M36 Coffee Roasters is a Michigan coffee company dedicated to the pursuit of the roast. Our roots go back to the late eighties when we learned the art of the café from Espresso Royale. These folks were inspired by the styles and traditions of crowded and bustling Italian cafes and the early American pioneers like Peet’s and Café Trieste.
It was always our dream to roast for ourselves, and in 2020, when the Covid-19 pandemic shutdown the Espresso Royale company, we bought the roasting business and became “Covid babies”. Here we oversee the process from crop to cup, making sure every roast is what we’d want to drink at home. Whether you’re a total coffee nerd—or just want a simple, honest cup—our blends and single-origins are sure to please!
We are grateful for this opportunity to keep on doing what we love and sharing it with you.
