After his first year of business, Matt Parmelee, owner of Redstart Roasters, temporarily stopped production because he wasn’t totally satisfied with the taste of the coffee coming from his new roasting machine. He reopened several months later only after it met his exacting standards. That’s all you need to know about Matt to know how seriously he takes his coffee and his business. Today, Redstart Roasters stands for the highest quality coffee that’s also grown and harvested in a sustainable and responsible way.
It’s clear from his brand and business approach that Matt Parmelee is bringing something unique to the Pittsburgh coffee roasting landscape. His company, Redstart Roasters, is the only fully dedicated bird-friendly coffee roastery in our region and only one of a small handful in the entire country. His partnerships with local organizations, such as Pearl Parrot Rescue and the National Aviary, as well as with national groups like the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center, demonstrate his company’s dedication to supporting the sustainability and preservation of bird habitats. But don’t mistake Redstart Roasters for just another fundraising or charity coffee business. Matt is firmly dedicated to bringing only the very best coffee to market. It just happens that the majority of it will be bird-friendly in order to promote his goal of ecological conservation while achieving the highest standards of quality and taste. Matt’s passion for roasting and his love for birds and the environment shine through in our discussion. If you want to feel good about the coffee you buy while enjoying every last sip, then Redstart Roasters should be part of your regular coffee drinking routine.
