Treat yourself to the best of Yellowstone National Park and small-town charm when visiting West Yellowstone! Check out Morning Glory Coffee & Tea, a local business that's been owned and operated by the same family for 16 years. Named after the park’s stunning Morning Glory Pool, their coffee is as rich in flavor as the pool is in color. Chris and his wife met while working at Old Faithful in Yellowstone in the early 1990s. With roughly 30 years in the coffee business since then, including a stint with the Kauai Coffee Company in Hawaii, he and Laura eventually landed back in Yellowstone just outside the West Entrance. And we sure are happy they did!

A truly family-owned Montana business, Chris, Laura, and their two boys run the entire show, from sourcing the beans to roasting and packaging. The Montana Gift Corral is proud to partner with and carry Morning Glory coffee blends and teas. Our customers are big fans, and so are we!

The Coffee

From the morning cup to that afternoon pick-me up, Americans love their coffee! According to the National Coffee Association’s National Coffee Drinking Trends report, 64% of us are drinking coffee every day. With so many top-quality blends to choose from, it's no wonder why we can't get enough! Trust us, incredible coffee is just around the corner over at Morning Glory Coffee!

Burke with Morning Glory Coffee sources coffee beans from around the world from top coffee producing nations like Columbia, Guatemala, Papua New Guinea, Peru, and more. Their business focuses mostly on blended roasts, which means Burke meticulously measures out and combines coffees from a variety of origins to make delicious, balanced cups that are otherwise unachievable on their own. The result is a plethora of delightful blends we both enjoy and sell at the Montana Gift Corral, like the Grizzly Blend, Campfire Blend, and Obsidian Blend

One of MGC’s most popular coffees, not surprisingly, is their oh so tasty Huckleberry Blend, one of their many flavored coffee offerings. You can find Morning Glory blends packaged whole bean, ground, and in K-cup pods!
