We're human- all in need of energy, encouragement, esteem, and endurance. Flatlands Coffee combines tradition and innovation to craft taste and flavor that is surprisingly complex, balanced, and naturally sweet. We're quality-driven because we genuinely care about you.
We started by tasting several hundred coffees and countless roasters each year, since we opened as an extreme multi-roaster coffee shop. This meant we became more familiar than most, with what we think the best coffees, importers, and roasting styles are (see some of our favorites here).
Now we find those 'tastiest' coffees across several importers and roast to our more Nordic-style preference. Such light roasts preserve the coffees' natural organic acids (making your coffee more vibrant and complex), natural occurring sucrose (making your coffee sweeter), and natural volatile aromatic compounds (causing more unique and distinct flavor).
Being quality-driven, we’re meticulous in every detail: from our roaster, to our shop's grinders, espresso machine, and water filtration system; it’s all purposeful... not to mention our outstanding team! Each team member is carefully selected and undergoes intensive training. We then coach each other into leadership, as we all work toward continual pursuit of perfection.
Our coffee shop is designed to reflect our value of quality and be a relaxing and enjoyable space. Cassy Vollmar is one of the owners and a fantastic interior designer, who excelled with the design of our space– see more of her work here, or read about our coffee shop here.
