I had a chance to stop by Roast House Coffee last week and get a tour of their newly opened facility. Dave Rier, formerly the master roaster for Thomas Hammer coffee, is manning the controls of their Diedrich small batch roaster, so you know the coffee is going to be good. I especially appreciate their emphasis on relationships, both with the Spokane community and the coffee growers who provide their beans.
They are focusing on private label business, meaning that they will roast coffee for your business to sell under your own brand. It's a real opportunity for Spokane area businesses to get a high quality, artisan product that helps extend their own brand. Their coffee is currently available at the Main Market Food Co-Op under the Main Market brand.
The owners of the business are big supporters of the local food movement in Spokane. I wish them well. Stop by their roasting facility and say hi.
