Prime Roast Coffee has been chosen as the NH Women Owned Small Business of the Year. It has been a pretty great year for us. Our new roasting facility is garnering quite a bit of attention and business is exploding on all fronts. Our new state of the art coffee roaster is handling this major increase in demand without breaking a sweat.
Prime Roast Coffee Company also owes its existence to someone who took it upon herself to be what she wanted to see in her community. In the early 1990s Judy Rogers was selling coffee in bulk out of her specialty kitchen store on Main Street in Keene. When the coffee company (which will go unnamed here) went public, the product “became a different animal,” Rogers says. “It was wonderful, and then it wasn’t wonderful.”
