Spokane Coffee Roaster
Alisha and I (Russell) have a passion for creating coffee just like our Great-Grandmother did; smooth as silk, super fresh, divinely tasteful. Once we perfected Great-Grandmother’s coffee, we started Lake City Coffee with the goal to be the best Spokane Coffee Roaster and Coeur d’Alene Coffee Roaster.
But when you have a fresh, hand-made, product that’s unique and second to none, literally, the world becomes your oyster. Today 95% of our fresh roasted whole bean coffee gets shipped all over the United States to folks just like you.
Real Specialty Coffee
Believe it or not, specialty coffee was not invented in Seattle. Actually, it was your Great-Grandmother who invented “specialty coffee”. That is to say, she roasted and brewed one mean cup of coffee.
At Lake City Coffee, Alisha and I have a passion to help you to brew coffee every bit as well as your do Great-Grandmother did.
Not only will we buy the smoothest beans available anywhere, but we’ll also roast them to perfection, have them delivered to your table as fast as humanly possible; and we’ll help teach you how to brew one mean cup of coffee.
Best Coffee Experience Of Your Life
What do I mean by “The best coffee experience of your life?” …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. That’s what we want for you.
Smoothest Coffee Brewing
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. And here’s how we do it.
If you’re just looking for a caffeine jolt, then 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.
The World’s 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, especially from the Don Roberto plantations in Tarrazu.
These beans are high altitude, shade grown, hand picked, mountain water washed, sun dried, and carefully sorted by small, single-source, Costa Rican, farmers.
Costa Rica Tarrazu Don Roberto is our only source of beans.
Each year, we attempt to purchase enough beans to satisfy all of our customers for the entire year. Since green beans can last for years, you can be assured that your roasted coffee will be super smooth.
Fresh Roasted Whole Bean Coffee
I hate burnt coffee. But I love Fresh Roasted Whole Bean Coffee that’s smooth as silk and full flavored.
That’s why, I roast the old fashion way; low and 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 our beans a rich, super smooth, and naturally sweet flavor with prominent notes of dark chocolate and nut.
How Fresh is “Fresh”
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 marketed in the US 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 to last you a month or two and you want that 3rd bag to taste nearly as good as the first bag, then read this article “Keep Beans Fresh“.
Passionate Home Brewed Coffee
I drink coffee everywhere I go; 5 star hotels; gourmet restaurants; specialty coffee shops, etc.
And guess who consistently makes the best coffee? You, me, and your Great-Grandmother.
Picking the right beans and roasting them to perfection is only 50% of the equation. The other 50% is in the brewing.
And we 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 a Spokane Coffee Roaster or Coeur d’Alene Coffee Roaster. Today, our goal is to just be your coffee roaster.
Conservative Coffee Company
There is a growing percentage of coffee drinkers that are no longer willing to accept burnt beans, bitter taste, and the political and cultural agenda of the large industrial coffee companies being shoved down our throat.
You won’t find that here; not on my website; and certainly not in my company. If you just want a feel good kitty-cat and a Coke, then you wont’ like it here. But if you’re looking to be served up the straight scoop, no BS truth, then you’re in the right place with the right people.
And if you’re a hard-core liberal, then GOOD FOR YOU. Stand up for what you believe, don’t hide it and don’t sugar coat it. As long as you’re drinking our coffee, then you too are welcome here, just as much as anyone else.
