Rainshadow Coffee expands to Paso Robles
–Sequim, Washington-based Rainshadow Coffee has launched a second roastery in Paso Robles, almost 1,000 miles south of its original location, according to a report by Daily Coffee News by Roast Magazine. The new roastery is located at 925 Paso Robles St. in Paso Robles.
Roasting started in Paso Robles this past fall. The company will transition its California production to a larger machine of its own design this spring, while also searching for a retail space to open a California cafe, according to Rainshadow Co-Owner Don Batcheller.
Batcheller noted some demographic similarities between Sequim and Paso Robles, including a strong population of retirees, but also potentially a bigger market for more adventurous coffees and profiles given the epicurean spirit of wine country.
