Food & Wine magazine selected "The Best Coffee in Every State" and Richmond's own Blanchard's Coffee Roasting Company was named the best in Virginia.
"Here is the absolute best kind of roaster—relentlessly focused, but also accommodating to the curious public. Working from an industrial section of the city's northern fringe, one of the state's top operations offers Friday public cuppings, and tries to keep its door open as much as possible," Food & Wine wrote.
David Blanchard founded Blanchard’s Coffee Roasting Co. in January 2005. Read more about the company here.
The company's revenues have quadrupled since 2010, and the business will soon move to a larger roasting facility.
