As you have probably noticed by now from my recent posts, I have a special place in my heart for locally roasted, fair trade, organic coffee. So you can imagine my excitement when I recently discovered a local micro roaster located right here in the Triangle! Allow me to introduce you to Boogie Bean Coffee Roasters of Holly Springs.
About Boogie Bean Coffee Roasters
The husband and wife team Kevin and Ali operate Boogie Bean Coffee Roasters, a small batch coffee roasting company in Holly Springs, NC. Their passion for coffee started several years ago when they began purchasing specialty local roasted coffee here in North Carolina and found that their coffee drinking experience was unbelievably better than when they used grocery store brands. As frequent customers of local coffee shops, over the past two years they have have developed a close relationship with owner of Java Jive Coffee shop in Cary on Kildaire Farm Road.
When the owner of Java Jive mentioned to Kevin that some of their customers were roasting their own coffee at home he got the idea to try it himself. Kevin went home and purchased a tiny home roaster on Ebay and started buying green coffee beans from Java Jive. Sharing his home roasted beans with friends soon lead to people asking if they could pay for some his home roasted coffee and with that the Boogie Bean Coffee Roasters business was born!
Since forming the company Boogie Bean has purchased two more drum roasters to meet the demand for their coffee. You can now purchase their coffee in several retail stores, coffee shops, & restaurants in the Triangle area including:
- Sugar Buzz Bakery & Cafe ~ Cary, NC
- Southern Roast Coffee Company ~ Holly Springs, NC
- Village Market ~ Raleigh, NC
- The Cary Farmers’ Market (Every Saturday Starting April 7th)
You can also order Boogie Bean coffee from their website and have it shipped directly to your door. Shipping is just a flat $5.00 for any order under 5 lbs of coffee with FREE shipping on any order of 5 lbs of coffee or more. Their coffee inventory includes a wide variety of coffees to meet every coffee lovers taste. They always “roast to order” to ensure maximum freshness for their customers.
I am very excited to see the Triangle’s coffee scene continue to grow with quality local roasters and I look forward to trying the many roasts Boogie Beans offers. If you have a favorite let me know!
