August 2017 - Present4 yrs10 mosBusiness Owner July 2017 - Present Magnolia, Texas Sailors know good coffee Battleship Beanery Micro-Roast was spawned by our own retired U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer in a sincere desire to find and roast the very best coffee beans to create the very best cup a Joe possible. Also, an avid coffee drinker, Chief brings 21 years of deck plate leadership to every single roast. Taking green coffee beans and roasting them to perfection is a dedication and a passion. Most coffee today is roasted and canned or bagged in bulk by the big guys. Although some of the big guys can make a decent cup of coffee, by the time it goes from the roaster to the distributor, to the big chain stores or coffee houses, and then finally to your home cup it is stale and no longer at its peak freshness. Fresh coffee are beans that are roasted and then ground and brewed to the cup within three weeks of roasting. The big guys just cannot get it to the cup that fast. Battleship Beanery roasts its beans in small micro-roast portions, then bags and delivers the beans to the customer within three weeks or less ensuring that the just-roasted cup of Joe is as fresh as possible. You may have had good coffee, but until you have had coffee within three weeks of roasting, you have never had GREAT coffee. Give it a try, you will definitely not be disappointed www.battleshipbeanery.com
