A pro of the custom v-twin industry going into the coffee business? Unusual enough to be mentioned. Rob is the man designing and manufacturing leather solo bags for Harleys under the brand name Garage Leathers and whose different models have been featured in the past here in my Blog. I asked him how did you go from designing cool motorcycle bags to selling coffee bags.
“I started Garage Leathers purely out of the need for a cool bag for my rigid Shovelhead…. Garage Coffee Co. got its start more or less the same way. My buddy Rich and I have gone out of our way to find the best coffee possible, searching out small shops and ordering from roasters all over the country.
Often disappointed and never completely satisfied we took matters into our own hands. With the help of friend and family we pulled off what seemed impossible. We roasted a combination of 5 premium beans from around the world to create a bold cup of coffee that doesn’t have a burnt or bitter taste to it. We affectionately called it “Road Rage” Our decaf will be out in a week or so, its called “Anger Management” We have been giving away the coffee for months to our friends and family. We thought it was time to make it available to everyone…”
And if you wonder, Rob still designs and produces solo bags and never been so, huh, pumped up. “Road Rage”, the signature blend is shipped as whole bean, drip, espresso or French-press. “Anger Management” decaf available in a couple of weeks. You can order online at Garage Coffee Company.
