Barking Dog Roasters

More Bark, Less Bite

Since 1995 (with a couple of bumps and grinds in the road) Barking Dog has been providing high quality, freshly roasted coffee products to the Sonoma Valley community. For almost 20 years Barking Dog has purchased only premium Arabica beans and has roasted them to perfection in-shop to ensure absolute freshness. Our Roastmaster has been roasting coffee for us for over 10 years, having learned from a master roaster on our premises with our Probat Roaster. We roast in small batches which, though less efficient than large batches, helps ensure that the release is perfectly timed to capture the flavor profile of the particular bean variety at its peak. By roasting just-in-time for bar service and shipments we guarantee freshness.

In the meantime Barking Dog has become a central meeting place and event venue for locals and out-of-towners alike. Local entertainers find Barking Dog to be an ideal small-setting venue for weekend and occasional after hours shows. The atmosphere is invitingly funky, the people are friendly and service oriented, and the products are very, very good.

I assure you that if you’re looking for great coffee, you’ve found it. On the other hand, if you’re looking for trendy, you won’t find it here. If you’re looking for gimmicks, or the latest technology, or the most exotic this or that, this is not the place. Barking Dog is about putting a fine edge on the basics. As we have put the better part of 20 years into this (with the help of some brilliant coffee savants), we believe we have mastered the art of the cup and of roasting coffee to perfection, brewing it just right and serving it with pleasure.

Magic was in the air today.

Developing profiles and trying new coffees. It's the best way to spend a lazy Sunday morning.

Starting the weekend off with some natural processes Ethiopian Guji. Characterized by strong fruity and citrusy notes it makes a beautiful early morning cup.

Beautiful art for a beautiful day.
