On Nov. 22, 1978, Danny O?Neill picked his first batch of coffee beans in the mountainous, coffee-growing region around the Poás volcano while studying abroad in Costa Rica. 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.
Today, direct trade makes more sense than ever. The Roasterie still believes in partnering with farmers at origin, in mutually beneficial direct trade relationships ? removing the middle man from the equation. By doing this, our farmers get much higher prices for their coffees than they would with other conventional and non-conventional trade systems.
One of the most renowned specialty coffee roasters in the nation, nobody else does it like we do. We are committed to finding the best coffees from around the world, for a fair price. Those beans are then roasted using a convection air-roasting method, instead of the more traditional drum-roasting method, to ensure superior consistency and a tastier, smoother cup of coffee.
Quality, freshness, education. That's what The Roasterie is about. Try any of our coffees and you'll be able to taste and smell the difference our commitment makes.
