24 New Coffee Roasters to Support in 2024

24 new coffee roasters 2024

As specialty coffee consumption continues to grow throughout the United States, the number of new companies and facilities devoted to turning green coffee brown has spread precipitously. Simultaneously, existing coffee brands have continued to invest in new roasting production facilities in order to meet rising demand. 

Some of the new roasting operations we covered this year focus on coffees grown in particular countries or regions; some are obsessed with exploring new advances in post-harvest processing; some aim to provide additional services to the industry; and some boast business models designed to support local communities or communities abroad.

Continuing our 2023 Year in Review, here are 24 new roasters — or new roasteries from existing brands — poised to provide high-quality coffees in 2024:
