It all started with a small one pound home coffee roaster on our front porch listening to a vinyl record through the open window of our house. The sounds and smells were as intoxicating as the Sierra Nevada Torpedo we were drinking. The Roasted Record stated as an online blog to share the incredible experience. As time passed, more coffee than we could consume was roasted to better learn the skill of coffee roasting. As a result, we were giving coffee away to friends and family until they demanded that we sell it to them. That was the beginning of Roasted Record, LLC in 2014.
Through Roaster Mike's other profession, as a PGA Golf Professional, we were able to make some contacts and pick up a few wholesale accounts. The increased amount of roasting needed a bigger machine and a new location. In 2017 we opened our first brick and mortar shop in downtown Stuart, Florida. Space was available to make the roaster into a cafe as well as offer some vinyl records for sale. Two years later, a building just down the roast went on the market so we purchased and renovated it to its former 1950s mid century modern glory.
Today the Roasted Record is the country's only Coffee Roaster, Coffee shop and Vinyl record store all in one place. We have over 25 different wholesale accounts and are served in cafes all over the state of Florida. Our vinyl collection has grown and we now have two Diedrich roasters, one for production and one for designing our competition roasts and our more exclusive "Craft and Competition" series which displays all the nuance of our international award winning roast profiles.
While we have grown considerably, we stay true to that fateful afternoon listening to an original pressing of U2's Joshua Tree, roasting on a Behmor 1600 and drinking a Sierra Nevada Torpedo (or two!) While selling coffee helps pay our bills, our goal is to share with everyone the joy of that day.
