PT's was born on February 3rd, 1993. That makes us...

...11 years younger than the Specialty Coffee Association of America, but 5 years older than the Specialty Coffee Association of Europe
...7 years older than the Roasters Guild
...9 years older than the U.S. Barista Championship

...11 years older than Roast Magazine
...24 and a half years older than our newest cafe, PT's Oread
In our 25 years we've helped usher in coffee's third wave by establishing Direct Trade practices to support the farmers who produce our coffee and ensure their continued success; built a large wholesale program across the U.S.; expanded our brick-and-mortar cafe locations from Topeka to Kansas City and Lawrence; received more than 30 scores of 94 and above from Coffee Review; received Roast Magazine's Roaster of the Year award (2009); and much more.
We've been at this for a long time, but we're growing more than ever. 25 is looking good!
