Bean Lab Coffee Roasters is a micro roasting coffee company that will be starting in Denver, Colorado.

UPDATE- FULLY FUNDED!!!

Keep Backing us and Pre-Order some of the best beans you will ever have in your life. (and yes we know that sounds pretentious... but they are gonna be fantastic!)

What is this?

Bean Lab is a coffee roasting company that, with your help, will be opening this Summer in the Highlands neighborhood, Denver, Colorado.

What is going to make Bean Lab different from other coffee roasting companies?

- Bean Lab will be roasting in small, controlled, custom batches!

- Our batches will be anywhere from 6 ounces to a full pound depending on the need. That's a fraction of what a batch looks like at a commercial roaster, enabling us to perfect the roast each time and use your specific tastes as the profile for each batch.

- We will be sourcing our coffee beans from small farms all over the World.

- We want all of our clients to know everything we know about our beans and our process. We'll meet with clients on a regular basis to educate and show them how the coffee is made. The more they know, the better we can cater to individual tastes.

- We'll have a few house blends available to all, but ideally we'll be roasting on a personal level, getting to know our clients and setting up roast profiles just for them.

- We want to further develop and build Denver's coffee community. Half of that is the quality of the product, the other half is it's accessibility. Bringing people into the process of how coffee gets from the plant to their cup is a priority of ours, an experience we can provide locally.

Why me?

Bean Lab needs your help making this dream become a reality. The vision is to have people come in to our workshop, taste what we've made so far, get a feel for what they want and let us create a custom roast just for them. This, however, doesn't mean it's Denver only. You can back our project from anywhere and we'll send you some fantastic coffee as a thank you. A physical presence isn't the only way to collaborate either, we can talk to you about what you look for in a coffee and make a personal roast no matter where you're located.

By pledging money to us and becoming a backer you will help us make this all possible.

 - Sign up for an account, it’s free and only takes a minute.

 - Sign up for an Amazon account, they will handle the transaction.

 - Pick and choose a reward on the right side of the page to help us meet our goal.

If we don’t reach our goal of $1200 then you will NOT get charged any money.

Why $1200?

There is a lot of initial money that Bean Lab will need in order to get started.

Here is a rough estimate on where your money will go:

Our roasters - $650

The green coffee that we will roast - $300

Miscellaneous coffee equipment and marketing stuff - $130

Kickstarter and Amazon fees - $120

Anything above $1200 will help us grow even faster, reaching more people with knowledge about coffee while helping expand the local coffee community.
