“You deserve better coffee.”

Sidecar’s handcrafted coffee is roasted in small batches in Cedar Falls, Iowa, resulting in an ultra-fresh product with a difference you can taste in the cup.

Owner Jeff Vander Zanden prizes traceability, taking origin trips to visit coffee producers in Mexico and beyond. He’s also experimenting with direct trade, a transaction that not only puts more money in the farmers’ hands, but also builds a beneficial connection between the grower and the roaster. It all adds up to better coffee in your cup.
