Our Craft

Everything starts with great coffee.

We’ve taken the best beans from Ethiopia and developed our own way of roasting in our own shop to get it right.  The result? Small batches that deliver smooth, rich, or authentic tastes–always flavorful and of the high quality our customers have come to expect.

Coffee is more than making sure that every small batch delivers big flavor.  The art of coffee making can be found in our coffee ceremonies, where coffee is roasted, ground, and served before you.  To share a ceremony is a traditional sign of friendship–the perfect way to show how we feel about our customers.

We’ve invested time, energy, and passion to get our blends right whether in our shop, your home or your office.  We’ve built our reputation on high quality blends–roasted fresh every day for our shop, or after you order it for our online customers–and we’re proud of that.
