The Sky Mountain Coffee Story



At Sky Mountain Coffee, we’re proud to micro-roast fresh specialty grade coffee for coffee drinkers all over the country. We’re serious about making sure every cup from us is an adventure for your senses.

Sky Mountain Coffee’s roots started decades ago with a passion for coffee. Founder Craig Blaney operated an independent coffee shop in the late 1990s through the early 2000s in Davidson, N.C., a college town just north of Charlotte. 

The shop was a vital part of the community for six years, garnering coffee shop regulars who were nature and human-powered sports enthusiasts. Craig then took a break from the coffee world until 2009. An executive from a Mooresville, N.C. based company, approached Craig about opening a full-service coffee shop for employees.

In 2010, Sky Mountain Coffee was born, opening its first café in the corporate headquarters. To deliver this coffee experience, we focused on specialty grade, on-site roasted coffees, teas, blender drinks, and healthy snacks.

Today, Craig and Chris Newsom, Head Roaster, are bringing the Sky Mountain Coffee product to coffee lovers around the country. The same principles from Craig’s coffee shop are still part of everything we do. We believe coffee is much more than a beverage—it’s a lifestyle. Experience the Sky Mountain Coffee story today by ordering your first bag. Your taste buds will thank you for it! 

Why We Micro-Roast

Micro-roasting is an art form, and it’s the best way to ensure freshness. That coffee on the grocery store shelf may have been roasted months ago. When our coffee arrives at your doorstep, it’s likely gone through roasting only days before.

We care about the coffee experience and have a strong commitment to our freshness guarantee. Roasting in small patches also ensures the high quality of the product, so you know you’re receiving specialty grade coffee.

Micro-roasting doesn’t impact our variety, as we have coffees of every roast level and beans that originate from all over the Coffee Belt.  

Our Mission 

To deliver fresh, high-quality specialty grade coffee at a fair price to cups across the county.

Our Vision

To connect with other coffee lovers to share the experience of great coffee and adventure.

Our Values

  • Transparency: We strive to provide accurate and clear information about a coffee’s origin, roasting and other attributes.
  • Passion: We don’t just make coffee; we’re obsessed with it. The passion we have for the beverage shows in everything we do.
  • Quality: We only offer specialty grade coffee with guaranteed freshness. We want every cup you drink from our beans to exceed your expectations.
  • Sustainability: We care about the environment and the planet. We use sustainable processes whenever possible.
