Meet the roasters, learn about the origin of the finely crafted beans and warm up with a cup of some of the best java around on the new South Sound Coffee Trail. This route to roasters explores all things craft coffee in Washington’s capital region. For the self-guided tour, a curated map of regional cafes and roasteries, and details on nearby coffee cuppings and tastings are provided.

The trail highlights three roasters: Batdorf & Bronson, Olympia Coffee Roasting Co. and Olympic Crest Coffee Roasters. Visitors can find details on each café and roastery, along with tried and tested tips from locals and the roasters.

Find tastings and cuppings at the Batdorf & Bronson tasting room and sample a variety of roasts. Or, take a cupping class at Batdorf & Bronson or Olympia Coffee Roasting Co. to learn about each coffee’s origin and flavor profiles.

Whether it’s latte art, ambiance or aroma that’s most important, an infographic style quiz leads sippers to which local java may jive with their coffee style. Take the quiz here.
