Roaster Profile: Velton's Coffee Roasting Company
Velton's Coffee was one of Seattle Coffee Gear's first roasting partners. In light of this, we couldn't wait to sit down with them for another edition of our Roaster Profile series. This week we'll look at the history of Velton's roasting, with an interview with Velton himself to follow next week!
Pacific Northwest Born and Raised
Velton's Roasting is owned and operated by Velton himself in Everett, Washington. This industrious roaster starting working in coffee in Seattle Washington in 1989. Velton quickly developed a passion and desire to learn about everything coffee, from cupping to running a bar, and eventually to roasting.
Since getting into the industry, Velton has been able to explore roles in coffee from the Pacific Northwest to Hawaii. Eventually, he found himself going from a desire to learn about roasting to making it a profession.
Velton's Coffee Roasting Company
Velton's philosophy is to try to offer a range of coffee rather than get tunnel vision on a specific roast level or origin. This results in a rich array of roasts that will sure please any coffee drinker. Between light, sweet single origins and darks singles and blends, Velton really does have a coffee for everyone.
We love Velton because we're able to get candid, down to earth answers to questions without needing to read between lines. This openness and friendly style of communication makes it easy to enjoy partnering with this experienced, ever evolving roaster. Check out our range of Velton's roasts in our catalog, and check back next week for our full interview with the man himself!
