Copper Horse Coffee, October 2014

Copper Horse Coffee - Ithaca, NY

Watching dreams come to life is a powerful experience. As we are watching our dreams come true in the form of, this month's featured roaster is also watching their dreams come true.

Copper Horse Coffee in Ithaca, NY recently completed their successful Kickstarter campaign and raised over $13,000 to turn their dream of sharing "the simple fun of great coffee" into a reality. We were impressed not only by their passion, but also their award winning roaster, Jesse Harriott. Jesse made a name for himself in Louisville and before Copper Horse was roasting at Sunergos Coffee.

Copper Horse takes multiple measures to make sure you get an amazing coffee experience. Here is a glimpse into their process in an excerpt from their website...

The Roaster

Copper Horse Coffee has an amazing story that can best be explained by their Kickstarter video, but here is also an excerpt of the description on their website...

Roasting coffee is part art and part science. We stay focused in method and creative in our approach. Oh and love - there’s lots and lots of love. Our coffees are roasted in 10-20 pound batches, hand-sorted before and after roasting, and hand-packaged in hand-stamped bags.

We want to share the simple fun of our good coffee with you, and we hope you’ll share it with your family and friends. A little sharing goes a long way - and like the namesake copper horse weathervane, it never goes out of style.
