March 22, 2020 - These days are tough. Most if not all of the local specialty coffee shops in Austin, New York, and your town are closed or have extremely limited hours. Right now we are down to a "week-by-week" approach to roasting. We hope to keep our online store open as long as possible and hopefully throughout this pandemic.

We've had several inquires from peeps in the U.S. and FROM AROUND THE WORLD (!!!) of how you can help small businesses like us. There are two ways:

1. Order a coffee or espresso subscription plan.

2. Order a Gift Card on this page.

If roasting is interrupted, we will move heaven and earth to get you coffee during or after the interruption. We will honor Gift Cards forever - even if the site tech doesn't. Just ping us on the socials or email orders at grimpeur bros dot com.

Sending you and your's positive thoughts of health, safety, and happiness,


Baratza grinders are our favorite grinders for the home brewer and cafe. Simply put, it's a matter of beauty, versatility, and grinding precision coupled with cost and high quality that make these grinders stand out above the rest. Not sure which one to get? We recommend the Encore and Virtuoso for pour over/drip coffee brewing. For espresso, the Preciso, Vario and Vario-W feature micro-step adjustment between the macro settings which allow you to dial in your espresso as if it were a stepless grinder. The Preciso, Vario and Vario-W are also great for pour over/drip coffee brewing - one grinder for all your coffee brewing!
