Melancholy Roasting, LLC is a small town roastery dedicated to roasting the best quality beans and getting those beans to customers as fresh as possible.


We Started out at the farmers market on the Ava square in March 2018. Using a small espresso machine and some pour-over coffee brewers, we were able to begin learning what it really takes to make great coffee.

After a couple of months at the Saturday morning sale, we realized how much we really love making coffee and wanted to find a way to get more involved in the process.

After lots of research, Matthew decided to move forward and purchase a roaster. In July 2018 Matthew began roasting in his garage.

At the beginning of November 2018 Caleb and Matthew opened the shop in Ava. All of Melancholy Roasting’s equipment and operations were moved to the new shop. Melancholy Roasting, LLC currently roasts coffee in the back room and sells beans, drinks and equipment in the shop!
