Top Coffehouses Roasting on the Premises

This message board is read-only.

Not that long ago, Intelligentsia and Metropolis were considered the little guys in town. Both of the original stores - on Broadway and Granville, respectively - had small roasters in their cafes. Their commitment to small farmers in Guatemala, Ethiopia and Costa Rica has never been questioned. But due to their quality - and growth - neither of the original locations have a roaster on-site anymore. Their coffee is regularly carried on finer restaurant menus and they both roast their beans in massive warehouses to keep up with demand; Intelligentsia has expanded to Los Angeles.

Thanks to trailblazers like these two established brands, there seems to be another wave of small, artisanal roasters on the local coffee scene.­
