Conscious Cup Coffee Roasters is a small batch craft coffee roaster from Crystal Lake, IL. We began roasting coffee in 2006 when we opened our first store. A small drive-thru cafe where we also roasted our coffee on-site. We buy premium, socially and environmentally sustainable coffees from the best growers around the world. Our coffees are bought seasonally to ensure the freshest from harvest. We roast these coffee every week to ensure the absolutely freshest roast date. And, we prepare them for you in our cafes and in partnership with our many wholesale partners.

We take a people focused approach to the coffee wholesale business. That means we focus on getting to know you, your business and your goals. We want to find ways we can assist you in reaching those goals. We will offer our experience and feedback on any problem or idea you bring to us.

This makes us a more engaging vendor. We work in the service of great coffee as much as we work in the service of people. Knowing that sets us apart.
