Windmill Coffee Roasters operate as a wholesale specialty coffee roaster hailing from Ames, IA. Born in 2017, they pull from decades of experience within their small team.


Windmill is learning. Learning about the realities of the farmers they work with. They could say that we know it all, but they don’t and they don’t think anyone does. Right now is an interesting time in the coffee industry and Windmill is doing their best to listen, to talk with their importers, to watch what their colleagues are doing, and to keep an open mind/heart. There is always something to learn and learning the nuts and bolts of their craft is near and dear to Windmill. 


They are building relationships. Windmill strive to be the best partner to their wholesale customers. They are nurturing relationships with the coffee producers. Building a strong, reliable, and consistent commitment to farmers is something they are serious about. Windmill has a few now, that they have built through a varied history in coffee, but they want more. Windmill hopes to work with the same farmers year in and year out. To do that they will also need strong, honest, and open lines of communication with importers. They are happy to say that they work with some really great companies. More importantly, work with some stellar people at these companies and Windmill is sure that they will help them get to where they want to go.


Finally, Windmill are just some good people from Iowa. They try to be nice, work hard, be honest, and spend time with their people.
