ROOTED IN HISTORY.
The story of Pisgah Coffee Roasters began over a century ago and almost 4,000 miles away. In the late 1800's Jotham Lipsi's ancestors made their way from Italy to Brazil and found work on a coffee plantation.
A generation later, Jotham's father, an agronomist, bought a plantation in Minas Gerais, a southern state of Brazil renowned for its coffee production. Jotham spent his childhood soaking up the lessons of coffee growing during his time spent on the plantation, which consisted of 400 acres and over 300,000 coffee trees.
Brevard College brought Jotham to western North Carolina in 2004. Like most do, he fell in love with the area. In 2010, Jotham and his father established a coffee business importing and roasting our single-origin, smooth, low acidic Brazilian Beans to the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
A ROAST FOR EVERY PALETTE.
Pisgah Coffee Roasters' line includes a variety of light, medium and dark roasts, consistently roasted to bring out a variety of flavor profiles and provide a smooth, enjoyable flavor whether you enjoy Shining Rock Light or Dupont Dark!
QUALITY IN EVERY CUP
In addition to sourcing the highest quality beans, Pisgah Coffee Roasters employs an innovative roaster that separates chaff (which contributes to bitterness) from the coffee beans. Unlike others, Pisgah also slow roasts its beans, ensuring a more even and complete roast. The result? A consistently superior cup of coffee, time after time.

GLOBAL COFFEE. LOCAL FLAVOR.
Using the experience gained from the commercial coffee business, Jotham created Pisgah Coffee Roasters in 2015 as a way to combine his passion for coffee with his love for the mountains of western North Carolina.
"We feel a deep connection to these mountains."
What truly sets us apart is our commitment to quality.
