How and Why We Roast

When I began my coffee roasting journey I tested my results with friends to see what they thought. As my coffee developed it came to the point that family and friends preferred my specialty coffee over any they could purchase elsewhere.  Mugshot Coffee Roasters was born to bring premium, hand-crafted, and freshly-roasted coffee to consumers so they could enjoy the same freshness and quality product which I enjoy. Mugshot Coffee Roasters only roasts coffee in small batches.  One of our popular specialty roasts is the "Crafter’s Blend" created from single origin coffee from around the world.

Small Batch // Single Origin

Mugshot Coffee Roasters focuses on small batch and single origin coffee. Our custom gourmet coffee stands above the crowd. Single origin means that our coffee comes from small geographical areas and is never mixed with coffee beans from other parts of the world. This makes for a taste that is uniform, rich, and unparalleled. Some of our finest single origin varietals:
