Local college student opens coffee shop

BLUEFIELD, Va. (WVVA) - Coffee lovers...A new coffee shop is opening its doors in Bluefield.

"The Grind" is owned by a local college student. The shop is in the heart of downtown Bluefield on Spring Street.

The army veteran and college football player Collin O'Donnell started this shop with the help of his fellow classmates and a late competition entry in Tazewell County.

"We submitted it an hour before it was due on September 20th and ended up submitting it and going through the process and we won," says O'Donnell.

The store will feature different coffee brands and roasts from all around the Appalachia region. You can visit his e-commerce shop here:
