What is Breyting Community Roaster?

Breyting Community Roaster—affectionally referred to as “Breyting,” is designed to do one thing well—coffee fundraising. The roastery is managed by seasoned coffee professionals and change-makers devoted to harnessing the support of vast amounts of coffee drinkers into a support system for organizations and people pushing for a better society.

Since 2007, the roastery partners with wonderful organizations in the areas of Environmental Protection and Conservation. Economic Development, Social Justice, Human Rights, Public Health, and Animal Rights. We have two different coffee fundraising programs that our community allies can use to support their missions. The first is our easy-to-implement online fundraiser, and the second is our traditional, more profitable wholesale fundraising program. Choose the one that best fits your needs.
