Iowa Coffee Company

Iowa Coffee Company has been a small batch coffee roaster since 1991. Since we were founded, there have been many changes in the world. However, the core values that drive the success of Iowa Coffee Company will always remain constant.

We roast to order for the freshest coffee experience. Your coffee will be on its way to you within 24 hours of roasting. For that reason, custom orders are always welcome.

We conduct our business with a “waste not, want not” philosophy. For example, we use biodegradable paper cups with recyclable sleeves and lids, and compost all used coffee grounds for use in our gardens. Taking steps to reduce our environmental footprint now and in the future is important to us.

We hope you enjoy the Iowa Coffee Company experience. Thank you for your loyal support.

Tom's Coffee Brewing Tip

When brewing your first pot of Iowa Coffee Company coffee, it is a good rule to make it a bit stronger than you normally would. If too strong, you can always add hot water to dilute it. If too weak, however, there is no way to correct except to start over with a fresh pot.

Know Your Roasting Stages

  1. City Roast: Lightest roast. First crack is done.
  2. City + Roast: First crack finished, moving toward the beginning of the second crack.
  3. Full City Roast: Close to the beginning of the second crack.
  4. Full City + Roast: Middle of the second crack.
  5. Light French Roast: Second crack is done, but no oils out on beans.
  6. French Roast: Oil out on beans and beans are dark brown.
  7. Spanish Roast: Dark, dark beans, roasted by special request only.
