I am a St. Louis, Missouri local musician and artisan coffee roaster. This coffee journey started when I became frustrated with the bold / bitter combination that I easily found everywhere, so I bought a little roaster, several books and lots of different green coffee beans.
I wanted a bold coffee that was smooth and could be easily enjoyed. I nailed it and started sharing, folks liked it and wanted more. My Redeye Roast is an espresso blend that is a satisfying, bold cup’a joe that ends on a smooth note.
Stringbean Coffee Company was started in the Summer 2011 and featured live roasts at local farmer’s markets and the demand continued to grow.
During this time I was a commercial banker in my fourteenth year. The rat race was far from fun and my career opportunities were near the ceiling. After 14 years, 6 months and 14 days I GOT OUT! and didn’t even get cake.
I am now doing something I love … coffee! While my little company continues to grow, it is my intent to offer the finest beans from around the world and passionately roast in small batches in non-computerized, old school ways while being an advocate for the environment and building community. I recycle, am eco friendly, and use beans that are Fair Trade Certified™ when available.
I hope you enjoy my coffee as much as I enjoy roasting, and remember freshly roasted coffee is better!
P.S. We now offer our coffee through subscriptions
