Terra Nova Organic Coffee Roasters was founded in a barn on an organic farm in Gilsum, New Hampshire in 2005. When the original founders of Terra Nova decided to move on to new pursuits, one of their young baristas and her entrepreneurial husband decided to jump in and learn the craft. In the spring of 2011, the coffee roaster was moved in the back of a pickup truck across the River Road and into the Murphy’s red barn where the business grew, new coffees were introduced, and Terra Nova made its mark on the regional coffee scene.
In 2017 Terra Nova made another big move into our custom brick and mortar roastery and espresso bar downtown, allowing the roasting operation to increase capacity while giving customers an exceptional cafe experience featuring our on-site roasted, high quality organic beans.
Over the years we are proud to have refined our process, from sourcing to blending to roasting, from packaging, efficiency, to community relationships and more. Our crew has grown from a tight knit group of family members who worked long and wacky hours between baseball games and baby feedings and business meetings, to a professional crew of passionate coffee pros who know our coffees in and out, and craft the next batch with care.
From day one Terra Nova has been dedicated to offering the highest quality coffee experience to customers while never compromising on our commitment to be 100% organic, ethically oriented, and kind and collaborative with our customers, our crew, and the community.
We believe in the good that coffee can do - from farm families across the world to kitchen tables and busy cafes. We are so glad to share great coffee with you!
