Ruby Coffee Roasters
After years of leading the roasting and coffee sourcing programs of other notable roasters, Jared and Deanna Linzmeier moved back to Jared's hometown of Nelsonville, Wisconsin to build their own roastery. Because doing something great doesn't always mean doing something large, Ruby has opted to partner with small farms, small exporters and create small coffee bars, allowing them to have a much greater impact on the economic, environmental, social sustainability of specialty coffee.
This perspective has propelled a roasting operation, which began in a spare workshop room at Jared's childhood home, to being named Best Coffee in Wisconsin by Food and Wine two years in a row. Accolade aside, Ruby's real goal is a simple one: to source phenomenal quality coffee and make it approachable to everyone.
