OVER 30 YEARS OF SMART, SUSTAINABLE, EXCEPTIONAL COFFEE IN YOUR CUP
In the remote highlands of 9th century Abyssinia, now Ethiopia, a lone goatherd named Kaldi noticed his goats were full of energy–dancing and prancing, after eating a small red fruit from a nearby shrub. Not wishing to be left out of the fun, he tried the cherries, and soon he was dancing too. According to legend, Kaldi and his goats had discovered coffee.
In 1988, we opened Dancing Goats® Coffee Bar in Olympia, Washington, serving locally roasted Batdorf & Bronson® coffee. A few years later, the two beloved Olympia institutions merged, paving the way for decades of innovation in the quest to create great coffee.
It is a long road from Abyssinia to your cup, but we are glad to be on that journey with you.
FROM FARMING TO ROASTING TO YOUR CUP: MAKING HIGH-IMPACT COFFEE FOR YOU
We want to do more than make the best coffee. We want to make it the right way.Growing.
We have been building direct relationships with coffee farmers long before phrases like “Direct Trade” had any buzz. We are proud to have decades-long relationships with many of our coffee producers around the globe, promoting sustainable, environmentally friendly processes that result in the best beans.
Our growing partners are the best at what they do. The cherries are picked at peak ripeness, milled, sorted, and shipped globally.
Our artisan roasters only begin roasting your beans after you have placed your order, providing maximum freshness for every order and assuring you have the best cup of coffee possible.
All staff receive in-depth training from our award-winning coffee instructors. Our baristas spend several months training before they are certified to use the espresso machines and instructed on the right way to make your drink.
We put a lot into our coffee. At every step of the way, we want it to be perfect when it hits your cup.
