What and Who is One Up One Down?
We’re a pico-sized coffee roastery (very small), interested in connecting people with an upgraded coffee experience; concsiously-sourced, well-balanced coffee.
Like our coffee, we seek balance in life; trading glowing screens and office chairs with backcountry or backroads sun, on two wheels or two feet (and four paws). And never without a great cup of coffee close by.
After spending a year and a half apprenticing with a venerable pioneer in the third-wave roastery-cafe concept, I pursued other career paths while continuing to roast great coffee through One Up One Down.
Why “One Up One Down?”
The name, as one might guess from the logo, was inspired by my dog’s ears. But it embodies a simple concept that I attempt to apply universally: Balance. Work balanced with play. Sunk in a chair staring at a glowing screen balanced with feet on the dirt gazing at a glowing sunset.
A good cup of coffee has balance. A good life has balance. Find your balance.
