JFG Coffee - Downtown Knoxville
|JFG Coffee Sign - The JFG Coffee Company originated as a wholesale grocery company in 1882, selling coffee to grocery stores. JFG has been downtown since 1926, and since then, coffee has been part of the general aroma of downtown Knoxville.
The JFG stands for James Franklin Goodson, the companys founder.
Goodson began purchasing roasted whole bean coffee from an old coffee company in New York for his own personal use. This blend was to become the basis for what is known today as JFGs Special Blend.
Reily Foods, parent company of JFG Coffee, said Monday that it is building a $12 million roasting facility off Sutherland Avenue to replace its Old City operation.
