Discovering Backstory Coffee Roasters: A Tale of Coffee and Connection

Since its inception in 2014 in St. Paul, Backstory Coffee Roasters has been quietly perfecting the art of roasting. However, the real buzz began in the fall of 2022 when it unveiled its brand-new location, on the ground floor of The Duffey apartments in North Loop Minneapolis,

What sets Backstory apart isn't just the beans they brew; it's the narrative they craft with every cup. Formerly known as Bootstrap Coffee Roasters, Backstory's journey over the past decade has transformed it into more than just a coffee shop; it's a story waiting to be told.

Stepping inside the Minneapolis location, you'll find a cozy corner within the apartment complex's lobby that's now home to Backstory Coffee Roasters. Here, the emphasis is on collaboration and storytelling, fostering connections not only with coffee but also with the people who cultivate it.

The menu at Backstory's Minneapolis location boasts an array of delights, from classic espresso beverages to cold brew, pour-overs, and specialty concoctions. Hungry? They've got you covered with a selection of hot sandwiches, pastries, and grab-and-go treats.

But what truly sets Backstory apart is the ever-changing seasonal options, including vegan-friendly choices and unique flavor combinations that tantalize your taste buds like nowhere else.

And it's not just about what's in your cup; it's also what you can take home. Backstory offers a range of merchandise, from coffee mugs and cozy socks to delectable chocolate bars. Coffee connoisseurs will delight in whole-bean coffee bags and exquisite gift sets.

The story doesn't end with the coffee; it's woven into every aspect, even the décor. A stunning gold tree logo graces the bar area, while a customized green case cradles their La Marzocco KB90 espresso machine.

In the words of Backstory's founder -from an interview with Daily Coffee News - :

 "We arrived at a name that pointed to our shared human desire for stories and their ability to foster understanding, and therefore deeper connections between people." 

This sentiment echoes through every sip and every interaction at Backstory Coffee Roasters, where the love of coffee is the backdrop to a narrative of connection and community. Come visit them today in the lobby of The Duffey, or check out their online store to order coffee, chocolate and more!
