COMMUNITY FROM THE START

CAFE CULTURE

We started our career in coffee at the cafe level in 2011 welcoming you into the world of coffee. Meeting customers that became regulars is what signed and sealed our career in coffee. These relationships are everything and is still the best part of the job today.

Whether we meet you at an event, exchange emails, or are roasting and shipping coffee, we are humbled to be sourcing and sharing coffees with you that we know you will love.

Have we met?

HELLO!

My name is Bryant and I am the roaster here at Relative.

Minnesota grown, I have been working in coffee shops and roasteries since 2011. If you are a local to Minneapolis, the chance I have roasted coffee for you at one brand or another is highly likely!

Relative is a project that combines my passion of roasting, design, and photography to create a fun, welcoming, and tasty brand that I am excited to share with you all.

When I am not operating Relative I am working in coffee education teaching others how to roast coffee. If you are an aspiring roaster thinking of exploring the business, you should join me and the Mill City team for a class at Mill City Roasters: Roasting 101!

AUGUST 2023

NEW BEGINNINGS

Plans for Relative started at the end of 2022 and finally at the beginning of August 2023 we launched our shop!

Our operations are primarily e-commerce shipping direct to you, the customer. As growth continues we have seen opportunities to be part of subscription spotlights, and one off pop up events - which is our favorite way to meet you!

LOOKING FORWARD

As we continue to grow, we see more and more possibilities around events, branding, and sustainability.

Our first anniversary is August of 2024 sees us switch from generic bags with printed labels to recyclable full color printed bags from Roastar packaging. The next step could be compostable bags as the technology in packaging continues to grow and become more affordable for smaller companies.

What's next? Follow along and find out!

THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING RELATIVE!
