Roasting is both an art and a science. Dave, owner and lead roaster, has fully dedicated his life to learning this trade. Starting on his backporch in college, Dave began his career of roasting (and drinking) the very best. After just a year of hobby roasting he began roasting and buying for a local wholesale roaster in his hometown. With thousands of pounds under his belt, he then decided to start his dream company right down the street from where he grew up. Backporch roasts on a Diedrich IR-12 which is perfect for both big and small batch roasting. Dave describes drum roasting as the most romantic and old fashioned method of roasting.
Currently we buy from numerous sources and have been able to travel to numerous farms in the process of doing so. Check back often as our menu changes as we acquire new coffees often. If you have questions or would like to contact our roaster, please feel free to email him here.
