Changing coffee, together.

Bay Area CoRoasters (CoRo) is a collaborative coffee roasting facility that supports a community of roasting professionals, artisans, and enthusiasts by providing education, technical knowledge, and equipment.

Whether you’re an existing coffee company looking to increase your roasting capacity, you’re looking to jumpstart a new coffee business, or simply appreciate your cup of coffee in a new way, stop by and join our coffee community.




We’re breaking down conventional coffee roasting barriers.

You don’t need to break the bank to start a coffee company. CoRo’s collaborative roasting facility offers the tools and professional training needed to roast, package, source, and sell coffee. Our diverse membership includes commercial roasters with established reputations, roasters jump-starting new brands, and home roasters taking the next step.
