25 YEARS IN THE MAKING
Once upon a time, twenty-five years ago to be exact, we opened a coffee house/drive-thru in the beautiful, small town of Paradise, California. Yes, that is its name. Things were good; our kids grew up there (we all still work together), we made a lot of friends, and we were happy. From roasting our own coffee to baking our own bread and pastries, we have always strived to exceed our customer's expectations.
Seven years ago, we began testing and tasting a new coffee and concept. It took us almost a year to perfect NorCal Nitro. As with everything else we did we kept everything in-house; roasting the coffee, brewing, cold steeping, and finally, canning/kegging. We began selling at our Café and soon requests from other coffee shops started to come in. We then branched off into cans and started supplying stores in the area. With added growth we added a distributor to expand to all of Northern California.
Then, on November 8, 2018, disaster hit. Paradise, along with other surrounding communities were almost wiped off the map in the tragic Camp Fire. We gathered our two dogs and a garbage bag of clothes and luckily escaped unharmed—but like many others—we lost everything; our café, our roasting and canning facility, and our home. We came out beaten, but not out. It was time to buckle up and we reset in the neighboring town of Chico. We built a state-of-the-art roastery and canning facility. All of our NorCal Nitro customers stood by us and we are eternally grateful. NorCal Nitro continues to serve all of northern California with both cans and kegs. We look forward to this next stage of our lives and new adventures it will bring.
