THE SIMPLE GOAL OF DARK HORSE COFFEE ROASTERS

Our goal is to bring you the highest quality coffee available; period. Dark Horse focuses on simplicity and displaying these incredible coffees that have been harvested on small farms in their truest form.So you won't find any fancy syrups, whipped cream, or blenders in our shops.

OUR STORY

Brothers Bryan and Daniel Charlson founded Dark Horse Coffee Roasters just about four years ago with a simple idea in mind: To serve an exceptional cup of coffee in its truest form. We wanted to focus on the basic methods of coffee brewing — Pour Over, French Press, and Cold Brew iced coffee.

We grew up on Kauai, a small island in Hawaii where we were surrounded by coffee fields and plantations, and that's certainly where our passion for coffee culture was planted. We’ve always had a fascination with good coffee and being from a tiny island, community has always been massively important to us. Next on the agenda, we needed to create the best cup of coffee, and we think that today, we’ve done that.
