Vos Roasters was born 2017 in Seattle, Washington out of the desire to roast coffee that I would actually buy. Living in Seattle this shouldn’t be a big issue - there is a coffee shop on every corner. But the truth is, great coffee isn’t that easy to find. There were only a small handful of shops where I would go to buy single origin coffee that was, in my humble opinion, roasted perfectly.
I had to know: What were they doing different? Why was coffee that tasted so much better coming out of a particular small coffee shop and not out of these big chains that go nationwide?
One budding obsession later I learned that the coffee I was after comes out of a movement called Third Wave or Specialty coffee. At its essence Third Wave coffee is methodically roasted and brewed in a way that best highlights the natural nuances and complexities of each coffee bean.
After understanding what I cherished in coffee I bought a roaster and set out to roast coffee that would satisfy my perceptive palate. I trained in Third Wave roasting. I traded tips with my favorite roasters. I roasted coffee I loved.
Along the way I found a lot of people who shared my love for single origin coffee and I decided to share my passion with them, thus Vos Roasters was born. Coffee beans roasted for those with the same discerning taste and strict craving for quality.
