Our Roasters – Verve Coffee Roasters

If you don’t already know we are what some call a “multi-roaster cafe”. That simply means that we scour the country to find the best coffee roasters and then bring them to Sacramento to be served at our cafe. We believe that there is no “holy grail” of coffee or coffee roasters, but rather each roaster offers different, equally amazing, coffees, roasted in their own unique styles, letting us provide you and Sacramento with a wide selection of amazing coffees to enjoy. We carry 4 different coffee roasters at any given time and once every month we drop one off and bring a new one on, giving you something new to experience every month. We are extremely proud to be bringing Sacramento the best coffees from around the country and the globe. Here is a little highlight from one of our coffee roasters.

Verve Coffee Roasters

Located: Santa Cruz
Current Coffees: Costa Rica, El Puente & Panama,  Elida Estate
About: Well lets just say these guys have a special place in our hearts. They have been there for us through thick and thin. They were there till 4AM helping us set up our first cafe, they have driven coffee up from santa cruz in a pinch, and have grown to be a huge influential coffee roaster with multiple cafes. They have two of the coolest owners Colby and Ryan and two of the coolest employees Jared and Chris. They are like family to us, end of story. A little about them from their web site:


Verve Coffee Roasters supports the producers and exporters, roasters and baristas who are paying attention—who are invested in making each cup an authentic, quality experience. They wake up our palates every day to what is possible.

It’s important to us to forge genuine connections to place: Our beachfront neighborhood, where roasting and cupping have joined surfing as daily communal rituals. San Francisco and the greater Bay Area, where coffee culture has come barreling into its own. Places further a field, like Brooklyn, Pittsburgh and Manhattan that have tasted Verve Coffee and come back for more. And of course, coffee farms in remote villages from Costa Rica to Kenya.

Wherever a farmer is bent on growing the best green coffee ever, that’s where Verve Coffee comes from. Everything we do—sourcing, roasting, brewing, educating—is about bringing you that place in a cup. Because coffee should be true.

We spend as much time as possible with the producers who supply our green coffee. Give and take at the source is what ultimately leads to a richer, headier experience for people who love Verve Coffee.

Before we buy green beans, we run sample roasts through several cupping sessions. Then the roast profile refinement begins. We work a 12-kilo German-made Probat roaster on site at the 41st Avenue roastery. We keep the roasting close to the café to monitor how the coffees perform for our baristas, who help us hone taste profiles and calibrate brewing parameters. Our regular customers know the café is also our lab, and they line up for the experiment. Their feedback keeps us open to exploring where a coffee can go.

But we’re not reckless. We roast by hand and meticulously record everything we do. So we can reproduce what slays us and learn from what doesn’t.


So catch some waves and swing by their new roastery, which may be the coolest place on earth, and say hello, these guys are super friendly and will most likely take you out for a piece of pizza and a cream soda.
