At Basalt Roasters it is our intention to contribute to our community in a flavorful and enduring way. Joshua’s great, great grandfather, David Guilland, owned Guilland House, the first building moved from Yakima City to North Yakima. While we don’t have the same concerns about armed opposition or the logistics of serving customers while rolling on logs, we do feel a part of the current regeneration of Yakima - and that is another big move for us all.
We currently small batch roast fewer than two hundred pounds of coffee each week. Our goal is to participate meaningfully in the cultivation of economic sustainability both at the local level and in the global coffee community. By working to develop deep connections and lasting relationships with producers and importers it is our hope that we're respecting and supporting the lives and work of communities whose success, like Yakima's, depends on the sale of each year's crop. Sourced sustainably, roasted locally.
Welcome to Basalt Roasters.
