Our aim is to bridge the virtues of excellence, simplicity, and approachability. Our goal when sourcing coffee is to cultivate long-term, meaningful, and mutually beneficial relationships with every entity we engage in the supply chain.
As a 4th generation roaster I remember my father coming home with the smell of roasted coffee on his shirt, and sitting around a cupping table while a group of men slurped through samples. These are the memories that have informed who I am today and how we approach our coffee.
Utica Coffee Roasting Company began in 2002 with the purchase of our facility located in Utica, NY. Roasting began at this facility in 2005 and slowly but surely it became a cafe. We’re committed to offering the highest quality coffee available from around the world—right here in downtown Utica.
We carry many of the specialty coffee certifications such as Organic, Fair Trade, Rainforest Alliance, Bird Friendly, Swiss Water Process and Mountain Water Process. We make direct relationships with farmers in the producing countries to ensure that the coffee growers are receiving their fair share.
