About this project
Beagle Coffee Company is a coffee lab starting up in Fort Collins, CO dedicated to pursuing the best in coffee roasting, education, and equipment development.
Our sample roasters are designed to offer as much control over gas flow, rate of rise, and air flow as large scale commercial roasters. Each one is carefully hand built and tested.
The funding for our project will primarily go towards our warehouse build out. We will be using the facility to assemble our sample roasters, roast the coffee for our prize packs, and begin exploration into future projects.
Previously Beagle Brews Coffee, Beagle Coffee Company made its first appearance at the Valparaiso Farmer’s Market as a small project led by Derrick Wessels. Every week since then has seen change for our small batch roaster, with each change pushing what we do to the next level.
Now located in Fort Collins, this constant push to improve has evolved Beagle Coffee Company into what it is today—an honest search to not only craft the perfect cup of coffee, but to catalogue our progress and findings so that others can do the same. Through the combined efforts of a coffee geek and a bio-chem researcher, we aim to solve the problems and questions we see arising within the coffee industry.
Our name is derived from a love for Beagles - for the past two decades, there has always been at least one beagle in the Wessels household. When Derrick and his father David started home brewing beer, many of their batches took on the names of their pups. The two dubbed the effort Beagle Brews Beer, and Derrick adopted and evolved the name and operation to what you see today.
Things are just beginning for us as we take our first steps into research and development, and we couldn’t be more excited. As you look through our site, we hope to provide an experience with coffee as invigorating as our team's adventure has been so far.
So much appreciation to all of our backers, to Samuel Johnson for his incredible video work, and to Brooks Bankord for his wonderful branding and logo work.
Risks and challenges
Post funding, our reward distribution timeline will be contingent upon how long our warehouse build out takes. After the build out we'll finalize our licensing and start shipping! We ask that you hang with us and we'll keep everyone posted on how things progress!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
