Our Coffee Story
At Galena Roasters we love coffee as much as we love our beautiful little town. Our love affair has grown since launching our roasting business in 2018 above The Grateful Gourmet Co., downtown Galena.
The motivation behind our coffee is simple: uncompromising quality. We are a small batch specialty coffee roasting company aiming to bring people an exceptional coffee experience.
We begin with some of the best green coffees from Central and South America, Africa and Indonesia. We roast our coffee to the ideal profile, developing the complex flavors of each coffee and revealing the delicate tasting notes. The coffees are then cupped in the lab and must meet our standards before reaching our customers. We believe that starting with quality green coffee is essential to creating the roasted coffee we sell—from the source to the final cup. We love what we do and want to share it with you.
Take a seat, let it cool a little, and enjoy the quality offered in Galena Roasters coffee.
