Coffeehouse 101

Rice Coffeehouse is a completely student-run business committed to caffeinating all those who study, work, and visit Rice University. Located in the Rice Memorial Center by the campus bookstore and the Student Center, Coffeehouse is in a convenient location to serve the entire campus!

Coffeehouse is host to a number of student art pieces, as well as regular live music performances from student artists. Consider signing up to show everyone what you can do

At Chaus, you can get drip coffee, espresso drinks, tea, and smoothies. If you’re hungry, we also serve pastries such as bagels and danishes, all sourced from our local Houston vendors

From encouraging customers to use their own mug, to providing compostable straws and reduced plastic waste, Chaus strives to promote and practice a sustainable business model
