ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

At Arrowroot, our goal is to bring you excellent coffee in a way that is sustainable our planet and coffee farmers.

For Our Planet: We are one of few roasters using a fully electric machine. Electric roasting reduces greenhouse gas emissions by almost 50% compared to traditional gas roasting.

For Our Farmers: We are meticulous about the beans we purchase, and making sure our farming partners make a living wage. This involves extensive research on economic and farming conditions on a country by country basis.

 

LOCAL ROASTING

The best tasting coffee comes from freshly roasted beans. That's why our coffees are roasted small batch, in house, for you.

 

ETHICAL SOURCING

High-quality beans make high-quality coffee. We create great coffee sustainably by purchasing high-quality beans and paying their worth. This means helping farmers earn enough to provide for their families. When farmers thrive, so do we.

 

QUALITY BREWING

Training and research are at our core. We want everyone to get the most from our coffee. We offer training and instruction to our team and community. As we research and learn, we'll bring knowledge to the community so everyone can have a better cup.

 

OUR STAFF

Jacob Dinardo - Owner/Head Roaster

A life-long coffee drinker, Jacob is the founder and owner/operator of Arrowroot. His first memory of coffee is helping his grandma make coffee on Sunday mornings. Since then, Jacob has dived head first into the world of specialty coffee. He spends his time trying different brew methods, researching facts about different coffee origins and processing methods, and being a general coffee nerd. Outside of work Jacob enjoys making music with his friends and spending time outdoors with his family.
