We wanted the perfect cup of coffee, so we roasted it. We believe that the future can be humane, sustainable and delicious - so delicious we won't wait for it to arrive. The future is businesses that have a minimal ecological footprint, that are tied constructively to their consumer and producer communities. The future is knowing what is enough and savoring a sweet little spot in a well-balanced world. We serve our customers the future today by providing magnificent, ethically-sourced coffees, medium-roasted and expertly blended for espresso and more that will blow their minds and let their thoughts drift to a future worth working for. It's not science fiction, it's Scarlet City.

Resistance is Futile.


Decaf drinkers, we take you seriously. We know that with so many important reasons to forgo caffeine, there are huge numbers of you who are underserved by specialty coffee roasters. We know because we drink decaf, too. We recognize that you're true coffee lovers, pursuing your coffee passion even without the benefit of the drug.  Great tasting decaf beans can be hard to find and a challenge to roast well, due to their fragility, but we think it's all worth the time. All of the beans that go in our decaf blend are water processed – a 100% chemical-free process which protects the coffee's natural flavors. Extraordinary coffee, no caffeine: it's not a miracle, it's Scarlet City.
