Green, unroasted coffee beans come in large jute sacks. After a day of roasting, we’re left with a pile of empty coffee sacks. What do we do with those leftover sacks you ask? We trade them for flowers of course.
Farm Girls Flowers is a Bay Area flower company that delivers its flowers by bicycle. They use the coffee sacks to wrap their flower arrangements.
We started putting cold brew coffee in kegs. Try a cup over ice at the Grand Lake Farmers Market.
Our socks are 70% Merino wool, 25% Nylon, and 5% Lycra. Not too high, not too low. Not too thick, not too thin. Made in the USA.
These are the type of socks that you look forward to putting on in the morning. Plus, you can wear them multiple days in a row and they won’t get too gnarly.

MASH Transit came out with a nice looking mug. Order now and you can get a bag of Bicycle Coffee with it. Not a bad gift.
Watch this short film about coffee. It’s well worth your time.
Our new utility carts are up and running. You can check them out at the Grand Lake Farmers Market every Saturday in Oakland.
We use them for delivering bags of coffee and they can be transformed into mobile brewing stations.
My brother Matt designed and built them.
Last month we served coffee at Pedal Fest in Oakland. It was a good time. I’m sure we’ll be back next year.
Here are some photos.
My mom and dad usually spend their days taking people out horseback riding on their small ranch in Washington state, but recently they’ve started roasting coffee.
Using some of Bicycle Coffee’s old roasting equipment, my dad converted a barbecue into a small batch roaster. Last weekend my wife and I roasted a few batches with my folks. It was great to roast coffee in the open air with Mount Rainier in the background.
They’re currently roasting an Arabica bean from Bolivia and each batch is getting better. Washington is a little too far for us to bike, so if you’re up north and looking for some good coffee, maybe you can hassle my old man for some beans. But don’t be surprised if you end up on the back of a horse.
