It all began in Boston, where Paul VanGundy discovered the delicacy that is locally roasted coffee. That continued when he and his family moved to Charlotte and he enjoyed the different roasts around the Queen City. There was something so special, soothing, and exciting about a quality roast compared to your run of the mill coffee.
Paul was hooked. He researched, read, and spoke with roasters to discover the science and craft behind roasting. After knowing the differences between first crack, second cracks and all the nuances of roasting he took it to his stove with a hand roaster. There he labored over the beans, manually moving them around to learn the sight and sound to each of the roasts.
Now with a larger roaster, Paul creates an even and delicious roast using specialty coffees from around the world. This coffee is commonly sold within 14 days of roast-to-cup to guarantee the most fresh and delicious cup of coffee from Five Points Roasters.
