W.T.F. (What's The Fish?)

CFCR is a Sacramento based Coffee Roaster and Retailer.  Known for choosing producers who are as passionate about growing coffee as we are about Roasting and Brewing.  We have many relationships with our producers which allows us access to the best tasting coffees around the world.  We roast to bring out sweetness and fruit acidity and love to teach our customers about the amazing flavors inherent in the bean.  Always part of community events and a leader in making coffee approachable to all.  We spread happiness and good coffee daily.

See our videos from Finca La Merced in Guatemala and hear Juan Luis Barrios tell what it means to his family to have this relationship with us.


A Chocolate Fish is a fish shaped confection, indigenous to New Zealand and recognized as a 'Thank You' for a good deed!
Help Spread a bit of Happiness today!

We are a group of like minded people passionate about Specialty Coffee.  We are interested in how it's grown, processed and roasted to bring out the amazing tastes in the cup.  We love getting to know our producers and learning about their farms and families to ultimately build a long lasting relationship. 

Education|  More than anything we love to share our knowledge with our customers.  There is so much to learn about Specialty Coffee, when we learn new things we love to share it with you.  We hold tasting and brewing classes every 3rd Saturday and have speical events like our Coffee inspired Dinners with local Chefs.  

Community| As co-creator of Specialty Coffee Week Sacramento in 2014 we watched our community create over 40 events geared toward education and celebration of Specialty Coffee. We pioneered SPLAT, Sacramento Public Latte Art Tournament in 2014, which brought together the best roasters in town in a series of tournaments  to showcase our awesome Barista community.  We love bringing people together to celebrate Specialty Coffee.

Local| We love being involved in our local neighboorhoods by contributing to the many schools and fund raisers in and around the Sacramento area. Our coffee grounds are picked up by Re-Soil Sacramento and find themselves in community gardens throughout the city.

Professional Baristas| Our Baristas have competed Regionally & Nationally at the US Barista Championships placing in the Final 6 at the South West Regional Barista Competition in 2012.  That's the highest any Barista in Sacramento has ever placed! It takes dedication to your craft, passion for coffee & hours of preparation. We're very proud of our Awesome Baristas!

So in the end you could say we're a specialty coffee bar full of Professional Coffee Enthusiasts, meet our Baristas on our video collection.
