Mills Coffee Roasting was founded in 1860 and is one of the nation’s oldest family-owned and operated roasters. Mills Coffee is committed to providing their customers with the highest quality beans from farms that are committed to sustainable farming and processing practices.
Mills was founded by Thomas Mills, who emigrated from England in 1860 and promptly opened shop as Mills Tea and Butter Co. That business thrived and Thomas decided to expand to include his new favorite beverage, coffee. Ever the perfectionist (and occasional control freak), Thomas purchased his first coffee roaster in the late 1800s / early 1900s and devoted himself to mastering his signature roast, Mills Blend. Eventually, Thomas’ son, Fredrick, and son-in-law, Gordon, purchased the business from him. In the early 1950s Fredrick’s son, Kenny, followed suit and purchased the plant with his wife, Alice. In the early 1980s, G4, Mills’ current owners, stepped up to bring Mills into a new era of coffee as art, starting with the introduction of decaf. Within a few years of taking over, Susan, affectionately known as TheQweenBean, and her brother, David, expanded their offerings beyond Mills Blend to include a variety of fantastic single origins, exceptional decafs, powerful dark roasts, and exotic blends and flavors. Susan took over the financial and creative dimensions of the company while David mastered the art of roasting and efficient plant design. Within a few years of assuming leadership, they tripled their volume and designed a new roasting plant that actually increased production while improving the quality of their roasts. In addition to internal improvements, Susan and David went on an aggressive campaign to educate customers on the best brewing techniques and sophisticated coffee drinks. Today, G5 is learning the ropes.
