Great place, conversational staff and diverse menu. Who else has Yerba Matte available! Even late night, just before closing the staff was happy to serve, not just accommodating.

I drove down here to specifically pick up some Santa Barbara roasting coffee to bring home. The bags are priced at 14 $15, 16 depending on what you get. When I took my son to the grocery store later that day I saw that they were $10.50 in the grocery store for the same size bag and names. The real... More

We have been buying our coffee here for the last 15 years. Custom Grinding makes their distinctive blends even more enjoyable. Our favorite morning brew is Rincon Red, but the State Street and French Roast blends are enjoyed as well. Santa Barbara has lots of Coffee Emporiums but we are most at home here. Funky atmosphere, with ample seating and... More

Fantastic! I avoided coffee shops for a very long time mostly because of the poor quality, burned flavors that left me feeling super jittery. That has changed! Santa Barbara Roasting Company is my new favorite. Full and deep taste without the bitter bite. A lift without a jolt. Of course, if you want a jolt, just tell them to boost... More

Enroute from SFO to LA, we have to stop by Santa Barbara and this place totally solved our caffeine craving! They serve great coffee and because they roast the beans inhouse, the store's aroma was wonderful. Definitely will recommend anyone who stop over!

Loads of blends, choose carefully! The state Street blend is very smokey if you like that type of coffee.

I went in to get my husband a mocha. The person that took my order was unfriendly and acted as if I was burdening him by asking if they had coconut syrup for the mocha. No eye contact, no "thank you", no "enjoy" or "we will have it ready for you shortly". The lady that prepared the coffee was nicer.... More
