Our Story

At Indie Coffee Roasters, we’re motivated by coffee, community, and collaboration. We take great pride in every aspect of our work, from the biggest to the smallest details. Our team is more than a group of employees, we’re like family, and we work together toward a common goal: making Indie Coffee Roasters the best it can be. 

Where we began

Since day one, we’ve been passionate about excellent coffee. We’ve been roasting coffee since 2013 and spent our early days selling beans at local farmers markets. Even at our start, we’ve been focused on making connections with our local community. 

In January 2018, we opened our first coffee shop location in downtown Carmel, IN. It’s been a privilege and joy to serve our community in this way, by creating a local hub that our customers enjoy visiting day after day. We’ve enjoyed getting to know our customers and seeing the same friendly faces week after week. What started as a mission to add something to our community has turned into a wonderful experience for us as well!

As time goes, our team continues to grow too. We consider every one who works at Indie Coffee Roasters to be a valuable part of keeping the gears turning. Whether they’re serving, roasting, or sourcing coffee, or performing one of the other essential jobs around our shop, we are all reaching for the same goal day after day: providing great coffee to our community. 

We’re growing!

In September 2021, we opened a second location in West Lafayette, IN, and we’re so excited to expand to reach out to a new community.
