Whether you’re connecting with colleagues, friends, neighbors or simply looking for friendly place to grab a cup of coffee on the go, you won’t find anyone more knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the coffee business than owner, Mike Shipley.  Mike and his family got their start in 2006 when they opened Conscious Cup, their first café and coffee roasting shop in Crystal Lake. They take great pride in offering environmentally and socially sustainable coffees made with ethically sourced beans and served with a smile.
