Non-Profit Fundraising Blends: $5 of Each Bag Supports the Represented Non-Profit!


At Erie Coffee Roasters, we believe in sustainability and ethical sourcing. We believe the people that do the intensive work of growing, harvesting, and processing the beans we use in our coffees should be well-compensated for their hard work and high quality beans.  We also believe in using only the highest quality coffee beans in our roasts, and the finest tea leaves for our teas.  That's why all of our coffee beans and teas are Direct Trade, giving the farmers and their families the best price for their harvests.  

When possible, we will include the crop owner/farmer's name for each product we sell. We will also post additional information about the region and farmers online. We feel it gives us a personal -connection to the hardworking folks giving us our joy in a cup.

July 31, 2017

So there you are with your freshly roasted coffee beans, your new burr grinder, and your favorite mug. But suddenly, you panic; "Why does my grinder have 15+ grind settings on it?!

There are a handful of factors that can mess up the taste of your incredible coffee once you've gotten it home: type of water used, grinder type, grind size, water temperature, storage, just to name a few.  Here we'll take a look at grind size... The main idea behind grind size is based on how long your coffee is in contact with water during the brewing process. The Rocky Road: Coarse...

How to Store Your Coffee: Help from the Experts

May 31, 2017

The article below is from the National Coffee Association.  For the best cup of coffee, start with quality beans and store them properly to maximize freshness and flavor. Keep beans airtight and cool Your beans’ greatest enemies are air, moisture, heat, and light. To preserve your beans’ fresh roasted flavor as long as possible, store them in an opaque, air-tight container at room temperature. Coffee beans can be beautiful, but avoid clear canisters which will allow light to compromise the taste of your coffee.  Keep your beans in a dark and cool location. A cabinet near the oven is often too warm, and so is a spot on the kitchen counter that gets strong afternoon sun. Coffee's retail packaging is generally not ideal for...

New Partnership with Coal Creek Meals on Wheels

May 29, 2017

Since our inception as a Wholesale Coffee Roaster, we have wanted to make sure that we were not only financially supporting our coffee farmers via Direct Trade, but also giving back to our local community.   From the very beginning, we have searched for ways to help others with our product.  As any small business owner understands, money is incredibly tight...you see red more than black numbers, you don't pay yourself a salary, you barely squeak by paying your bills on time, and the like. While this has also been the case for Nate and I at Erie Coffee Roasters, it hasn't stopped us from making a difference. We have always said, "We don't have money to donate, but we have...

May 29, 2017

Day in and day out, many of us, after brewing up that delicious cup, pot, or vat of coffee, end up throwing away our used coffee grounds or old tea bags.  Do you have a flower or vegetable garden?  Do you love your shrubs?  Playing with the idea of composting? Why not give new life to those used coffee grounds and tea leaves and use them as compost or a natural fertilizer for your garden.  Now you AND your plants can start your day with a caffeinated smile on your faces ;-) According to Sunset magazine, by tilling in your used grounds 6-to-8 inches below soil surface, you will increase the amounts of phosphorous, magnesium, copper, and potassium available for...
