'Badger Brew' brings bean roasting in-house
Saturday, December 14, 2019
It’s a busy Friday morning at Badger Brew Coffee Loft. Heather Haller is going back and forth behind the counter, steaming, stirring and slinging hot drinks.
“Sorry, I haven’t had time to get adequately caffeinated,” she says, apologizing to a reporter waiting for an interview.
The self-described barista/owner/coffee evangelist and now roaster mom—better known to many as Heather Brew—reaches around a drip coffee urn to pump some fresh brew into her cup.
Not only did she brew it herself, she roasted it too, as part of her new venture, Woodland Coffee Roasters.
“Nobody around here was doing it,” said Haller, explaining her foray into in-house roasting.
