About Us

Carolina Coffee Roasting Company was formed in 1992 to preserve the fine tradition of small-batch coffee roasting. We began as a coffee shop, serving freshly roasted Arabica coffees. Steady growth in mail orders and the wholesale business has taken our coffees up and down the East Coast, as well as across the Blue Ridge. Floyd Pettit, Jr., our esteemed Roastmaster, devoted his career to coffees and coffee blends before he joined us seven years ago. Our other roasters continue to study under Floyd, learning the nuances of fine-roasted coffee.
Carolina Coffee Roasting Company roasts and serves only the highest quality Arabica coffee beans. Coffees have individual flavors, and their uniqueness can be enhanced through the roasting process. We are proud of our roasting expertise and strive to bring each variety of coffee to its ultimate potential. We roast our coffees in small batches so that our customers can experience the fresh taste not available from large commercial coffee suppliers.
While we love our coffees, you, our customers, are most important to us. We hope you sense the care we take in serving you. Sampling our coffee is a sensory-filled adventure. So, sit back, sip, and enjoy one of the greatest pleasures life can bring … the quintessential cup of coffee.
