We have been buying our coffee here for the last 15 years. Custom Grinding makes their distinctive blends even more enjoyable. Our favorite morning brew is Rincon Red, but the State Street and French Roast blends are enjoyed as well. Santa Barbara has lots of Coffee Emporiums but we are most at home here. Funky atmosphere, with ample seating and... More

A nice big cafe where you can sit down to relax and sip your favourtie beverage. The baristas are very friendly and is able to make your beverage with your special requests. For the coffee lovers, they roast their coffee. When I visit Santa Barbara I always go to Santa Barbara Roasting Company located in a very nice part of... More

Fantastic! I avoided coffee shops for a very long time mostly because of the poor quality, burned flavors that left me feeling super jittery. That has changed! Santa Barbara Roasting Company is my new favorite. Full and deep taste without the bitter bite. A lift without a jolt. Of course, if you want a jolt, just tell them to boost... More

Enroute from SFO to LA, we have to stop by Santa Barbara and this place totally solved our caffeine craving! They serve great coffee and because they roast the beans inhouse, the store's aroma was wonderful. Definitely will recommend anyone who stop over!

Loads of blends, choose carefully! The state Street blend is very smokey if you like that type of coffee.

I went in to get my husband a mocha. The person that took my order was unfriendly and acted as if I was burdening him by asking if they had coconut syrup for the mocha. No eye contact, no "thank you", no "enjoy" or "we will have it ready for you shortly". The lady that prepared the coffee was nicer.... More

We stopped for a pick-me-up after two wine tastings and loved the coffee. I had the best latte I've ever had here. Nice relaxing atmosphere with a great sound system and interesting murals on the walls.

I always try to seek out local coffee shops when visiting new cities and this was very easy to find with lots of parking. The coffee aroma was amazing and the cappuccino was one of the best ever.

The food and drinks are yummy but the space does not feel as cozy as it could. Coffee roasting smell is wonderful. Car exhaust from adjacent parking lot can be un-appetizing.
