Small Batch Roaster - Roasting Daily
What does this mean? Roasting in small batches means we can meticulously control the roasting process. Roasting daily means we can roast-to-order, providing the freshest and highest quality coffee to you.
We roast our beans daily at our facility located on Soquel Avenue in Santa Cruz. Our Roastmaster and Owner have 30 years combined experience creating unique and wonderful single origin and blend coffees. We are a small batch roaster which means we can meticulously control the roasting process, which provides the highest quality bean to you. We have spent years perfecting the art of using our experience, senses, intuition and knowledge to make adjustments and take the coffee where it needs to go.
The green beans go through a metamorphosis in the hands of our roasters who guide them through a constant evaluation of colors, aromas, sounds, and shapes while tumbling through our steel drum roaster.
Our coffee is sold to cafes all around the San Francisco Bay Area and we ship nationwide to coffee connoisseurs who appreciate an amazing cup of coffee.
We use Organic and Fair Trade beans, and Bird-Friendly beans whenever possible. This is a way of saying thank you to the planet and the workers that produce it. You can check out the links section of this site for more information on Fair Trade and Bird Friendly farmers.
