Switchback Coffee Roasters Best Of

Best Of 2014: Local Coffee Roaster

SwitchBack started out in a small house on the west side, but moved a little less than a year ago to its new Institute Street location. It's also moved from second place in this category last year to first this year. Nate Bland, co-owner with Brandon DelGrosso, says, "We roast around eight pounds at a time in an air roaster, because in small batches you have more control." SwitchBack also offers classes covering different brewing methods and home roasting. "We sell the raw beans, too, and you can try roasting it at home with a popcorn popper," he says. "We're not closed off; our goal is to be friendly and open. We love to develop relationships and collaborate, and I'm always happy to talk about coffee." — Kendall Kullman
