Zeke's Coffee

Zeke's Coffee is a family owned, small batch coffee roastery. To keep the coffee fresher, we roast 10 - 30 pound batches of coffee, compared to the 150 pound industry standard. We use an air roaster, which roasts quickly and uniformly, leading to cleaner tasting coffee with more distinct regional flavors. We have neighborhood roasteries in Baltimore, Pittsburgh, and Washington, DC - keeping us connected to the communities we caffeinate.
