Coffee cup

Welcome to Asheville's premier craft roaster of Specialty Coffee

  • Mountain City is a micro-roaster of specialty coffee. We roast coffee the old-fashioned way and place the Fresh-Roast® date on the bag so you know when your coffee was roasted.

  • We sell to everyone at the same low price. Our prices are posted on-line -- you don't have to log in or have an account to see them. (read more ....)

  • ~ We buy pretty good beans and roast them as well as we can ~

Please take a moment this week to be thankful for what you have. Times could be worse.

Need a new coffee maker? Check out the ones certified by the Specialty Coffee Association. If you don't want to or have the time to make a single-cup pourover or a French press, you won't go far wrong with one of these.


I'm leaving up this reminder to use enough coffee in your coffee. There's nothing more frightening than a weak cup of coffee. The note on the wall says "use ... a heaping tablespoon for each cup". This ad from the Pan-American Coffee Bureau was one of many in which they urged Americans to make stronger coffee.
