Rose Park Roasters

The Rose Park neighborhood is home to some of the best eateries and craft coffee shops that Long Beach has to offer. Though there are many options to choose from, we have to admit that one coffee shop/coffee roaster, in particular, has stolen our hearts – Rose Park Roasters

In 2009, they began to roast and deliver coffee for home brewers so that the people of Long Beach could enjoy the perfect cup of coffee from the comfort of their own homes. They believe that “the ideal cup of coffee is brewed at home – inexact science, improvised brewing equipment, lack of formal barista training, and less than ideal water composition can not diminish the quintessential coffee experience of daily ritual.” Even though the business has grown and they now have three locations, they still encourage at home brewing and promise free bicycle delivery. In no time, you can have freshly roasted coffee delivered right to your doorstep, adding a personal connection to your experience.  

We were able to chat with one of the awesome owners, Andrew Phillips, to learn more about the beginning of Rose Park Roasters and what’s in store for their future! 

How did Rose Park Roasters begin?

The story begins with business partners Andrew Phillips and Nathan Tourtellotte. After attending college at Biola University, they decided it was time to start a business. In 2008, they noticed that there weren’t many specialty coffee companies in Long Beach, so they saw this as an opportunity and took it. That’s when they started their coffee roasting and delivery services. 

How has the Rose Park Roasters evolved since it opened its doors?

The original vision was to focus on wholesaling, e-commerce, and bike delivery. They soon realized that in order to get their coffee in the hands of more Long Beachians, they’d have to re-evaluate their business model. Soon after, they opened up their first shop on 4th Street! It didn’t take long for Rose Park Roasters to become the talk of the town. Since then, they’ve opened two additional locations and they have a roastery. Another major shift occurred when they opened the doors of their location on Pine Street. They wanted to bring a high-end culinary experience to the table, so they decided that Chef Melissa Ortiz was the one to make it happen. If you’re looking for a place to get quality coffee, wine, and bite to eat, head over to 800 Pine Avenue! 

What’s next for Rose Park Roasters? 

In addition to working towards the vision that they have for each of the locations, they’re hoping to invest more in their baking program and launch a convenient canned cold brew line!
