The Longboard Story

Why roast coffee? 

We all should know what goes into our cup of coffee. I want to know where my coffee comes from. You lose the flavor profile when you blend and over roast coffee. Bringing those flavors out and highlighting the process is a passion of mine and that is why I roast coffee.  

 

The first wave.

I got my official start in college as a barista in Newport, RI with Empire Tea and Coffee. Unofficially it started in Rome when I was a kid, I would drink the last little bit out of my parents morning cappuccino. The rest was history. 

 

A roasting surfer. 

After college I went into nuclear security and then moved on to diplomatic security in the middle east. I missed the joy of working in the coffee world and wanted to get back asap. I devised a plan to learn how to roast and so far I have been in business since April, 2019

 

Radical vision. 

The mission is to bring high quality coffee and educate others on how much more you can get out of a cup of coffee. Welcome to the new wave of coffee drinkers. Todays coffee sometimes lacks the complexity and can be over roasted leading to a burnt taste. Then most roasters only have 12 oz. bags, but I want to deliver a value with my one pound bags.

 

Always fresh, single origin, and one pound. Our Promise.

Founded in 2019, we are continually engaged in perfecting the sourcing, roasting, preparation, and delivery of the most delicious coffee we can find. We specialize in roasting coffees to their full potential.
