    What Storyville does:

    Storyville is a local specialty coffee roaster with cafe locations at Pike Place Market, 1st and Madison, Queen Anne, and a roasting studio on Bainbridge Island.  Storyville was founded in 2006 as a e-commerce coffee roaster and has blossomed into a diverse coffee company offering immaculate coffee hardware including warming kettles, burr grinders, and coffee presses.

    Why we like Storyville:

    The Storyville roasting approach is extremely simple and the their restraint is uncommon in the roasting world.   They offer two roasts only:  the Prologue and the Epilogue.   The Prologue is full bodied, low acid offering and the Epilogue is their decaffeinated version.   One of the key elements to the signature Storyville process is their dedication to offering roast-to-ship beans on the same day.

    Five things you should know about Storyville:

    1. Storyville has provided coffee to all treatment winners at every single MFG race this year.
    2. Storyville will roast and ship fresh coffee to you on the same day.
    3. This burr grinder is a work of art.
    4. Storyville’s roasting studio is on Bainbridge Island and is open M-F 8am-5pm.
    5. You can connect with Storyville at multiple locations around Seattle:  Pike Place, Queen Anne, and 1st and Madison.
