Proudly serving Stringbean Coffee!


We are proud to be serving Stringbean Coffee!  Local, Independent, Artisan, Fair Trade

Pete started roasting coffee at home for his own consumption in March 2011, four months later Stringbean Coffee Company was started in the Summer 2011 and featured live roasts at local farmer’s markets and the demand continued to grow. Stringbean was originally Guitar Strings & Coffee Beans. The original plan was to incorporate the love of music with the love of coffee, selling vintage guitars and coffee.

From the beginning the purpose was clear… produce a great coffee,
be socially minded and have fun doing it, very much like that of Ben & Jerry.

Stringbean is part of the St. Louis emerging coffee scene and St. Louis as a whole. It’s not just about the coffee. It’s about the community and culture too. We are proud to be independently owned and operated in this big, corporate world where things happen without the personal touch. We are real people. We are kooky, approachable and love coffee. We proudly sponsor the music calendar on KDHX. And yes, we roast coffee to music!
