Our Story

Your friends at Terra Nova

Terra Nova Organic Coffee Roasters was founded in a old red barn on an organic farm in New Hampshire in 2005.  When the original founders of Terra Nova decided to move on to new pursuits in 2011, one of their young baristas and her entrepreneurial husband decided to jump in and continue the craft out of their own little red barn nearby.

In 2017 Terra Nova created a custom brick and mortar roastery and espresso bar in downtown Keene, allowing the roasting operation to grow while welcoming customers to experience the process and enjoy an exceptional cafe.

Over the years we are proud to have refined our process by sourcing and roasting the very best beans while focusing on ethical business practices, community relationships, and making a positive impact through what we do. Our crew has grown from a tight knit group of family members who worked long hours between baseball games and baby feedings, to an dedicated team of passionate coffee pros who know our roasts in and out, and craft every 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 organic, ethically oriented, and kind and collaborative with our producers, customers, crew, and 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!

With gratitude,
Jeff, Eliza and the whole Terra Nova Organic Coffee Roasters Crew
