Tomales, Marin Co, California is a small town located 60 miles north of San Francisco. The town’s beginning dates back to the mid-1800s as settlers left their gold rush endeavors to start a new life in the fog covered region near the Pacific Ocean. The historic charm still exists and the town’s current fame is tied to the oysters in great supply at nearby Dillon beach and the area dairy farms. It is also the birthplace of Coast Roast Coffee dating back to 1991. To pay tribute to the birthplace and origins of Coast Roast, we have decided to change the name of our Master Blend Organic Coffee to Tomales Blend Organic Coffee.
The quaint town of Tomales is a unique blend of two worlds; breath taking California coast meets the lush agricultural gem of hillsides and valleys. Coast Roast founders Jane Healy and Richard Oppen were both artistic and entrepreneurial and were dedicated to creating a premium quality product. These distinctive combinations of the town of Tomales and our founders are parallel to this premium medium roast blend which showcases beans from Ethiopia, Guatemala, Peru and Sumatra.
This variety is a cornerstone of our product offering and we are proud to honor our Coast Roast founders and the town of Tomales by renaming it Tomales Blend Organic Coffee.
