About Boyer's Coffee Company
William Boyer, Sr. established Boyer Coffee in 1965 as a family-owned business. Soon after founding the company, he bought a vintage roaster and began making his own alterations. Boyer Sr. found that roasting in Colorado's high altitude created what he believed to be a superior flavor, which he attributed to less humidity and lower roasting temperatures. In 1976, Boyer Sr. purchased an historic schoolhouse on North Washington Street in Denver and changed the name of the company from Office Coffee to Boyer Coffee Company, Inc. Soon after, he converted the schoolhouse into a 26,000-square-foot roasterie stretching nearly 2.1 acres. The schoolhouse roasterie contains the administration offices, a brewing equipment service area, a packaging facility, three roasters, a green (raw coffee) bean warehouse, and a newly renovated store front with a community meeting area and outside patio.
