While the climate on Cape Cod isn't right for growing coffee beans, a variety of shops now roast bean locally, giving you access to the freshest coffee available.

So, in short, yes, coffee is roasted on the Cape, and here are some retailers who do it, in addition to information on where to buy these fantastic products.

 

Snowy Owl Coffee Roasters

Ever since Snowy Owl Coffee Roasters opened its doors in 2005, it has been dedicated to roasting and serving ethically sourced beans from around the world. Today, the retailer has two locations - Main Street Chatham and Main Street Brewster - both of which serve coffee, espresso, cappuccino, tea, matcha, hot chocolate, and much more.

If you're unable to get to one of the shops, you can pick up a bag of coffee at retailers like the Organic Market in Dennis Port or Mashpee, Salty Market in Truro, and Main Street Wine & Gourmet in Orleans. Various restaurants and cafes, including Clean Slate Eatery, The Coonamessett Inn, 361 Coffee and Espresso Bar, and the Brewster Fish House, also serve their products.

The coffee is available for online order and delivery, as well.

 

Cape Cod Coffee

The most prominent coffee roaster on the Cape is none other than Cape Cod Coffee, which has three retail locations - Mashpee Commons, Mashpee Main Street, and Barnstable Airport - and is available for purchase at restaurants and shops all over the Cape. You can even grab a cup of their brew as far away as New York City.

Cape Cod Coffee offers 12 different types of beans, including organic, blueberry, and pumpkin spice, and you can even purchase single-serving C-cups to take home with you.

You can also order online, take a tour of the roasting facility, and pick up a gift basket for the coffee lover in your life.

The Mashpee Commons location is now open for breakfast and lunch, as well, as Cape Cod Coffee is well on its way to becoming a must-visit destination on the Cape.

 

Three Fins

Aesthetically, it's tough to beat Three Fins Coffee Roasters and Mercantile in West Dennis. After all, the Main Street building is spectacular, featuring 28-foot ceilings with exposed beams, which create a modern look and a warm atmosphere. Three Fins is open from 7 AM until 5 PM every day, giving you more than enough opportunity to pop in for a drink.

If you fall in love with the coffee here, you can pick up a bag to take home with you. They have sampler packs available, as well, so you can try out six different roasts to find out which you like best. Online ordering is an option if you're unable to make it to their shop.

A bonus at Three Fins is that you can watch the coffee being roasted. This perk allows you to see a bit of the process behind making coffee, including the small-batch roasting technique used here.

 

Beanstock Coffee Roasters

You'll notice that Beanstock Coffee Roasters is a little different from the other coffee-based businesses on Cape Cod because it isn't a coffee shop that roasts beans for its own drinks; it's a coffee bean wholesaler.

Luckily, dozens of businesses on the Cape sell the products from Beanstock Coffee Roasters, so they easy items to get your hands on.

For example, you can sample these beans at local restaurants like Mac's Shack in Wellfleet, Rock Harbor Grill in Orleans, Jimmy's Hideaway in Provincetown, Capeside Kitchen in Harwich, and the Brewster Fish House, just to name a few. It's also possible to pick up a bag of roasted beans from retailers like the Barnstable Market, Bean & Cod in Falmouth, Corner Store in Chatham, Nauset Farms in Orleans, and Whole Foods in Hyannis.

You can order their products online and have them delivered, as well.

Beanstock Coffee Roasters is committed to selling organic, fair trade products, and brings its beans in from all over South America and Africa.

 

Keeping Your Coffee Local

Each person has individual preferences when it comes to coffee, so it's nice that Cape Cod has so many local options.

Most of the beans available through these retailers are ethically-sourced and sustainably-grown, with many organic options, so you know you're receiving high-quality products and that the workers are paid a fair wage.

The next time you head out for a cup of coffee or need new beans for the house, give one of these Cape Cod-based businesses a try. You'll surely be happy with your decision once you taste the freshness and quality that they have to offer.
