his personal and professional growth, constantly learning and TRYING TO BE BETTER just like we do at GROU!
Super is 100% goal-driven, and very focused, so yes, we love having him around because he does not stop! He keeps the team pretty balanced, he knows how to make the out-of-the-box ideas happen, thinking about every detail, every important decision, every component. Best problem-solver! SOO PATIENT, I mean, annoyingly patient!
But most importantly, he's a people-guy. He knows how to listen and understand what people need. That makes him great at customer service, managing a team and incredibly good handling feedback. Also, pretty funny, which helps! He's definitely the guy behind the numbers and the operations. So smart & caring, thanks to him GROU has become a REALITY and we'll be opening our doors in Coral Gables, Miami this summer 2021! He loves local business and always supports small brands!
