My Take on 

The Coffee

I started the Deer & the Bear as a way to explore my interests in coffee. I’ve always loved coffee from the time that I was a kid smelling my Dad’s early morning coffee to when it helped me through grad school. Over the years I’ve also grown to appreciate its nuances and the rituals around the drink. I’ve learned how different beans, the type of brewing, and the roast can change your experience.


With this in mind, I started this roastery to explore the world of coffee beans and how a coffee can change based on where it’s grown, how it’s processed, and how it’s roasted. Every season I’ll be offering new coffees and new roasts. I’ll always have two single origins, one espresso blend, and one darker roast available for you to chose from.

New from Ethiopia


I’m introducing a new single origin from the Sidamo region of Ethiopia. This will be my new single origin with fruit leaning tasting notes. Specifically this one has raspberry and a hint of dark chocolate as it’s most prominent tasting notes. The roast is lighter to highlight the coffee’s fruity flavors.

Cozy Fruity Sweatshirt

I’m so excited about the new single origin coffee from Ethiopia that I made a sweatshirt. It’s cozy and and you can carry a whole bag of coffee it it’s pocket!
