It all began in 1976 when we established our family owned and operated auto repair business, catering to all makes and models, but specializing in Cadillacs. Classic car restoration projects and some race cars were frequent clients too. Our business expanded in 1990 when our car customers demanded that Marvin share his passion for coffee and coffee roasting with them. They wanted that wonderful aroma of freshly roasted and ground coffee in their own homes. After several months of researching, he ordered the perfect 1 lb. roaster and the coffee business began. In 1994 when we realized we needed a commercial roaster to supply larger volume orders and some local coffee shops. We sell specialty grade coffee representing the top 5% of the all coffee grown Now with over 40 different coffees to choose from we have something for everyone. These include unique and rare micro-lots farm direct coffee. There are so many wonderful stories behind each coffee we bring to sell. We don't just sell you a bag of coffee we take on a journey. We are the only roaster where you can walk in, select your coffee and watch it being roasted. Coffee make a great gift!
In 2004, yet another passion and hobby of Marvin's, cooking and grilling, transitioned into another business. In his never-ending quest to be the best, his research of grills led to us purchasing a Primo Ceramic Grill. This is the only ceramic grill Made In USA. He took grilling to a new level. The versatility -grill, smoker, and oven- and consistently awesome food that came off of this grill, totally sold us on it. We were also impressed by the service and support the Primo folks in Georgia gave us. Long story short, when they asked us to be a dealer for Primo, we couldn't refuse. Later, they honored us with being the premier North Texas Authorized Primo Dealer. In 2008, the grill business expanded further by adding Fire Magic Gas Grills and Islands from the RH Peterson Company in Ca. USA. for our gas grill customers. We have our own line of awarding winning spice rubs and pepper sauces. We also carry a big selection of other rubs, spices, sauces, plus an array of BBQ accessories and novelties. We import coffee tree wood from Costa Rica for grilling and smoking. Grilling classes and demos also offered.
So, is it any wonder that Marvin was presented with very prestigious awards? The Fort Worth Weekly honored him with their Best of 2008 Jack Of All Trades and again Best of 2014 Best Coffee.
One thing is for sure. You never know what you will find here next! Just be assured, you will find quality products, good conversation and possibly a one stop gift shop! Where else can you come in for a pound of fresh roasted coffee and be entertained with so much variety? We are looking forward to hearing from you!.
