More About Ladro Roasting
One of Seattle's coffee institutions, Caffe Ladro opened its doors in 1994 and now brews its signature roasts in fourteen locations around the city. Ladro dedicates itself to "telling the story of coffee" with thoughtful relationships and roasting practices, and owner Jack Kelly direct-sources 70% of his beans from farms he’s personally toured.
Ladro’s selection of craft blends range from medium roasts with chocolate and caramel notes to spicy dark roasts fit for espresso and rainy Seattle days. If you’re looking for a lightly-roasted standout, Ladro handpicks their single origin directly from the farms they visit every year. Their annual picks are exquisite featuring some of the best Ethiopian and Costa Rican coffees we’ve ever tasted. They oversee the entire process from farm-to-cup ensuring a unique and vibrant cup with every roast.
