What makes Lariat coffee special? The answer is simple YOU, our customer. We believe in doing business the old-fashioned way, where you put the customer first and everything else will fall into line. We want your experience with Lariat to be extraordinary. From the time you place a coffee order, to the moment you take the first sip, we want your interaction with us to be a pleasure. We want you to enjoy doing business with us.

Lariat was founded in 2006 and operates under the guiding principles of courage, integrity and respect. Our business ethic is simple, if you are honest in work, thought and deed, appearances will take care of themselves. We work each day with the aim to surpass the expectations of all the folks we do business with; and we abide by the old cowboy saying “There’s right, and there’s wrong, and nothing in between.”

Lariat Coffee Roasters sits in the shadow of the North Cascades in the Old West town of Winthrop, Washington. We are surrounded by natural beauty and a community rich in character and history dating back to the 1800’s. It is here, in this place we call home, that Lariat combines good taste and hard work to bring you the perfect cup of coffee.
