4 Great Coffee Roasters Grown For Quality Not Quantity

Are you one of the 150 million Americans that drink some form of coffee per day (late, cappuccino, espresso shots, iced coffee)? Do you want your coffee that is grown for quality and not for quantity? If you are looking for an alternative to Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts, then this is the post for you.  In this post, I will share my favorite coffee roasters that will give you a good morning wake up.

Bird Rock Coffee 


Bird Rock Coffee has won numerous awards such as the Micro Coffee Roaster of the year in 2012, and made Coffee Review’s National List of the Top 30 Coffees of 2016. Some of their top roasts are:

  • Kenya Guama Peaberry
  • Panama Elida Estate
  • Sumatra Ulos Batak

This roaster is very involved in the direct trade, where they source most of their beans at origin.  They work directly with the people who grow it. One of the reasons that they are so successful is because of their farm to cup practices. This coffee roaster establishes a real collaboration with people that grow the coffee in order to establish high quality and consistency in their coffee.   They want to help farmers improve their coffee and their quality of life.

Hula Daddy Kona Coffee


Hula Daddy Kona Coffee has won numerous awards such as the All Hawaii Coffee Association Completion in 2015 and Hawaii Magazine’s Readers top pick in 2014.   All of their coffee is grown locally on their farm in Kona, Hawaii.  If you are visiting Hawaii they offer tours from 10am to 4pm and free coffee tasting. Some of their top roasts are:

  • Karen J
  • Kona Oli
  • Kona Mele Extra Fancy

Temple Coffee & Tea


Temple Coffee & Tea has won numerous awards such as the Top 30 coffees of 2013 and Top 1 of 17 Coffee Roaster in the US by CNN & Fortune Magazine. At the heart of their Temple is the Farm To Cup process because the environment in which coffee is grown is essential to providing quality in each cup. The Director of Coffee spends a lot of the year traveling to various coffee producing countries to find partners and control quality at every step of the process.   Some of their top roasts are:

  • Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Reko
  • Panama Finca Hartmann
  • El Salvador Santa Elena Honey Pacamara

Barrington Coffee Roasting Co


Barrington Coffee Roaster was named by Zaget as one of the 21 hottest coffee shops in the US and was named the best coffee shop in Boston in 2015. Their success and high quality stems from sourcing coffee from multi-generational farms, cutting edge farming collaboration, and consistency as some of their relationships with farms dates back to the early 90s. They roast their coffee daily. Any order received before 9am will be roasted and shipped out the same day to guarantee freshness.  Some of their top roasts are:

  • Gisuma
  • Gathugu
  • Hambela

So, are you ready to wake up today to a new brand of Coffee?
