Believe it or not, specialty coffee was not invented in Seattle. Actually, specialty coffee was invented by your great-grandmother. Yep! In the old days, you’re great-grandma roasted and brewed one very mean cup of coffee. As the premier Spokane Coffee Roaster as well as the premier Coeur d’Alene Coffee Roaster, Lake City Coffee is bringing back truly old fashioned, naturally sweet gourmet coffee. We understand that true coffee lovers are no longer satisfied with burnt and bitter industrial coffee. Instead…
Spokane Coffee Roaster
Imagine taking a few minutes out of your hectic life for a warm, soul satisfyingly smooth cup of coffee. You might be in your car, at work, or at home. But this time is for you. Imagine, your mind calms, your breath steadies, you relax, and say, “Ahhhh… that’s good. That’s reeeeal good”. It’s almost like the worries of life recede and your world shrinks to just you and that cup of coffee. And for a few minutes, everything seems to be in place.
Just take a good look that the gal in the image to your right. Notice she’s not in a busy and noisy coffee shop. She’s not getting “amped up”. Coffee, real coffee, is a “relaxing” experience. At Lake City Coffee, we’re the premier Spokane Coffee Roaster, and we’re creating what may very well be, the best and most relaxing home coffee experience of your life.
Coeur d’Alene Coffee Roaster
Like the wine industry in the 70’s and the crafted artisan beer industry over the last dozen years, the coffee industry too is going through a minor revolution. There’s a small but growing percentage of coffee drinkers, particularly in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene that are no longer willing to accept the burnt and bitter taste of industrial coffee. They want more…
And I’m betting that you too want more. You want SMOOOOOTH… You want real coffee flavor. You want that “Ahhhhh…” moment.
As the premier Spokane Coffee Roaster and Coeur d’Alene Coffee Roaster, we know that you’d be hard pressed to find fresher whole bean coffee.
Here’s a little know fact. All roasted coffee starts going stale in about a month and no amount of space age packaging can change that fact. Unfortunately, a vast majority of the coffee marketed in the US has been sitting in warehouses or on store shelves for months if not years. On the other hand, Lake City Coffee guarantees from our roaster to your table in 24-48 hours. When it’s this fresh, you can really taste the difference.
We only source coffee beans that have been hand picked, sun dried, and carefully sorted by small, single-source, high altitude, Central American, farmers. In all truthfulness, if I couldn’t taste a big difference between the best beans and cheap beans, I wouldn’t bother. But guess what? You really can taste a big difference. No brag – Just fact! Since we buy the best beans that money can buy, that’s the start of an over-the-top great cup of coffee.
Can I be blunt? To take the best beans that money can buy and then burn them, is nuts. You might as well be drinking Kingsford Charcoal. We like smooth, full flavored coffee that actually tastes like… like… well… coffee. What a concept! So, we roast the old fashion way; low and slow; bringing the beans to a dark brown color; never burnt and never bitter. The difference in taste between industrial burnt coffee and our gently roasted coffee is nothing short of amazing.
Best Whole Bean Coffee
The good news is this. You can make much better coffee at home with fresh whole bean coffee than you can ever buy in ANY coffee shop. All you need is really good, really fresh, whole bean coffee, and about 60 seconds. Trust me, the difference is significant. Look, in our towns of Spokane Washington and Coeur d’Alene Idaho, we’re known as the freshest Coffee Roaster In Spokane and freshest Coffee Roaster in Coeur d’Alene.
We’ve been approached by some of the area’s best hotels, restaurants, grocery stores, and coffee shops. And we keep turning them down. Crazy huh? But here’s the thing. Our passion is providing the very best home brewed coffee on the planet. We don’t want to be the best Spokane Coffee Roaster or the best Coeur d’Alene Coffee Roaster. We want to be your personal home coffee roaster.
So, is our coffee right for you? Well, if you like burnt and bitter industrial coffee, then you probably won’t like our coffee. But if you’re truly a coffee lover, coffee connoisseur, or just a coffee snob, then we’re confident that you’ll love our super fresh and super smooth whole bean coffee.
Even though we are widely considered the premier Spokane Coffee Roaster and Coeur d’Alene Coffee Roaster, our intent has always been to just become your personal coffee roaster. We’re only looking for 1,000 friends that love coffee as much as we do. Therefore, we get to personally know each and every customer. We know what they like, how they brew their coffee, and the names of some of their kids. Well, that’s not too tough though, because we supply their kids with coffee too. So, as your personal coffee roaster, we look forward to getting to know you.
