Family strong and Oakland proud since 1924. We are one of the original coffee & tea purveyors in the San Francisco Bay Area and the oldest specialty bean shop in the western United States.
As one of the very first craft roasters in the Bay Area, we’ve offered premium coffee and tea to local restaurants and hotels since our beginning in 1924. Fast forward 95 years, three generations and many awards later, to today when we received the coveted 2019 Roaster of the Year award. This is a one-time only recognition, shared with just a handful of the best known craft coffee roasting names in America. Roast Magazine, a leading resource for specialty coffee, created this award to highlight our industry’s best and most innovative roasters – those who show a lasting commitment to exceptional quality, innovative industry leadership, staff education and environmental sustainability.
