Established in 1979

We’re an old and new school, no nonsense coffee roaster that understands people like to drink their coffee many different ways. Roger Chbeir started the business by asking the question, “what kind of coffee do people like to drink?” Our business continues to be shaped by the answer to that question. For nearly 40 years we have been offering a variety of coffees ranging from light roasted single origins to thoughtfully crafted and darkly roasted blends. The business continues to operate as Roger’s two sons Sami and Tony maintain the tradition of freshly roasting and careful curation of green beans to ensure ours and our customers’ standards are met. Our coffees are always specialty graded, freshly roasted, and delicious! Our goal is to help you make the coffee that you like to drink, at home. We thank our customers for their loyalty and look forward to many more years of sharing and drinking delicious coffees with you. Cheers!

He began roasting beside his brother and father in 1997. Sami, and the rest of the Chbeir kids, graduated from Churchill High School, where he met his wife Natalie. They have three kids whom they love to travel with. He’s a fair mountain biker, a lousy dancer and a lover of audio books.
