Honeymoon Bay Coffee Roasters announces grand opening

Local coffee roasting facility set for grand opening on Whidbey Island later this month.

The people of Oak Harbor will soon enjoy fresh locally-roasted coffee.  Local businessman and Roast Master Mike Donohoe will launch Honeymoon Bay Coffee Roasters at 1100 SW Bowmer, Suite A101, Oak Harbor, WA 98277 on Saturday, August 9, 2008 from 9 a.m. to Noon.  The company caters predominantly to commercial distributors and local businesses that sell and serve coffee to the public.  A small storefront will be open several hours each day; so that people may sample any of the 21 specialty coffees they offer.  Mike has always enjoyed the social interaction that happens around a cup of coffee and looks forward to introducing his blends to the public.

“The pairing of coffee and conversation is something that I have always looked forward to” says Mike.  Having enjoyed coffee and conversation since childhood, he has had a life-long admiration for the beverage.  Even while serving in VAQ-141 during his Navy service in Oak Harbor, he never lost sight of his passion for coffee.  It was during that time that Mike began courting his wife Katie, and they both enjoyed many local coffee brews and sought to learn more. 

After six years serving as Roast Master and Director of Roasting for another local coffee roasting company, Mike decided it was time to pursue his passion for small batch European style coffee roasting.  “It’s all about the roast” says Mike, standing in front of an impressive, eclectic looking roaster that he rebuilt  himself.  All 21 of the company’s  specialty coffees are roasted here, and sport unique names such as: Buzz Bomb, Dead Man Walking, and Moonstruck.

Make sure to stop by Honeymoon Bay Coffee Roasters on Saturday, August 9, 2008 from 9 a.m. to Noon.  You’ll learn what European style small batch roasting is all about while enjoying a delicious cup of coffee.
