My name is Micah Svejda and I started Bootstrap Coffee Roasters in May 2014 with no partners or employees, a 6-pound roaster, a small production facility and just a handful of wholesale customers lined up. At the heart of the vision was a focus on sourcing excellent, sustainable and traceable coffees, careful roasting and amazing customer support! After spending more than a decade in the specialty coffee industry, I wanted to take that accumulated experience and execute a very focused vision of offering excellently-sourced, unique and approachably-roasted coffees.

In 2013, I quit a good job as GM of a cafe and two days later, I found myself driving a roaster back from Iowa in a rental truck. Not having a place to set up shop yet, I installed the fire-engine red 6-pound roaster in my parents’ garage and got to work searching for a space, setting up a website, gaining more technical roasting skills and doing the billions of other tasks necessary to starting out. Landing a space in the Vandalia Tower in Saint Paul and with just a few committed wholesale customers, I started business in May 2014! Now with a few more people on the team, the vision remains the same as it was then. In other words: to roast coffees that we really like and to humbly offer them to you.

I live in the West 7th neighborhood of Saint Paul with my wife Rachel, our two-year old Winston and our adopted puppy. We’re super excited for Bootstrap to be the coffee provider for The Cafe Meow! I really love The Cafe Meow’s vision and focus on quality.
