about us

 SLAKE Coffee is a small-batch roastery located on the Central Coast of California. Our goal with every coffee we roast is to live up to our namesake and create coffees that truly satisfy. We achieve that goal by pursuing every expression of the bean; from bright and complex light roasts to caramelized and smoky dark roasts. Regardless of roast level we develop specific roast profiles for every coffee based on the inherent qualities of the bean.
Slake Coffee’s roots trace back to 2007 when owner Tom Walsh began commercially roasting in Cambria, California as Cambria Coffee Roasting Company.

Over the last seventeen years we have enjoyed affirmation from the local community and the larger coffee community with awards for espresso and single origin offerings. Today founder Tom Walsh, sales lead Tom Richardson, and lead roaster Melanie continue our roasting tradition under the SLAKE Coffee name.
