City for 30 Years
It’s our birthday, and we’re celebrating You.
When Danny O’Neill founded The Roasterie in his basement thirty years ago, he knew an incredible cup of coffee could spark something bigger. And it did. The Roasterie has become an iconic brand that fuels an entire city of movers and makers.
And we’re turning our attention to you – the incredible people fueled daily by The Roasterie and their passion for making the world a better place.

Take a flight down memory lane.
Danny O’Neill visits Costa Rica as an exchange student and picks his first coffee. The coffee tree, coffee production, and roasting inspire him.
Danny gets his first roaster and begins roasting coffee in his basement. The Roasterie becomes official, and the first sale is made!
Norm joins Danny as the second employee at The Roasterie. They moved out of the basement and into The Roasterie’s first factory location at 1519 Cherry on July 10, 1994.
The Roasterie factory outgrows its spaces and moves to 2601 Madison in Kansas City.
The Factory relocates to its current location at 1204 W. 27th Street off Southwest Boulevard.
The Roasterie’s cold brew canning line is installed at the factory, producing all cold brew in-house.
