facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Sky Island Roasters is located at 1575 W. American Avenue. The business is owned and operated by Deb and Robert Breen.

They have been in Oracle over 10 years and Robert has been operating his land surveying and drafting business Environmental Field Services LLC.

Sky Island Roasters was started by their daughter Melissa and her husband Beau Wilson, and has been operating in Flagstaff for five years.

The Breens have been roasting coffee for four years and brought the five-kilo roaster from Flagstaff to Oracle where they opened another Sky Island Roasters in Nov.

“We are passionate about drinking and roasting coffee” said Robert. “Fresh roasted coffee is much more potent and pleasing to your palate.”

Robert and Deb explained how coffee cherries are like wine grapes. Inside the cherries are the beans. Depending on the origin of where they are grown, they develop different flavors from the soil, climate, elevation and water.

The Breens can custom roast and custom blend for those that are knowledgeable about their coffee. They have prepackaged coffees for sale or they can roast, grind and package fresh coffee in 20 to 30 minutes. Twelve to fifteen varieties of unroasted beans are kept in stock.

Some of the coffees they carry are Columbian, Brazilian, Guatemalan, Mexican Chiapas and Ethiopian Harrar Fair Trade Organic. A subscription service, which ships their coffee to customers’ homes or businesses, is also available.

Their blends include their signature American Blend that consists of a finely roasted blend of Brazilian, Colombian and Guatemalan origin, a Sunrise Blend that is South American and/or Central American origin and an Espresso blend.

These are roasted to a Full City plus roast (medium). They also have a Sumatran Decaf and Columbia Decaf.

Sky Island Roasters uses a mountain water decaffeination process that keeps the coffee flavors intact. No chemicals are used in the process.
