Coffee Roasters

We think coffee is delicious & coffee roasting is cool.

Coffee roasting was discovered in the 12th and 13th centuries. Rudimentary clay dishes or stoneware were used to roast the berries over an open flame. Roasting transforms the green coffee bean to brown. Now there are more sophisticated ways of roasting, like drum roasting and fluid-bed roasting, that have enabled the industry to grow into what it is today. New on the scene are electric roasters. We hope to learn more about them, too.
Since we are exploring all of MA towns & cities, we thought we’d also check out whose roasting the coffee! Below is a list of independent coffee roasters in MA and the towns they roast in. We’ll link ’em up, in case you wanna check out their websites.
