About Aurora's Cup Coffee

Aurora's Cup Coffee was founded on the idea that coffee does not have to be expensive or require expensive brewing apparatus. With our coffee you can get that delicious coffee shop flavor and texture from your home brew.

Meet Bernie our Engineer Roastmaster

Hi there,

I'm Bernie, and welcome to Aurora's Cup Coffee. I'm a mechanical engineer by trade.

How does coffee roasting fit in with mechanical engineering?

Turns out the coffee roasting process is filled with all kinds of engineery-type variables – time, temperature profiles, bean origin, bean density in addition to things that fill the senses like color, flavor, scents, even sound as the beans roast from green to brown. There is a tremendous amount of rich data in all of it and gathering it and making a process repeatable and enjoyable pushed all my “science buttons”. I have created many spreadsheets and databases dedicated to my hobby.

About Bernie

Our Founding

In December 2020, I decided to start Aurora’s Cup Coffee. It’s a small operation. We only roast beans to order and keep no roasted stock on hand (except for the occasional trade show). You get fresh roasted coffee, in your favorite origin blend, roasted and ground to your liking.

You might see Morgana and I around at different coffee shows or food trade shows (like Chocolate and Coffee Fest). Stop by and say 'hi' and taste a sample.
