Founded in 1997 by Steven and Fred Hebert, Sacred Grounds began as a quaint downtown Arcata, Ca coffee house with a 12 kilo Probat roaster as the main attraction. One of their early hires was Beth Dominick, who began her first shift as a dishwasher in November, 1997. After climbing the ladder she became President and green coffee buyer, positions she held until August of 2011 when she retired as President. Elizabeth is now the official historian of Sacred Grounds Organic Coffee Roasters and also serves as compliance director for Sacred Grounds' various certifications.

Roasting coffee for our coffeehouse a few days a week quickly turned into roasting coffee every day to fill orders for local restaurants and grocery stores. Arcata is also a stopping point for many tourists visiting the redwoods, pretty soon we were getting calls from around the country from people asking us to ship our freshly roasted coffees to their doors.

All of this roasting was more than our downtown coffeehouse could handle, so we packed up our roaster and moved into our current facility in 2001. In 2005 we expanded our roasting plant and added a walk up coffee bar and offer freshly roasted coffee right out of the cooling tray.

Sacred Grounds is a micro-roaster, producing less than 100,000 pounds a year. In 2006 we were recognized by Roast Magazine as one of the top micro-roasters in the country as a runner-up in their Roaster Of The Year competition.

Our coffees are roasted 22 pounds at a time, six days a weeks. Fresh coffee is our goal, and we place a production date on every bag so our customers know when their coffee was roasted.
