Coffea is a locally owned roasterie and cafe. It was envisioned by extremely passionate coffee-lovers and opened in March 2009 in Sioux Falls, SD. It is our one and only location and runs - successfully - to this day due to our amazing staff of self-proclaimed coffeegeeks (read: 'roasters' and 'baristas').
Our mission? To source, roast, brew, prepare and serve coffee without compromise. Just for you. (Ok, for us too...but we'll share. I promise.)
Co-owner, Jon Brudvig, is the roasting guru and the genius behind our world-class selection of coffees, and most often can be seen logging roast profiles and slurping loudly as he cups our coffees on a daily basis. Other co-owner, Jenna Aukerman, rocks the bar whenever her baristas let her, and usually can be found sipping cappuccinos to ensure "quality control". Both Jon and Jenna have been in the coffee business since early 2000s and have been too spoiled with good coffee to leave the scene.
We are joined by an amazing crew that pushes the envelope of what coffee can be and cares about sharing that with every person that walks through our door. (Check out our cafe page to meet them.) We truly believe that coffee is something special and deserves to be treated with the utmost respect, and we hope to share that passion with everyone we meet.
