Morrisville, NC – Thanks to longtime reader Jackie Holcombe for pointing out that Muddy Dog Coffee in Morrisville was just named one of the top 17 small roasters in the U.S by CNN/Money.

Muddy Dog

Muddy Dog is part of a new movement in coffee – microroasting. That means small batches (27 pounds or less) for quick, local consumption.

Microroasting fits in with the buy-local movement. The emphasis is on freshness and supporting growth of the local economy.

Right now, four companies dominate the U.S. coffee market. But micro-roasters like Muddy Dog are adding 1-3% more to the U.S. total roasting capacity every year.

From Seattle to Morrisville, NC, small roasters are raising a real challenge to the established order in the coffee business.

Raise a Cup

Muddy Dog sells wholesale and retail from their website. The CNN/Money story is bound to be good for business.

So raise a cup of the exquisite bean to Muddy Dog, a small business that’s brewing up big things right here in our neighborhood.

    Fell in love with their coffee thanks to a friend of my husband. If you have the time to stop in for a visit – DO! I learned more about coffee in one afternoon that I had my whole life!

    Muddy Dog is also available by the cup at the Western Wake Farmer’s Market, Saturday mornings in Carpenter Village. Another great reason to shop there!
