Behind the scenes: tour The Roasterie

Put barbeque, jazz and The Roasterie tour on your must-do list when you’re in Kansas City!

We go to great lengths to bring you the best coffee in the world. And nobody does it like we do. Come by for a tour and learn all about our cupping, roasting and blending processes. You'll learn about the history of the company, get a behind the scenes look at the factory and experience a manual coffee brewing demonstration along with a Q&A. Tours are wheelchair and stroller friendly. Guests of all ages are permitted on the tours, but when we're roasting the factory can be quite loud. It's important to stay in a group with your tour guide due to the extreme temperatures of the roasters. 

Please pay and register here before arriving for the tour, though walk-ins are accepted based on availability. Registering will help keep tours small enough so that everyone can sample coffee at the end.
