8 WV Coffee Roasts to add to your online cart
Each winter season we are faced with cold mornings and busy days. The best way to beat the chill and make it through a packed work day is to sip on a fresh cup of joe. Better yet, make that a cup of coffee roasted and preapred by West Virginia’s finest and shipped straight to your door!
Check out these 8 Mountain State coffee roasts you can try from the comfort of your home:
1. Aroma of the Andes
The beans from Aroma of the Andes are grown on a family farm in Colombia and roasted back home in Linn. The Brown family’s hands-on involvement in the growing, harvesting, drying and processing of the beans assures you’ll be sipping a high-quality, environmentally friendly coffee. Try the signature Supatá blend, a mixture of light, medium, dark and espresso roast with notes of chocolate, mild smoke, tangerine, brown sugar and cherry.

2. Black Dog Coffee Company
The distinctive label on each Black Dog Coffee Company bag is a tribute to two furry honorary CEOs: the late, great Bear and the current dog-in-residence, Java. This Eastern Panhandle company procures its high-quality beans from around the world and roasts them in small batches in the Plutonius, a vintage 1931 Jabez Burns & Sons machine. Try their signature DogWatch Dark Blend, a smoky chocolate with earth notes balanced by sweet undertones and a smooth, full body.

The Beckley shop serves up freshly roasted coffees as well as fruit smoothies and hand-dipped ice cream at the space it shares with Mountain State Miniature Golf and Outside-In Climbing Gym. A fan favorite is the Black Bear, a robust-flavored blend of medium-roast African coffees and darker roast South American beans.

6. Mountain Roaster
A trip to Costa Rica and a taste of the fresh-roasted local coffee there was all it took to persuade the owners of Mountain Roaster to begin importing and roasting their own beans. The Buckhannon company sources its beans from around the globe with an emphasis on fair trade and organic farms. Try the single-origin coffee that served as inspiration: the medium-roast Costa Rica, with notes of toffee, caramel, apple and berry.
