Pure Bean - Rapid City, SD


Mark Royalty and Nick Reid started Pure Bean roasters out of Mark’s garage in 2013. The company was birthed out of their  passion for quality coffee and to show the  coffee world the excellent results that can  come from fine air-roasted beans. From the  first batch, the craft of roasting was  continually perfected and the level of quality  has been raised to a point that few people have experienced with true air-roasted beans.


Each bag of coffee is freshly roasted to exact specifications, leaving you with a smooth, balanced, perfect cup every time and, because of the effects of convection heat in the roasting process, the acids that often lead to upset stomach are greatly reduced. High quality beans and the perfect roast mean an outstanding cup of coffee.

Essence of Coffee - Rapid City, SD


With a clear objective to provide ‘great coffee in a casual atmosphere’ our family business began in 2007 with Café 54 in Perth, Australia. Our passion for specialty coffee demanded a commitment to knowledge and skills that ultimately led us to roasting. Michael and Dale Fewson, father and son in partnership, traveled to the USA to learn all they could about roasting. With professional training by a leading specialty coffee roaster and Q-grader, Mané Alves, they returned to Australia and began roasting in earnest.


As any world-class chefs will tell you, a culinary masterpiece begins with the quality and freshness of ingredients. At Essence of Coffee we source only Arabica varietals, grown in the most exacting conditions. We predominantly choose micro-lot coffees featuring exceptional taste profiles identified by Q-grade standards to be higher than 85.
