Mothership Coffee Roasters first began in 2012 with the Sunrise Coffee family. Born from a desire to understand coffee roasting as a craft, we ordered our first roaster and beans, and began learning. We knew we wanted the same ethos which birthed Sunrise Coffee to carry into this new venture - ethical, sustainable sourcing for our beans, a high quality product that we enjoy as much as you, and care with each step of the process.
At the time, specialty coffee lacked the wide-spread popularity it currently enjoys. General knowledge about beans, farms, sourcing, roasting, and brewing was less available. We honed our craft through each roast and learned countless lessons about technique, method, ergonomics, and more as we discovered what it was to live and breathe the world of specialty coffee.
Over the years, we grew alongside the coffee community here in Las Vegas, and learned from professionals nationwide. As our knowledge grew, so too did our insight into sourcing, brewing, equipment, and the beautiful nuances every roast can offer. We developed our “sweet-spot” method, and decided to roast coffees hailing from a single region or farm (known as Single Origin) rather than blends. Roasting coffee as a Single Origin allows us to discover the distinct qualities of the region in the brewed cup, and make it shine.
When we were ready to expand the Mothership label as a roastery on our own, we opened our first location as Mothership Coffee in 2015 and developed a full roasting program.
Our philosophy has stayed rooted in our ethics for sustainable sourcing, farming, and people-friendly practices - from where each bean was born, to the cup in your hands. Perfecting a roast in flavor so as to highlight the region it came from is our goal, and we put countless hours into testing and tasting our beans. In our bakery, we focus on delivering rustic-style, handmade items from scratch, with ingredients from high-quality producers whose origin ethics match our own. Our fruits and veggies are sourced locally whenever available, and we provide several vegan and gluten-free items daily.
It has been our pleasure to grow alongside our city as more and more people discover what coffee can be, and how exciting the world of specialty coffee is. We are proud to be the longest-running family owned coffee company in the Las Vegas valley, and we’re glad to welcome you into our ever-expanding community of specialty roasters and providers.
