Daniel and Beth

Originally we wanted to start a coffee shop to create a local place for us to hang out with others. We were thinking fancy drinks like mochas and frappuccinos. We then looked further into the craft of coffee. When Beth bought the first bag of green coffee from Panama and we roasted it in a skillet. What happened next was truly fate. We tasted for the first time the true beauty of freshly roasted coffee. We now only drink our coffee black because we don't want to miss any of the unique flavors!

Something else happened that night. Our first standard for coffee was born. Freshly roasted coffee is our motto and once you have had your favorite coffee fresh it will be your motto too!

After discovering how delicious fresh coffee could truly be, our journey had just begun. But we needed help. After years of looking for a great source for coffee and trying to make connections with small farmers, we were finally introduced to Passionate Harvest Coffee. They have been an awesome source and are aligned with our vision of finding coffee that puts back into the communities it comes from as well as tasting amazing!

Our Location

We are located in the beautiful town of Rio Rancho, New Mexico. Our roastery's elevation is 5,250 feet high (just 30 feet shy of a mile) giving us a unique roasting profile from our coastal friends. The higher elevation has been said to help roasters develop flavors in the roast without baking or scorching the coffee beans. I'm still looking into that theory but so far our coffee roaster is putting out a great cup! Rio Rancho has been our home for over 2 decades and the birth place of 3 of my daughters. We love Rio Rancho and are excited to begin our new venture here!
