Prescott Coffee Roasters : Supplier of Quality Coffee Beans

As you may know, Prescott Coffee Roasters has closed the doors to our retail coffee shop. We appreciate, and will miss, all of our loyal customers as well as the occasional visitor who simply wanted a great cup of coffee.

We might not be retail anymore but that doesn’t mean we are going away.

Prescott Coffee Roasters is still your source for high quality, fresh roasted beans!

In an effort to concentrate on ‘the bean’ we have closed our retail store and now wholesale only. This means you can find our coffee in town at locally owned cafes, bakeries & restaurants. You don’t have to look hard to find us!

We supply our high quality, great tasting coffee to retail cafes, coffee shops, and stores in Prescott, Prescott Valley, and all over Northern Arizona.

Our coffee will be distributed solely through Corvis Distributing to the local shops, allowing me to concentrate on roasting and allowing Corvis to concentrate on taking orders, supplying cafes and maintaining equipment!

Corvis can be reached at 928-778-2699, or stop by for a visit at 9551 E. Lorna Ln in Prescott Valley. If you are new to the area and want to find PCR coffee, they can tell you who is selling it close by where you live.

Are you a local business owner who wants to serve our coffee?

Before we can become partners in coffee you must answer ‘yes’ to these questions-

1. Are you willing to buy and maintain good equipment?

2. Are you willing to WEIGH out the appropriate amount of coffee and grind it prior to brewing?

3. Are you willing to order only what you use each week and dispose of any old unsold coffee?

4. Are you willing to ensure your employees will always be trained to do their coffee duties correctly?

If I sell coffee to you through my distributor then YOU are the final factor in how my coffee is prepared and therefore you are a big part of my public image. We are a team. It’s not difficult to do all this right, it’s simply attention to detail. What makes ‘good coffee’ is strictly opinion, and opinions vary throughout the industry. What we ALL agree on is – you can’t cut corners preparing coffee, doing so ensures a beverage that falls far short of the potentially ‘best cup’ you paid for!

Did you answer yes and understand the last paragraph? Contact me through this site or through our Facebook page.

Thank you for looking us up.

Attention all shops & home enthusiasts- Compak grinder prices are about to go up in a month. Looking to get a better grinder? We should talk now.

I am an authorized re-seller for a couple different grinder manufacturers, however my biz is roasting coffee so I don't typically sell a lot or advertise this.

If you're a shop that sells my coffee I will get you the best price for any given grinder.

If you're a home enthusiast that wants to dive into the sad, expensive world of home espresso (or just a pro level grinder for drip) send me a message.

All my sales go through Corvis Distributing because that's how I pay my rent. Together we can still provide some of the best grinders at the best prices.

Good coffee + Good, fresh roasted coffee = good cups of coffee & happy customers.

Also, if you haven't changed your burrs in the last year then it's time to do so!

I'm happy to see so many people marked safe during our most recent fire affecting Viewpoint and other areas nearby.

If anyone winds up starting a fund raiser to help defer losses let me know and I'll throw some coffee your way.

Stay safe!

I want to thank everyone at Ms. Natural's for sampling the cold and hot brews. I think next time I'll do ONLY cold brew coffee.

Everyone can do cold brew at home, and should. It's so versatile you can even heat it up :O. So I wrote this wordy and hopefully entertaining instruction set to absolutely CRUSH cold brew at home. Let me know what you think. Feel free to ask questions and keep an eye out here for the next sampling.

Easy summer time Cold Brew -

Every year when it warms up we get a LOT of cold brew coffee.

Not all of it good. In my opinion.

The result, a lot of people simply write off cold brew everywhere. For real. Which is sad. Cold brew, when done right, is a wonderfully sweet, smooth drink.

Let me prove it to you.

Try this. Invest one ounce of coffee. For this method use coffee ground for your home auto drip brewer. Bonus points from fresh ground.

Take one ounce (by weight) of your ground coffee and put it in jar (or other container that has a lid and can hold at least a cup (8oz).

Don’t have a scale? Use 4 TABLEspoons of compacted ground coffee. That’s roughly 1/4 cup of compacted ground coffee.

The next step- add 5oz of filtered / drinking water to the jar. Swirl, or stir. Whatever gives you the satisfaction of getting all the clumps out. 5oz of water by volume is = to 5oz by weight. That’s just over 1/2 cup.

Now, put the lid on your container and leave it in your refrigerator.

Set a reminder / alarm / timer for 24hrs.

Before your 24 hours are up take your brew basket from your drip brewer, put a filter in it and place it over another jar or cup that can handle 16oz of brew. Extra points to you if you rinse the filter with water. I’ve noticed some of the un-bleached filters can add a paper taste to small batches of coffee.

So you have one of those pause & serve brew baskets that won’t drip into any old cup? Fine, just empty out your coffee maker’s pot and we’ll use that.

When your alarm / timer / reminder goes off take your jar out of the refrigerator. Before you take the top off give it another good swirl or shake so all the ground coffee is suspended in the liquid. This way you can remove the lid and pour it right into filter waiting in your brew basket.

If that’s set up over a jar, let it drip for 30-60 minutes. If you have that pause & serve thing then put your basket back in your coffee maker with the carafe under it and it’ll drip (don’t turn the maker on!). Same deal, wait 30-60 minutes.

After your 60 minute wait almost all the concentrate will be out of the grounds. Are you thrifty like me? Give the basket a few taps or a shake. Resist squeezing the filter in a way to get more drips out, it will break. Bonus points if you rinse and reuse your paper filters (yes, you can do this, I don’t know how food-safe it is but you can do this).

You’ll have a few ounces of concentrate in your new jar. Some people prefer to keep the concentrate and add milk or water later on as needed.

Since we just did a small amount I say add enough cold water so you have 16 oz. total. Give it a stir.

There’s your cold brew. Use a light to medium roast coffee, filtered or drinking water and the right grind setting and you’ll get good stuff!

For my coffees I wouldn’t use the Kelly’s Special Dark or French Kiss Blend for cold brew, but that’s a personal preference. Everything else I sell is game, including FTO DECAF BLEND! The Ethiopia Guji is a beautiful cup this way.

What’s that? It’ll get diluted if you add ice you say? Shut up. Double up the amounts so you can pour some of your brand new cold brew into the ice cube tray. Let it freeze and use those ice cubes. Bonus points if you already do this.

Now what? You want to make a lot more than one 16 oz drink? Alright. There are a couple ways to do this-

First- Scale up the formula. The ratio is 1oz (by weight) coffee to 5oz (by weight OR volume) of water. So try 5oz of coffee and 25 oz of water in a quart jar, that might be a tight fit. You may have to pour through a larger filter or do 1/2 at a time in your smaller filter.

Second way- A Toddy® coffee maker. Their home coffee maker can be found locally at Cost Plus, sometimes at other such shops. Oxo also has a nice cold brew system.

Have you read all this and would like a Free Toddy® home brewer worth $40? Can you pick it up at the warehouse or at a local shop that serves PCR coffee? Then reply to this post, I’ll pick a name from the replies on May 8th in the evening.

Any questions? Ask! Look out for the next free sampling, there will be a lot of cold brew there,
