Coalmine Spindle has been a part of the Taylor Maid Farms family for 10 years! He started in production canning the coffee for retail and as a Support Roaster. Coalmine is now our Head Roaster. He grew up in San Francisco, but has lived in Sonoma County for 16 years now. He moved up north to attend Sonoma State University, where he graduated with a degree in psychology in 2000. He lives in Santa Rosa with his wife of 4 years, Kate. He started off in the coffee industry as a barista, which is a talent he used while working at Howard’s Station Café in Occidental. His favorite coffees tend to be seasonal Central Americans, like Honduras or Guatemala. He’s also the Bass Player and Singer in the band The Chelsea Set, which plays locally as well as does a West Coast tour every year. It’s also the music we used in each of our Really Good Coffee brewing videos. Coalmine also helps lead our Behind the Scenes Roasting Tour, so you’ll have a chance to see him in action if you join one of our tours.
