This blend is named for The Roasterie founder Danny O’Neill. Danny is the Bean Baron at The Roasterie. He started the company in November 1993 in the basement of his home in Kansas City’s Brookside neighborhood.
But it really all began in Costa Rica, where Danny was an exchange student his last year of high school. While visiting, he spent several weeks picking coffee beans, and that was when his passion for coffee ignited. Since then, Danny has made hundreds of trips touring different segments of the coffee industry and finding premier coffee bean estates.
Danny has become a sought-after expert in the ever-growing coffee industry. He has judged cupping and barista competitions all around the world since 1995. In April 2001, he was awarded Super Taster status on the Specialty Coffee Institute Sensory Aptitude Test. He uses his super taste buds to help create many of our blends, including this one.
