How and Why We Roast

I became a home coffee roaster years ago because I wasn’t satisfied with the freshness or quality available at local coffeehouses.  When I began my coffee roasting journey, I tested the 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.  Mugshot Coffee Roasters was born to bring this premium, hand-crafted, and freshly-roasted coffee to consumers so they could enjoy the same freshness and quality product. Mugshot Coffee Roasters only roasts coffee to order and in small batches.  We have our own special blend "Crafter’s Blend" and also coffees from single origins.

Small Batch // Single Orgin

Mugshot Coffee Roasters focuses on small batch and single origin coffee. Ours is custom and gourmet coffee that 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.

Mugshot Coffee Roasters focuses on these single origin varietals:

  • Bolivia: Has hints of chocolate, squash, fig, hazelnut. Also chardonnaylike, pleasant acidity, super creamy body and very balanced.

  • Colombia: Very popular coffee with floral, brown sugar, cinnamon, orange, and cola notes. This coffee is very complex; syrupy with medium to high acidity. Excellent taste with a clean finish.

  • Ethiopia: One of the world’s best known coffees and for good reason. Full of black tea, citrus, and vanilla flavor. Extremely silky and refined. Lavender, lemon, very clean and pleasant, lively acidity and creamy body.

  • Tanzania: Truly unique flavor that has very balanced acidity and medium body. Aromas of toast and cream with flavors of Meyer lemon curd.



Smooth Taste // Superior Flavor

Mugshot Coffee Roasters’ signature coffee is our Crafter’s Blend coffee and as indicated, it’s truly the best medium roast blend on the market.

What do you think of when you hear the term ‘Crafter’s Blend’?   Here at Mugshot Coffee Roasters, we have developed a blend that  combines different roasts, varietals, and brewing methods that impact the final product. Crafter’s Blend is truly an effort to bring the best of the world’s beans together for the perfect cup of coffee.
