Xenia Roastery Happened Naturally, Kind of
Hello, I’m Justin McLaughlin — Founder and Head Roaster of Xenia Roastery. I love to roast coffee that tastes delicious and makes people feel good!
Why start Xenia? Xenia was born from two things: curiosity and passion. I was curious to know what makes good coffee. I wanted to know what makes coffee at some places taste better than coffee at other places. I got educated in the basics of coffee and roast profiling, then I fell in love with roasting and specialty coffee beans. My passion for entrepreneurship led me to start Xenia Roastery.
I want to share my love for coffee, my craft of roast profiling, and my passion for entrepreneurship with the world; Xenia is my vehicle to share.
Go Yourself & Find The Bean - Direct Trade
Roasting is half of it. The other is the bean. In 2019, I met a certified Q-Grader (a coffee expert) obsessed with travel and just as crazy about finding beans as I was about roasting them.
Xenia Roastery’s specialty coffees come from high-altitude micro plot farms, with vibrant flavors, complex aromas, and soul. Cash goes to the farmer. It's trade done right.
Here's a summary:
- Direct Trade
- Single Origin, Specialty coffee
- From Micro Plots, Organically Farmed
I’m roasting with one-of-a-kind specialty coffee certified by a Q-Grader. I roast until I get it right. Then I ship it fresh out of the roaster.
Xenia Roastery Helps Young Entrepreneurs
Ok, so getting this roastery going was hard. I said it was natural, and that’s true. But nearly everything else besides roasting was a challenge.
That’s why Xenia Roastery partners locally with Everyday Entrepreneur Venture Fund to help good people with awesome ideas build successful businesses.
By the way…
