Elm Coffee Roasters
Elm Coffee opened in 2014 in Pioneer Square, Seattle. We were founded with the goal of roasting and serving exceptional light-roast coffees, in an unpretentious and hospitable manner.
Founder Brendan Mullally was born in raised in Seattle before moving to New York City to work in coffee for nearly 7 years. He moved back to his hometown to pursue his dream of opening a specialty coffee roaster and café.
We purchase coffees that are sweet, clean and fruit-forward and roast them just enough to avoid both burned, charred flavors or raw, vegetal, and sour ones. We primarily purchase coffee Colombia, Guatemala, Ethiopia, Kenya and Rwanda, working with small importers and producers who set a high standard of agronomy and quality.
