About AKA Coffee

John Laird, Brian W. Jones, Björg Laird and Rosie Laird have been working together since 2013, roasting coffee that has been recognized by Sprudge, Eater, Wall Street Journal and San Francisco Chronicle. 


AKA Coffee sources green coffee in partnership with talented importers working with hundreds of farmers, most still picking individual coffee cherries by hand.  With respect for the miracle that goes into producing green coffee that meets their quality standards, AKA thoughtfully roasts the coffee to develop the right balance of body, acidity and sweetness in your cup. John, Brian, Björg and Rosie are looking forward to finally sharing their coffee with the community in their first retail coffee bar in the Castro Valley Marketplace.
