Meet Ian and Kellie Wahl, the husband and wife duo behind Alternate Route Coffee Co. Kellie is the face behind all things social media as well as the bagging, labeling and coordinating orders while Ian is the mastermind behind the roaster. We love all things coffee & adventure and spend as much time as possible in the outdoors camping, hiking, canoeing, biking, snowboarding or snowshoeing.
Ian's love for coffee started with your standard drip machine and the cheapest ground coffee a university student could afford. Luckily, his taste in coffee evolved and so did his appreciation for fresh ground, high quality beans. In 2016 Ian was gifted a personal sized coffee roasting machine that sparked a new love for not only fresh ground coffee but now fresh roasted coffee as well.
We believe everyone should have the chance to brew and enjoy fresh roasted coffee. Coffee beans purchased in your local grocery store can be upwards of 1 year or more from the date it was roasted to the time it hits your coffee cup. At Alternate Route Coffee Co. we roast weekly to guarantee only the freshest coffee beans hit your grinder each day. So come on, break away from your regular routine and take the Alternate Route, we promise you won't be disappointed.
