About Us

An Update from rmc

COVID-19 has caused a lot of changes in our world, but RMC is still here to stand. Sadly with a lower number of customers per day, we have had to cut hours for our team. A customer of ours gave us an idea for a donate button on our site to help support our team. The money will be placed in a pool, and for each paycheck we will split the donation money to our seven baristas excluding Kyle and Scott. We found this to be the fairest way to support our team's needs during this time. Please donate as you please.
