Uncommon Grounds is our coffee bar located on the main floor in Blanchard Campus Center. It offers a variety of coffees and coffee drinks, using only organic fair trade varietal coffees daily.  We offer cappuccino, espresso, latte, mochas, as well as smoothies and freshly baked bagels, our own MHC bakery pastries and desserts (including our own homemade Café gourmet cookies!).

In keeping with our ongoing commitment to use local products, we  serve Pierce Bros Coffee, located in Greenfield, Massachusetts.  All of the coffee beans they use are 100% Fair Trade Certified and 100 % Certified Organic.  Since 1994, the Pierce Brothers have been blending only shade-grown organic Arabica beans, chosen from the world's premier coffee regions.  We feature milkshakes, malts, and other frozen ice cream drinks made with "Bart's Homemade" Snow's ice cream, produced locally in Greenfield, Massachusetts and Mc Cray's Farm milk, produced locally in Hadley, Massachusetts.  Convenient pint size containers of Bart's Homemade ice cream can also be purchased in several flavors.

While Uncommon Grounds is not on the board plan, full board students can use their Dining Dollar$ to purchase any items in Uncommon Grounds. Additionally, all students have the option to use cash or MHCXpress account.
