Method Coffee Roasters officially began in early 2013, however its roots were planted long before. The concept of sourcing, roasting and serving coffee for the community came from the founders' shared interest in the the economics of impact and... of course coffee. MCR is the adventure that we all embark on to become a better self.
In a garage in 2013 some friends setup a coffee roaster with the idea to start a coffee company. Their goal was to honestly-source amazing coffees, prepare it with passion and serve the community. Since then MCR has grown to serve the greater Rocky Mountain area and give back to the community through scholarship funds, non-profit partners and direct donations.
The core of MCR is in it's roastery. This team and set of equipment supply over 40 locations in the Rocky Mountain region. Providing a better, more-transparent cup of coffee to those who seek it for their cafes. In addition to house blends, MCR serves seasonally sourced coffees that change throughout the year with the goal to connect with farmers and foster long-lasting relationship to support their crop year-over-year.
In 2017 MCR opened it's first cafe. The MCR at the LEEDs Business School @ CU Boulder (the founders' alma mater) was the launchpad for a new chapter in the company. With a location to spread the idea of better coffee in an approachable manner. The cafe's main purpose is to fund a scholarship and the cafe donates 5% of all sales to this. In addition to this cafe, MCR is currently working on opening more cafe's in Colorado, stay tuned.
