Who We Are
Retrograde Coffee Roasters was founded in 2014 by baristas Danielle Connor and Casey Lanski. Back then, we roasted our coffee in our home kitchen and would truck our coffee cart around to countless farmer’s markets and events. Retrograde is going back to the basics of what we love: specialty coffee, community connections and hand made provisions. Our focus is in the details with our small batch coffee roasting and value-based approach to everything we do.
As we move forward, we maintain our focus on the details and how it impacts the world around us. We are proud to be the first Green Certified coffee roasting company and coffee shop in Sonoma County. We strive to improve the lives of others by extending kindness to all, creating sustainable careers in coffee, giving back to our local community, schools, organizations and nonprofits and committing to taking care of our Earth through our green business practices.
