How We Got Started
The Kaffeeklatsch first opened its doors to coffee lovers on May 17, 1976. Our business was patterned after the San Francisco coffee houses Grant and Kathryn visited while living in California. After a year of business, they decided to roast coffee beans on site, insuring absolute control over freshness and quality. The vintage 1929 Jabez Burns No. 7 Roaster, still used daily, was brought in from New Orleans and Grant began roasting for a growing number of satisfied customers. Since November 1977, we’ve enticed passersby with the aroma of our freshly roasted coffee. Our Master Roaster, Grant, has over 46 years of experience.
Our purpose is to provide the finest freshly roasted specialty coffee available and to offer a wide selection of premium loose-leaf teas sourced from around the world. We strive to educate ourselves continually so we can share knowledge with our customers, offer great service and share our love of coffees and teas.
Owners Grant and Kathryn Heath, as well as the rest of the crew, sample all coffees and teas purchased by The Kaffeeklatsch to make sure they are of the highest quality and value. We strive to provide the best products with courteous and friendly service reflecting the values of a locally owned and operated business.
Our current in-store crew includes Grant, Joanna, Katie, Amanda, Paron, Diana and Anna Ruth. We’re here to help you find that next great cup of coffee!
