About Us

At JAVA-GOURMET and Keuka Lake Coffee Roasters, we live, work and play against a backdrop of natural beauty. Overlooking Keuka Lake in New York, we are passionate about our company and the products we create!

We established Keuka Lake Coffee Roasters in 2003 after moving here from Boston to start our business. Brian was in the coffee industry when we met and roasts all of our coffees to order. We small batch roast 100% Arabica beans, sourced from the country of origin. Once roasted, our coffees are completely air cooled to retain the natural coffee oils which hold not only flavor, but “good for you” antioxidants. Each type of coffee is roasted to a specific temperature and time. All blends are made after the roast. All of our flavored coffees are proprietary recipes that we have personally developed. 

In 2007 JAVA-GOURMET was born after the highly successful release of our Original JAVA RUBS. It is an award winning, artisanal, coffee-based specialty food company. Our products are unique and delicious. We are proud to have created a complete line of products using coffee’s culinary attribute of being a natural flavor enhancer. Our product development is based on culinary research, family recipes and our own creativity and vision in the kitchen. Coffee adds a depth of flavor that is like no other. It also will help to caramelize the surface of the food you cook. 

All of our products are small batch produced and coffee is the primary in every JAVA-GOURMET product. Every product is All Natural, MSG, Gluten and Trans Fat free. Besides the well known JAVA RUBS, JAVA-GOURMET produces 30+ products including sauces and marinades, a brine, dessert topper, finishing salt, JAVA GRIND and JAVA BARK, a delicious confection of espresso beans and chocolate.

In 2011, we launched the Seneca Salt Company.  we had been using a locally sourced, unique culinary flake salt which is produced from a fresh water brine from salt veins under Seneca Lake.  We now offer a line of infused salts including a Grapevine Smoked Salt which may be the only one out there based on our research.  The line has been very successful and a bath salt line is soon to launch.

In January of 2014, Brian and I combined our business partnership with a marriage after 10 years together. Our journey continues and we are excited to join our families after 10 years together sharing our love and building our business.

We are committed to working within the Finger Lakes community and supporting other local businesses and charitable organizations. We are proud of our involvement with Milly’s Pantry, Keuka Comfort Care Home, Finger Lakes Culinary Bounty, Pride of New York, Penn Yan Elks Lodge #1722, Keuka Lake Association, Penn Yan American Legion Post #355, and Specialty Food Association.

We sell our coffees directly to you via this web site and now in our recently opened Company Store overlooking beautiful Keuka Lake. We also sell our coffees and specialty products wholesale to fine restaurants, inns, wineries, specialty shops, and gourmet markets.

 

We gladly invite you to contact us regarding our products.  Think Coffee Outside Of The Cup…
