Our History


30 years ago in the historic Charlotte neighborhood of Dilworth, the original Dilworth Coffee House opened its doors, introducing specialty coffee roasted onsite, to the city of Charlotte. We introduced our coffees to one customer at a time, helping them find their own great coffee experience to enjoy, while simultaneously laying the groundwork for the specialty coffee industry. Our brand foundation is built on this simple goal of trying to satisfy each customer with great coffee.

Today, we're an artisan coffee roaster, selling our coffee both locally and nationally. We are also a wholesale coffee distributor to coffee shops, cafes, specialty retail and hospitality companies. At our headquarters in Raleigh, NC, we also have a training center where we host coffee classes and events. At Dilworth, it's all good!
