Artisan Coffee Roaster

Small Batch Roaster & Specialty Coffee Shop

Laveggio Roasteria is a true artisan coffee roaster and specialty coffee shop founded 16 years ago. We roast on a drum roaster, by-hand, in the artisan tradition - without the aid of computerized controllers, laptops and roasting software. We have roasted over 10,000 loads of coffee by-hand at the Roasteria since 2007.  We roast, sample roast and cup all of the production - every day. In order to provide a diverse spectrum of flavors we rotate our coffees frequently. Coffees are sourced from all growing regions and roasted to highlight their "terroir", which is their inherent flavors, aromas, and intricacies, based on where they are grown. We are dedicated to offering coffees we're excited about and driven by our intent to provide the highest quality coffees possible.

A Passion for Coffee

The Coffee Professionals Behind Laveggio

Laveggio was born 16 years ago from our passion for good coffee. Since then we have been behind the bar every day for 14 years, hand-crafting espresso drinks and brewing specialty Coffee to SCAA standards. We started the espresso bar and roasting business on Court Street in 2007 to take control of our product and provide something missing in the marketplace - high quality, artisan roasted coffee, served by highly trained people who are passionate about coffee and who want to help you explore it. We strive to be "an antidote for the standard coffee chain experience". We chose to roast by-hand, without the aid of computerized roast controllers or roasting software, to preserve and showcase the craft of true artisan roasting. To date we have roasted over 10,000 loads of coffee by-hand at the Roasteria. 


How It Started

My wife and I found coffee as a profession later in life than most. Having lived in on both the East and West Coast, we have had some great (and a lot of bad) coffee. We have thought from the very beginning that the entire experience - whether buying a cup of drip coffee or beans to brew at home from one of the big coffee chains leaves a lot to be desired - and we could do a much better job. Instead of a fast food coffee experience - we set out to make it a professional coffee experience, where the Barista can engage the customer and make knowledgeable suggestions from the standpoint of a trained palate, not reciting tasting notes verbatim.  Timing is everything in life. A chance meeting with a Master Roaster in 2000, led to sample roasting and cupping an amazing "M.A.O Horse" Harrar on a magical Saturday afternoon. A long and interesting learning process began, cupping and spitting, sample roasting Huehue and Harrar on a Sivitz air gun, learning the SCAA brew chart, pulling shots with J.G. on an ancient manual 3 group Faema, and many long conversations with Don Schoenholdt, Wilem Boot and Carl Staub have led us here. We have never looked back.


The Highest Standards

Our quality and freshness standards are among the toughest in the business. We roast, brew and sell all of our coffees within a 7 day window. After 7 days the coffee is no longer at its peak and we pull it from stock. We donate these coffees to the Veterans Center, First Responder organizations (Police & Fire Department), local Shelters, or others in need. Our spent grounds and chaff continue to build the soil of the VINES gardens.

Teamwork

Everyone at the Roasteria works as a team. We are a group of talented and focused coffee professionals, each with our own strengths. We work together to make your coffee experience the best it can be. Every employee at Laveggio Roasteria must pass a palate test as a condition of employment. That means that each Barista can discuss the tasting notes for each coffee with you, as well as the correct brewing method and the correct grind to get the best result. Each one of us is driven to show you the difference between our experience and expertise -vs- the standard coffee chain experience.

Our Menu

Our menu is very simple and straightforward - double espresso shots, Cortado, European latte (5 oz), Cappuccino (6 oz) American latte (12 oz) single origin drip (and the occasional seasonal blend).  We offer both light and dark roast drip daily. We offer pour-over and our own cold brew blends.

We don't offer flavored coffees and we don't add flavored syrup to our drip or cold brew coffee. We source very high quality coffees and roast them to highlight their natural flavors, and we will not change our drip or cold brew coffees by adding a syrup - so please don't ask our staff to do so..

Bagged Coffee

At the Roasteria we don't offer pre-bagged coffee (of an unknown age) sitting by the cash register. Every bag we sell is bagged or blended by-hand, after a discussion with one of us - from the same coffees that we are brewing,. Each bag is clearly marked with a roast date and roast level. We unconditionally guarantee each bag of coffee we sell to be; freshly roasted within our 7 day window, and taste as advertised. We will replace it, no questions asked if it is not.


By highlighting the terroir of the coffee with a lighter roasting style - we strive to allow our coffee to convey a sense where they were grown when you drink them. For the most part, roasting a coffee to a dark roast level removes any sense of its terroir.
