About Unrest Coffee
Unrest was looking for something different, something unique and fire roasting the beans gave us exactly what we were looking for.
We have always loved coffee but we were tired of the same old blends and roasts and wanted to try something different, something unique. We starting testing out roasting and actually roasted the very first batch of Unrest Coffee in a wood stove. That first batch, though it needed a lot of work, was the beginning of an idea, of that unique taste we were looking for.
Roasting beans by wood fire required a special roaster which we designed and built by hand. We recently finished building our largest roaster so far for Unrest Coffee increasing our roasting capacity by roughly 75%. Beans are truly roasted in small batches of around 15lbs at a time which allows us to truly focus all attention on each batch, making sure it is perfect every time.
In 2016, Unrest Coffee was awarded with DownEast Magazine's BEST OF award for the best coffee roaster in the state of Maine.
