About Our Roastery

Small batch, hand roasted coffees

Esselon Coffee Roasting Co is an artisanal, small-batch coffee roaster located in lovely Hadley, Massachusetts. With a solid 10 years roasting experience behind us, we emphasize Direct and Fair Trade coffees, supporting progressive economics in regional communities to develop some of the finest coffee beans grown on the planet. Our roaster is a 1969 Gothot, a classic drum roaster that’s been in continuous use for nearly 50  years. We’re also an award winning café and coffee wholesaler, offering a wide range of brew equipment and supplies, including La Marzocco, Rancilio, Fetco, Bonavita, Yama Cold Brew towers and the essential Pacific Barista Series. We also have a flexible, eclectic coffee program for your coffeeshop, café, museum or university.

Trail runner, student of Judo, deeply philosophical, insanely dedicated to the craft of roasting and also, most importantly, a fantastic father to two very smart little children, neither of which know very much about coffee.
Richard
Roaster Emeritus
Our in-house McGyver, Richard once saved a week’s roasting using an old vacuum cleaner. Woodworker, wine drinker and literal Jack of All Trades, Richard prefers a Sumatra French Press, cause it’s as down to earth as he is.

Former gas station coffee drinker, now craft roasted aficionado, Ben is also a Camp Master dedicated to the craft of canoeing, fishing and setting things on fire. Focused on water ratios and grind settings, he's also ambidextrous with a French Press.
