“The Blue Star is an active lifestyle cafe,” owner George Starks says. Located in Canyon Rim, the cafe’s outdoor enthusiast patrons appreciate not only the cafe’s local-roots ambiance, but also the consistently good coffee that roaster, Brady Burt, brews.

“We work with a bean distributor who specializes in doing business with small, family-owned coffee growers and plantations,” George notes. “We buy all organic, single-origin beans and roast in small batches.” Brady, George says, “has developed a passion for lighter roasts and we’ve been able to cultivate a strong following of people who like lighter roasts.:

Blue Star sells their modestly priced coffee by the pound, and because they roast in such small batches, customers receive absolutely fresh-roasted beans.
