About Us

Drogo Coffee and Tea started, like most things do, as a passion of our owner, roaster, and tea-blender, Barrie.

 

Having worked as a barista for corporate, big-name coffee companies and developing cafe programs for local restaurants, Barrie knew that she wanted to do something for herself for a change.

 

Over the next few years, she began to teach herself how to roast coffee, adapting fire roasting techniques to create slow-roasted blends.

 

As an experiment for the holidays one year, she bought ten pounds of green coffee beans to roast as holiday presents.

 

Her thinking was this: "If I roast this coffee and everyone LOVES their gifts, I'll take the plunge and make this my full-time job. If I roast this coffee and everyone HATES their gifts, well, I'll be out ten pounds of coffee and I'll keep my day job."

 

Two and a half years later, you can say that the rest is history.
