About us

Seven Coffee Roasters was started in a small cafe/roastery in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle in 2006 by Sean Lee.  Seven is named after Sean's grandmother, affectionately called "Nana" by grandkids.  Nana, in Japanese, means Seven.   

In 2009, the cafe became Makeda Coffee and Seven Coffee Roasters evolved into a wholesale coffee company supplying various cafes, markets, bakeries, and restaurants in the Puget Sound region.  We were affectionately known as the "small roaster for small businesses".  The moniker stuck. 

2012 brought a new retail location.  Established in 1922 and unofficially the second oldest market in Seattle, Seven Market & Cafe now sits where the former Boulevard Grocery once stood.  Inside you'll find a great selection of local goods, craft beer, fine wines, and a cool coffee bar.  We have a rotating selection of four taps that include local beers, ciders, and Seven Cold Brew in the Summer. 

Today Seven Coffee Roasters can still be found at many small businesses around Puget Sound.  We roast coffee daily in White Center.  Our focus is still on small businesses.  Our values of hard-work, integrity, and compassion still serve as a tribute to the woman our company is named after.

freaking awesome coffee

my favourite thing in Seattle was Biscuit Bitch, and this coffee was delish. Well done!

A Wonderful Decaf Option

I'd been enjoying the other blends offered here but wanted to cut back on my caffeine intake without losing the flavor and this blend really does the trick! It's a very enjoyable decaf substitute if you love the other blends Seven offers.

delicious coffee

The coffee was delivered super fast, very fragrant and fresh. I've had 2 of the three roasts and they were delicious, I imagine the third will be just as well. Will definitely be ordering again.
