As you know, Mozart’s is known for many things, one being that we roast our coffee in house. On any given day that you step foot on our lakeside abode, you will find the original roaster in the roasting room right outside our front doors!
What you probably didn’t know is where we keep all of our green beans. First of all, green beans aren’t the ones you eat for dinner. What we mean by green beans are the coffee beans we have that are in their natural state aka before roasting.
Our Head Roaster, Jack Ranstrom, takes a trip to our off-site storage unit 3 TIMES A WEEK to pick up fresh green beans! That’s a lot of coffee. Jack says, “In storage we keep about three months worth of coffee which is 10,000 Green pounds that I have to personally inventory batch out of and re-load every few weeks.”

Since we are a small batch roastery, we roast about 20 pound batches at a time. This turns out to about 16-17 pounds of roasted coffee when it’s all said and done.
We may be small, but we sure are mighty! Be sure to stop by sometime and check out our roasting room. You may even get lucky and see the fresh smoke evaporating from the room followed by a smoky, flavorful smell.
