Who are we, you may ask? Peritus Coffee Roasters was founded in Fort Collins from a deep-rooted love of home roasting and a lifetime of conscious sourcing. After eight years of home-roasting, we knew we had to share our love of craft coffee with others to bring you a delightful cup of coffee each and every day. We love to celebrate the nuances of each region we source from, celebrate the methods used for farming and processing there, and, even more, thank the farmers who grew the beautiful beans through proper and fair sourcing methods and, of course, roasting the beans to highlight the beautiful features they bring to the table. What does “peritus” mean? In Latin, it is defined as skillful and practiced…the skill and practice to bring you an excellent cup goes through many hands from the farmer, to the processor, distributor, roaster and coffee preparer…we celebrate all those clever hands! We’ve just opened our brick and mortar location at 1833 E Harmony, Unit 20 in Fort Collins. We’re in the Southwest-most corner (our door faced south). Come say hi and try out some coffees.
