As coffee lovers, we cannot stop enjoying the aroma that freshly roasted coffee beans will deliver to us. There was a local coffee roaster where I used to live and I did enjoy driving past every morning on the way to work. I could say that I would enjoy the aroma of coffee more than the taste sometimes. Personally, I might be more addicted to the aroma than the actual brown liquid 🙂 Well, this could be just an emphasis on how much I love the aroma of coffee. There’s no wonder why I got curious about discovering the best coffee roasters!
In this article, I would love to help you get that fresh coffee without going all the way out. It has become more convenient for us to order coffee online and get it delivered due to the current pandemic. Yes, you read it right. That delicious coffee beans will be delivered to you. How convenient it is! Let me share my discovery with you here. Allow me to list the US & Australia coffee roasters only as the main readers of my blog are from these two countries.
Best Coffee Roasters In The USA
Intelligentsia does focus on quality and they have a direct relationship with their coffee growers. There are 2 locations where the coffee beans are roasted: one in Chicago and the other in Los Angels.
There is a subscription service and it includes free shipping. Otherwise free shipping on US orders of $40 or more. I would recommend this season’s best bundle since you can save $10 compared to be purchased individually.
Stumptown Coffee has developed the Direct Trade model of sourcing coffee beans. What this means is that they pay higher prices for the quality, they actually visit growers to get to know them and work together, and they keep the relationship over the years.
They can ship coffee outside of the US with an order by email and then by phone for payment. Please keep in mind that they do not ship pre-ground coffee as freshness is extremely important to make delicious cups of coffee.
Craft Coffee offers a subscription service only with free shipping within the US. They ship coffee worldwide and there is no commitment on the subscription.
The best part is that you will get fresh coffee at affordable prices. If you buy 4 bags of 12oz beans, then you will save up to 42% off retail prices. What a great deal it is!
Yes Plz is extremely unique in that they deliver new coffee each week. What does this mean? They source the best beans worldwide and roast them in Los Angeles to release a new delicious blend weekly. It cannot get more unique than that. If you prefer single-origin coffee, they can do it for you too.
You can select either 340g (12oz) or 250g (8.8oz) and the frequency of delivery to your door with free shipping within the US. You can try their sample bag for free with only a $3 shipping fee. It is definitely worth trying.
Olympia Coffee was born in Olympia as the name would suggest. It started small, but it has grown much bigger than the founders would’ve probably imagined (They sold the business in 2010.).
Olympia Coffee is certified as a B Corp (Benefit Corporation) and this proves how much they care about their coffee beans and people related to them including customers. Moreover, if you order more than 4 bags of 12oz coffee or a bulk bag of more than 3lb, you will get free shipping within the US.
I love the story of Coava Coffee and I hope you will too. It began in Portland in 2008 by Matt Higgins. He studied and worked hard to make his dream of the coffee business come true. His dedication to sourcing the best quality beans is impressive and his hands-on approach is respectable.
They focus on single-origin coffee only. You can buy their beans as a one-off or a subscription. They offer free shipping on orders over $25, which is quite accessible (free shipping on subscriptions). They have a limited time offer of a free chocolate bar on orders over $30. Great bonus!
Nossa Familia means ‘our family’ in Portuguese. It was founded in Portland in 2004 by Brazilian native Augusto Carneiro. His family has grown coffee in Brazil since the 1890s and he decided to bring his family’s beautiful beans to Portland. We are lucky that he did.
They keep expanding as in the cafe locations and coffee farms where they source their beans from. They are the first certified B Corp in Portland.
Equator Coffees started in a garage in Marin County in 1995 by two ladies, Helen and Brooke. It became the first B Corp certified coffee roaster in California in 2011. The company has grown so well that it founded its very own coffee farm in Panama in 2008. It is incredible!

Their selection is unique: There are instant craft coffee packets and dripkit so that you can just add hot water and enjoy. You can even order nitro flash brew that will be delivered cold. Except for the nitro flash brew, the standard shipping is free. How generous!
A couple, Will and Kathleen opened Tandem Coffee Roasters in Portland in 2012. In 2014, they opened a second cafe with a bakery. Perfect match with their longtime friend Briana who is a born baker.
They ship to 242 countries and the US shipping is a flat rate of $7 whereas free shipping on orders over $50. What is unique about Tandem is that they sell green beans so that you can experiment roasting the beans at home. Free shipping on subscriptions within the US.
