Great coffee begins with quality beans and is made perfect through the roasting process. The Little River Roasting crew uses a small 25-pound drum roaster. Working in small batches, we create handcrafted roasted coffee beans, achieving the highest quality available.
A hands-on team creates the best roasts, hands down.
Just like we think it's important to know the people who grow our beans, our customers deserve to know a little bit about the team behind their brews. If you're anything like us, you might even think your cup of Joe tastes better when you meet the folks who roasted it.
