A Desire for Better Coffee
Motif Roasters was born out of a love of coffee and a desire to provide the people of Cape Ann with better coffee options. Roaster and owner Eoin Vincent was disappointed with the stale, ground coffee that was the norm in local markets. So he set out to find the freshest, flavorful coffee beans he could and roast them himself.
Eoin started small, experimenting with different coffees on his home coffee roaster. But soon, his passion for coffee outgrew his humble setup. He upgraded to a professional roaster, a Diedrich iR5, and began selling his coffee to local cafes and markets.
Motif Roasters coffee quickly gained a following for its freshness and flavor. Eoin's careful roasting process brings out the unique characteristics of each coffee bean, resulting in a cup of coffee that is very satisfying.
