Other Brother Roasters is the third generation in a family that has been roasting since the mid 1900s. Grandpa Reimer roasted peanuts and sunflower seeds who then passed on the business to his son-in-law who also roasts almonds, flax seed, peanut kernels and much more. In 2011, after having been exposed to how good a quality cup of coffee can taste, but realizing that the nearest quality roaster was several hundred to a thousand miles away, Other Brother Roasters was born.
