Right then and there, he fell in love with the country, the people and the coffee?especially the coffee. Fifteen years later, when Danny founded The Roasterie in his basement in one of Kansas City's great neighborhoods, Brookside, it just made sense that he would partner directly with farmers and pay above market values to get the best of the best coffee beans.
