Roastery

"Coffee roasting” is not new, but the term “roastery” is newly popular. What was once called a “coffeehouse” or a “coffee shop” has often been replaced with the word “roastery.”

‘Roastery” has been cited in print since at least 1989 and possibly originated in San Francisco (CA).


Wikipedia: Coffee roasting
Roasting coffee transforms the chemical and physical properties of green coffee beans into roasted coffee products. The roasting process is what produces the characteristic flavor of coffee by causing the green coffee beans to expand and to change in color, taste, smell, and density. Unroasted beans contain similar acids, protein, and caffeine as those that have been roasted, but lack the taste. It takes heat to speed up the Maillard and other chemical reactions that develop and enhance the flavour.

As green coffee is more stable than roasted, the roasting process tends to take place close to where it will be consumed. This reduces the time that roasted coffee spends in distribution, helping to maximize its shelf life. The vast majority of coffee is roasted commercially on a large scale, but some coffee drinkers roast coffee themselves in order to have more control over the freshness and flavour profile of the beans.

2 January 1940, New York (NY) Times, pg. L58:
“During the year the cooperatives also opened two feed mills and one flour mill, a coffee roastery and four commercial fertilizer factories.”

Here are Bay Area roasteries that let you watch and sample

Since coffee first arrived, as cargo on ships carrying gold miners, San Franciscans have taken to the drink with enthusiasm and expertise. Recognizing a sure market in the prospectors, entrepreneurs Jim Folger, Austin and Reuben Hills, and M.J. Brandenstein set up small roasters. They were able to establish a standard of quality by insisting on good arabica beans (as opposed to lower-quality robusta) from Latin America.

Today the Bay Area is in the midst of a new coffee-roasting boom, with custom roasteries springing up everywhere.

It is Ahrre’s Coffee Roastery at the Common Ground Cafe, near the Summit train station.

21 January 1998, New York (NY) Times, “What They Decant For Breakfast In Napa Wine Country” by Suzanne Hamlin, pg. F3:
CALISTOGA ROASTERY is on the main street of Calistoga, Calif., a Napa Valley town best known for its geyser, mud baths and proximity to world-class wineries. But some people think this little coffee house is really Calistoga’s main claim to fame.

For good strong coffee and baked goods, try the Prince George Espresso and Roastery, (757) 220-6670.
