01 / OUR STORY
The apocryphal tale goes like this: In the late 1600s, the Turkish army swept across much of Eastern and Central Europe, arriving at Vienna in 1683. Besieged and desperate, the Viennese needed an emissary who could cross Turkish lines to get a message to nearby Polish troops. Franz George Kolshitsky, who spoke Turkish and Arabic, took on the assignment disguised in Turkish uniform. After many perilous close calls, Kolshitsky completed his valiant deed, delivering news of the Poles’ imminent rescue to Vienna. Kolshitsky, having lived in the Arab world for several years, knew these to be bags of coffee. Using money bestowed on him by the mayor of Vienna, Kolshitsky bought the coffee and opened Central Europe’s firstever coffee house (The Blue Bottle), bringing coffee to a grateful Vienna.
“I will only coffeeBLUE less than 48 hours out of the roaster THEsell FIRST BOTTLE to my guests, so they may enjoy coffee at peak flavor. I will only use the finest, most delicious, and responsibly sourced beans.”
In the early 2000s, in Oakland, California, a slightly disaffected freelance musician and coffee lunatic, weary of the commercial coffee enterprise and stale, overly roasted beans, decided to open a roaster for people who were clamoring for the actual taste of fresh coffee.
OUR COFFEE “Green coffee is a living thing, more like produce than an inert spice or candy, and each one has a unique life span based on who produced it and where it's from.” —Charlie Habegger, Green Coffee Buyer Flavor in coffee is a crescendo—no part of the journey is boring.

FRESH, FRESH, FRESH Fresher coffee is more delicious cof fee. Oxygen is the no. 1 enemy of cof fe e freshness because it causes coffee to age and coffee flavors to degrade. So we developed a method of pressure-sealing our cans in an oxygen-free, freshness-locking, time-stopping “dome.”
