HOUSTON’S NEWEST COFFEE COMPANY
In 2019 SpindleTap Brewery acquired Avid Coffee Company to launch SpindleTap Coffee Company. SpindleTap Coffee has a passion for coffee, the people who grow it, and the people who consume it.
Roasted to Perfection
Information about the roasting process goes here.
Ten years ago, roaster and co-founder Matthew McKenzie started a job for a large coffee corporation. He was fortunate enough to be trained and mentored by someone who truly had a passion for not only coffee but the farmers who grow it. After four years of working for the coffee “man” and developing his own passion for coffee, he left to work hands-on with farmers in China. It was here where he first worked alongside co-founder Jeff George. Matthew came back with an overwhelming heart for farmers and farming communities across the globe.
COFFEE WITH A PURPOSE
A passion for coffee, the people who grow it, and the people who consume it
SpindleTap Coffee was created in the summer of 2019, after highly regarded local Houston coffee roaster Avid Coffee Co. and SpindleTap Brewery discovered that both entities not only shared a love of all things coffee, but were deeply aligned on their values as well.
SpindleTap Coffee is a purpose-driven coffee company that donates 50% of all profits to support local Houston philanthropic causes through strategic partnerships and fundraisers, and to help coffee farmers across the globe to expand operations and improve their communities.
We very much look forward to sharing these partnerships with you as they develop, so that you know how your cup of passionately crafted coffee is impacting the world around you.
