About Us

Solstice Roasters is chef owned and foodie driven – serving restaurants, cafes, institutions, and individuals around Cleveland for over a quarter century. Our longevity comes from being able to match ethical, sustainable coffees to the food palates presented in Northeast Ohio and beyond.

Solstice acquires the coffees that we roast and distribute through Direct Trade means. We buy and pay for all coffees the year before harvest at a living wage price. This allows the people laboring in the fields to harvest and process to continue their dedicated work in a fair and equitable environment.

Once the coffee reaches our roastery, we roast every batch to the bean’s fullest potential. The majority of our coffee is medium roast, though variations are always tested. 

At the final destination, coffee is served as a part of service or as the main event in the case of cafes.  Either way, we like to think that our ethical coffees are helping sustain businesses around the Midwest.
