Whole Bean Coffee
Your Coffee Goal
…imagine taking a few minutes out of your hectic life for a soul satisfyingly smooth cup of coffee.
You might be in your car, at work, or at home, but this time is for you, when your mind calms, your breath steadies, you relax, and say,
“Ahhhh… that’s good. That’s reeeeal good”. It’s almost like the worries of life recede and your world shrinks to just you and that cup of coffee.
And for a few minutes, everything seems to be in place.
Our Coffee Goal
Believe it or not, specialty coffee was not invented in Seattle. Actually, your Great-Grandmother, as well as ours, roasted her own coffee at home every week. Because her coffee was so fresh, it was super smooth, without a hint of bitterness.
At Lake City Coffee, Alisha and I (Russell) don’t expect you to take the time and effort to roast your own coffee every week, so we do it for you.
Our Coffee Goal is to make Lake City Coffee to be not just the best Spokane Coffee Roaster and Coeur d’Alene Coffee Roaster in town, but to be your coffee roaster, regardless of where you live.
Smoothest Brewed Coffee
Like your Great-grandmother, Alisha and I love smooth coffee. We don’t want to taste the roaster. Wouldn’t it be much better to taste all the naturally sweet subtle flavors that God put into that bean?
If you’re just looking for a caffeine jolt, then go buy Charbucks. But if you want the best soul satisfyingly smooth home brewed coffee experience of your life, then you’re in the right place.
If smooth, real flavored coffee is your game, then we’re your coach. We’ll buy the beans and roast them fresh just for you. Then we’ll teach you how to brew a cup of coffee worthy of your Great-grandmother.
Smoothest Coffee Beans
I’ve tried coffee from just about every coffee growing country in the world. And when it comes to the smoothest coffee (non-bitter) with a variety of flavors, I absolutely love Costa Rican coffee.
These beans are high altitude, shade grown, hand picked, mountain water washed, sun dried, and carefully hand sorted by small, single-source, Costa Rican, farmers.
Costa Rica Tarrazu is our only source of beans. That’s right. With only 1 bean, all you have to do is choose your roast.
- Delectable Dark
- Majestic Medium
- White Lightning
- Delectable Decaf – Swiss Water Processed – Medium Roast
Old Fashion Roasted Coffee
Large industrial coffee roasters burn the snot out of their beans by roasting hot-n-fast.
That’s why, I roast the old fashion way; low-n-slow; gently bringing the beans to a beautiful light, medium, or barely-dark color.
This low-n-slow method preserves as much of the bean’s natural oils as possible, giving your beans a rich, super smooth, and naturally sweet flavor with prominent notes of chocolate and nut.
How Fresh is “Fresh Roasted Coffee”
Here’s a little known fact. All roasted coffee starts going stale in about a month and no amount of space age packaging can change that fact.
Unfortunately, a vast majority of the coffee sold in the U.S. has been sitting in warehouses or on store shelves for months if not years.
In contrast, we measure freshness in hours, not months. From our roaster to your table in 24-72 hours.
If you buy 3 bags (with free shipping) you probably want that 3rd bag to taste nearly as good as the first bag, then read this article “How To Keep Coffee Beans Fresh“.
Spokane Coffee Roaster
Just like your town, there are a ton of coffee shops in Spokane Washington. And guess what? All but one of them serve up coffee that I wouldn’t feed to a pig. You can do better at home; much better.
Picking the right beans and roasting them to perfection is only 50% of the equation. The other 50% is in the brewing.
Alisha and I will teach you how to brew up a cup of coffee that your Great-Grandmother would be proud of.
Coeur d’Alene Coffee Roaster
When we moved to Coeur d’Alene Idaho, we thought most of our customers would come from Coeur d’Alene. They didn’t.
Today, 95% of our business gets shipped to customers all over the United States. Just last week we shipped to: Spokane WA, Bellevue NE, Bronxville NY, Henderson NV, Clancy MT, McLean VA, Georgetown TX, Sellersville PA, Taylorville, IL, Brooklyn MN, Gillette WY, Lebanon OR; just to name a few.
Originally our goal was to be know as the best Spokane Coffee Roaster or Coeur d’Alene Coffee Roaster. Today, our goal is to just be your coffee roaster.
Conservative Coffee Company – Conservative Coffee Roasters
Like you, we’re just hard working Americans trying to make a living by providing the freshest and smoothest coffee that you’re likely to find anywhere.
We’re not trying to be political and we’re not trying to cram our world view down anyone’s throat. Yet we’re not hiding our light under a basket either.
Years ago, Screwgle didn’t like some of my conservative leaning satirical blog posts. So, in order to punish us, and unbeknownst to us, Screwgle tagged me as a conservative coffee roaster and ranked Lake City Coffee as a conservative coffee company.
Guess what? Instead of killing our business, as they had hoped, our sales increased substantially. “Thank you Screwgle”!
