Free Coffee & Roasting Demos - Hawthorne Coffee Roasting

Milwaukee Food & City Tours is thrilled to share that we have partnered with a local entrepreneur to bring high-quality, handcrafted coffee and espresso to Milwaukee. The name is Hawthorne Coffee Roasters. If you haven't already, would you give the fanpage page a LIKE?

As reported in the Milwaukee Business Journal,

"The former vice president of Stone Creek Coffee Roasters, Steve Hawthorne, has launched his own wholesale coffee company along with the co-owner of Milwaukee Food & City Tours. Hawthorne and partner Wade Nemetz have been working on the concept of Hawthorne Coffee Roasters for more than a year. They’re working out of 1,000 square feet in West Allis."

"The focus is high-end, small-batch coffee with unique flavors, Hawthorne said. The company is looking to work with restaurants, cafes, specialty grocers and other businesses and is close to signing a few deals, he said. It also is selling beans online. To start, it has four single-origin coffees available and one espresso blend."
