About Us

This famous historic Roasterie and Coffee Museum is also home to The Wet Whisker, the original coffee company of specialty coffee and fair trade pioneer, Jim Stewart - which eventually became known as Seattle's Best Coffee and the Minglement, a small neighborhood organic health food store.

Traditionally farmed for generations, our Heirloom®Coffee beans are rare and come from the older variety plants, some of which grow nearly wild. All are shade grown at high altitudes in mineral rich volcanic soil, giving them their vibrantly deep and complex flavor. All our coffee is fresh roasted on site on the Roasterie's original vintage roaster, preserving the art of hand roasting.
