About The Roasterie Air-Roasted Coffee

The Roasterie Air-Roasted Coffee is turning platinum in 2013, serving only the world’s best coffee for the past 20 years sourced from countries with the world’s richest resources for harvesting exceptional coffee. Danny O’Neill air-roasted his first batch of beans from the basement of his Kansas City, Mo. home in the Brookside neighborhood on September 26, 1993 – and The Roasterie was born. Five months later O’Neill hired The Roasterie’s first hire, “Stormin’ Norman” Killmon, as master roaster, a position that Killmon fills still today. O’Neill opened The Roasterie’s first official production facility in July 1994 at 1519 Cherry Street in Kansas City. A year and a half later, in December 1995, The Roasterie relocated to 2601 Madison Street in Kansas City to accommodate a growing demand for its coffee.


Today, The Roasterie’s production takes place at 1204 West 27th Street in Kansas City, its home since September 2007. On September 11, 2012, the production facility was crowned with a historic DC-3 aircraft, a symbol of exploration, Kansas City’s strong aviation history, the American spirit, and the adventure of The Roasterie. A month later, in October 2012, the production facility unveiled the company’s third Roasterie Café and the Bean Hangar, a 2,350-square-foot event space featuring a dramatic, industrial-chic vibe with floor-to-ceiling windows looking into The Roasterie’s production floor. In addition to its plant café at 1204 West 27th Street, The Roasterie also operates cafés at 6223 Brookside Boulevard in Kansas City, Mo. and 4511 119th Street in Leawood, Kan.
