Other Roasters

Small-batch roasters, who often lack consistency and variety, and large commercial roasters, who are often too rigid to adapt to you. Queen Bean Coffee Company combines the best of the small batch and commercial roaster strengths -- an obsession with details, devotion to quality, passion, precision, consistency, and variety.


Small batch roaster

  • Strength: Quality beans, attention to detail, communicating the coffee story, passion
  • Weakness: Lack of consistency, limited options, often no decaf or flavored coffee options, limited degassing chambers, exclusive vs. inclusive messaging

Large commercial roaster

  • Strength: Purchasing power, consistency, large distribution channels, a wide variety of offerings, advanced roasting technology 
  • Weakness: Limited customization, lower-quality beans, mass production, regional blending of beans

Competitive Advantages

We're natural nesters. We're women. We have traveled, lived abroad, had multiple professional lives and know that it is the small, familiar things - like coffee, that ground us and give us peace. Quality and the story aren't enough. People need to feel connected and invested in their products. They also need to feel they can consume without judgement. As a company, we provide an exceptional cup of coffee. As consumers ourselves, we want to make our coffee a member of your household - give it new purpose by giving you more ways to drink, present, discuss, and enjoy your cup. We want to make you the expert and the innovator.


150+ Years of exceptional roasting

Mills' dedication to coffee has made it one of the nations oldest, continuously family-run roasters in the nation.

Great decafs and flavored coffees

Our decafs and flavored coffees are roasted with the same care and attention to detail as our single origin coffees.

Flexible roasting

We can hand-roast 1 pound at a time as easily as we can roast 1,000 pounds. The process is tailored to the bean and customer.

Customized

Our master roasters will partner with you to create the perfect blend for your event.

Unique pricing models

Being an importer as well as a roaster, we have the flexibility to offer highly competitive pricing to corporate and high volume customers.

The pretty factor

We love to make things pretty - our drinks, bags, gifts, etc. We want that "wow" feeling to start the moment you open the shipping box.
