Hi all, I'm planning to open a shop in Central Arkansas and was looking for suggestions of good roasters in the area. I'm aware of Cafe' Darte and the roasters in the Northwest but didn't know if I should be thinking about roasters closer to where I am.
Cuvee Coffee in Austin Tx is amazing!!! Look for Mike Mckim here on the BX. They really do a great job.
There is also the Coffee Roasters of New Orleans. I wish I knew of someone in Arkansas but thoses guys are closer to you than the Northwest.
Hi Jon, I was at the Coffee Symposium in Houston this week and there is a small roaster in San Antonio, Texas. They have done very well. You can get information at San Antonio Coffee Roasters

Let them know that Mi Mundo Imports/Cafe Don Vittorio gave you the info. I saw them at the symposium.
If you want a new product I have Cafe Don Vittorio from Costa Rica. We bring it in ready for market from San Jose, Costa Rica. BRAND NEW IMPORT!! Great taste. The coffee is from the Tres Rios region, better known as the Bordeaux of Costa Rica for coffee.
I would like for you to try our coffee. I am a roaster / distributor of coffee related stuff in Jackson, TN (about 3 hours east on I 40). Let me know more about your shop and how you are going to prepare your drinks. I am John and my phone number is 731-697-8080.
I would love to send you some samples of my roasting if you're interested. Contact me through my (website - look for upgrades soon). Of course I'm going to say that it's awesome stuff, but you can't take my word for it, can you? Here are some people to check out in the surrounding area.
We are new here in the Upstate SC area, but we are a roastery that specializes in rotating in and out small lots from various farms while keeping in a few regions year round.
We allow for custom roasting, allow our clients to pick a crop they want exclusively for themselves if they desire, and will blend espresso in any manner you desire (pre blending, post blending, double roasting, or anything crazy you can think of!) We also do exclusive blends for any wholesale customer willing to take the time to sit down and work on one with us.
Lastly, our coffee is always roasted as you order for wholesale customers, so its guaranteed fresh!
