Company History

Family owned and operated company roasting coffee in Eastern Washington.  We are leading the industry in hot beverage development, private graphics, and gourmet coffee, backed by highly trained and motivated team of people who are the key to our success.

 

John Roskelley started the business in August 1997 after leaving the stresses of the corporate world.  Of course, it did take a quintuple by-pass surgery after a massive heart attack and stroke all at the age of 48 to convince him to pull the trigger.

 

He wanted to supply customers with a combination of things that they have never experienced with another company.  Those things were high-quality products at competitive prices backed by a service level that is above the expectations of everyone.  Treasure Valley Coffee now is writing the book on service.  From PERFECTING our cleaning service to developing identities and brands for our customers, Treasure Valley Coffee is about more than just coffee, we are a partner and innovator with our customers.

 

Treasure Valley Coffee is our wholesale business based out of the Tri-Cities since 1997.  We have been passionate about being the best coffee provider available through great quality and unparalleled service.  As a family, we have always hoped to roast our own coffees and in fall of 2012, that dream became a reality.  We began Columbia Basin Roasters, blending and roasting our local gourmet line of coffees and distributing it through our wholesale business.

 

We started in a garage in Kennewick with no customers.  We now have thousands of customers including 12 routes and 25 employees.   We are a family.  It is true that there are 4 family members in the business, but the success has been attained through employees that have also become family.  We laugh together, cry together, suffer together, and celebrate together.  We are all part of something!  Each of the teammates fills an important role in moving the company forward and it’s an honor to witness and be part of.
