A concoction as critical to an economy’s success as coffee should be taken seriously. Roots Roasting’s passionate team of coffee lovers understands the importance of process—from the beans to the cup. Their beans are expertly roasted in-house and they sell a selection of six roasts, all crafted with the earth and community in mind. From using a low-emmission water scrubbing technique and compostable cups, to donating a portion of profits to ending slavery and trafficking, Roots Roasting’s shop has made itself the Twin Cities’ best for swinging in for a taste or asking the famously kind team any questions you have. They opened a roastery to have a relationship with the community, after all.
