Fredericksburg Coffee Company is a small batch, specialty roasting company located in the beautiful and historic town of Fredericksburg, Texas. The Texas Hill Country, and Fredericksburg in particular, is a special place that lends itself perfectly to our coffee. Whether you’re here for the wildflowers in spring, to hike Enchanted Rock, to shop the unmatched unique Main Street stores, to visit the one and only Nimitz Museum or the Museum of the Pacific War or to partake of the dozens of local wineries, you can enjoy Fredericksburg Coffee Company coffees during your stay. We focus on quality, service and a good time with no gimmicks that are so prevalent in today’s sales and marketing world.
Our roasting business has been in the works for roughly 7 years. Pete Dionne, head roaster, has 10 plus years of experience in the roasting and coffee shop industry in Colorado and Drew Crocker has had Cartwheel Coffee (@cartwheelcoffeefbg) for 7 years in Fredericksburg. They crossed paths in 2015 and began discussions about a roasting business from the start of their friendship. But…life. Pete and his wife moved north for several years and Drew, while continuing with occasional Cartwheel Coffee events, focused on his forestry profession. Jump forward to 2021 and the paths crossed again. Fortuitous, right??? Drew let Pete know he was still thinking about and interested in starting a roasting business and that was that. After several months of planning and meetings, a name was chosen, the trigger was pulled on a Mill City roaster, final label designs, bag selection, the best coffees from around the world and BAM…Fredericksburg Coffee Company, LLC was born.
Pete and Drew are coffee drinkers with different tastes. They think this is a benefit and that it helps in the development of different coffee profiles and a range of palate pleasers! The tasting notes as described on the labels tend to be very descriptive and that is a result of focused and thorough dialogue, multiple tastings (cuppings) and lots and lots of coffee.
