We have the best coffee customers in the world! Here's what a few of them say about us. We bet you can guess why we think they're great....

Just One Cookbook   says "...we want to introduce you to a bay area coffee roaster we simply love -- HelioRoast. 

They offer truly extraordinary coffee beans and it’s run by a former university professor named Kern Trembath. There are a few unique characteristics about Helio Roast:

They use electric roasters powered by solar energy.
They only roast the beans after you order them. You decide on the type of beans you want and roast level, and your coffee bean is handcrafted just for you.

We discovered their beans at a local supermarket and so far they’re our favorite among all the San Francisco coffee roasters.

We’ve tried Sumatra Toba Batak, No Fear, and Sumatra Lintong Pak beans roasted at Full City+ level and they were amazing.

And there's more from Just One Cookbook!

"Another bay area coffee roaster we highly recommend and offer truly extraordinary coffee beans is HelioRoast Coffee. It’s run by a former university professor named Kern Trembath. There are a few unique characteristics about Helio Roast:

There is nothing like freshly roasted coffee beans, the resulting coffee is simply excellent.

"We're serious coffee people and have tried so many craft roasts over the years but your coffee is consistently wonderful. If I run low and try to sneak in a pot of another roaster's coffee my family immediately knows and asks why it tastes weird. So glad we found your business and wish you the best!"

Hope you're doing well! Just wanted to drop a quick note since we've had a couple of orders from you now with the mix of Kenya Nyeri and Ethiopia Harrar beans. All I can say about the Harrar is, "Wow, wow, wow!" It makes fantastic drip and pour-over Brews and has instantly become the new family favorite. 

Your coffee has really become a part of my family's daily life and we love supporting your business.
