The Kaffeeklatsch Inc. first opened its doors to coffee lovers on May 17, 1976. Our business was patterned after the San Francisco coffee houses we visited while living in California. After a year of business, we decided to roast coffee beans ourselves, insuring absolute control over freshness and quality. We acquired a vintage 1929 Jabez Burns coffee roaster from New Orleans and began roasting for a growing number of satisfied customers. Since November 1977, we’ve enticed passersby with the aroma of our freshly roasted coffee.
