The facility is the home of their new state-of-the-art coffee roaster, doubling the company's roasting capacity. The facility also boasts a training and cupping room and supports the production of Conscious Cup's popular kegged Toddy cold brews, nitro flash-chilled coffee products, house-made syrups, and chai blends, all of which are distributed to the company's retail cafes and wholesale partners.

Michael Shipley, Managing Partner of Conscious Cup Coffee Roasters, expressed his excitement about the new facility, saying, "This relocation has provided a much-needed upgrade over our previous roasting space. It allows us to continue our commitment to providing top-tier coffee to our community and partners."
