From The Roaster
ABOUT RAILWAY COFFEE
We believe coffee has the ability to bring people together, to inspire creativity, and to comfort, so we carefully craft each roast to bring out the best flavors of each bean we roast. We are paving the way to specialty coffee in North Louisiana by giving people access to fresh, high quality, locally roasted beans that they’ve never experienced before.
Our story is simple: we wanted better coffee. For far too long we were stuck drinking mediocre coffee. Honestly, it was little more than brown water.
We started roasting coffee at home for our personal enjoyment and were exposed to this new world of specialty, craft coffee. We loved learning about the farmers, how beans carry different qualities depending on where and how they were grown, and how only a few seconds or a few degrees during the roast can make the difference between a delectable drink and a burnt nightmare.
After several months of experimenting at home, we decided to jump headfirst into the world of specialty coffee, and Railway Coffee was born. Since then we've been working hard to source responsibly and ethically grown beans, roast them in small batches to bring out the best flavors, and bring them to you, the coffee drinker.
WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE
Our hope is to grow a local, regional, and national community of loyal Railway Coffee drinkers by cultivating relationships on every level of coffee production, from seed to cup. There's more to our beans than your morning cup of coffee, and to emphasis that, we partner with unique individuals and businesses to create a variety of delectable treats like cupcakes, beer, cocktails, and frozen yogurt, just to name a few.
Specialty coffee is relatively new in North Louisiana, but it is quickly trending upward. As a college town, Ruston could possibly be the center of the coffee revolution in our area, and we're happy to be the first specialty coffee roaster here. We love exposing regular coffee drinkers to the world of specialty coffee and forming long-term relationships with them through great coffee.
