Best Beans

Our fresh roast coffee begins with the highest quality beans, roasted to flavor in our privately owned and operated coffee shop. Northwoods Roasterie has been roasting its own fairly-traded organic  beans since 2006.

We believe that every coffee we sell should be produced with the utmost integrity—respecting people, and preserving the environment.

Our Story

Driven by his love of an exceptional cup of coffee, John Renaker has made it his mission to provide freshly roasted coffee to the lakes area in Lindstrom, MN and beyond.

Northwoods Roasterie opened it’s doors in Nov. of 2006 with little more than a roaster and a few air pots. Through John’s Christian foundation of honesty, integrity & his “fairness for all” approach – he found success with his idea of bringing coffee as close to it’s origin as possible.

Now in his new location, with an espresso machine, patio and cozy quarters overlooking a full glass pane window into the roasting room, John strives to source only the best fairly-traded and organic beans and has created his own personal roasting style, which results in an adventure in every cup!
