Our Story

We are a family of coffee lover’s who originally started roasting coffee at home. We roasted out first batch of coffee with a camp stove, steel bowl, and a wooden spoon on the back porch. Our love of discovering new things and self reliance drew us to the challenge initially. Our love of coffee and drive for excellence has brought us to a new way of roasting coffee since.

After a lot of burnt fingers and a lot of discussion on whether or not it was even possible to turn our love of roasting coffee into something more than a past time we decided that it was the only thing that we wanted to do. ever since we have pursued a better understanding of what makes a good cup of coffee, and how coffee roasting should really be done.

It turns out a camp stove and wooden spoon, while effective, are not exactly the most reliable tools to turn green coffee beans into a product we are proud to call our own. So we invested a lot of time and more than a little bit of savings into creating what Kettle Coffee Company has become today.

We still proudly roast our coffee in the community we started in and share our coffee with the friends and family that have been with us since the beginning. I don’t think we could ever thank them enough for helping us get where we are, and we are excited that they will be with us as we continue on this path.

We sincerely hope that you enjoy our coffee as much as we enjoy creating it.
