Visions In Focus Roaster: Tinker Coffee Co.

“Tinker Coffee Co. was born from a simple idea: amazing coffee should be available and accessible, not pretentious and intimidating.” – Stephen Hall, Co-Founder

This month we welcome Indianapolis based Tinker Coffee Company to the showroom! Focusing their efforts on roasting some of the best coffees in the world, co-founders and brothers-in-law Jeff Johnson & Stephen Hall promote the educational side of specialty coffee and hope to show people just how fun and delicious a perfect cup of coffee can be. Jeff and Stephen’s drive to educate is done so by offering guided weekly cupping classes in their roasting facility to help introduce and educate the community on coffee roasting and how Tinker implements their roast profiles.

Tinkers’s sweet & bright Kenya Peaberry finishes with concord grape & black currant and is one of our personal favorites! Also, don’t miss the aromatic notes of amaretto in their Guatemala El Limonar Bourbon and Caturra. These coffees plus other varietals are for sale in our showroom now. Come by Visions today while supplies last!
