Our History

Sierra Mountain Coffee Roasters first opened its doors in 1985 in Nevada City, California. The business relocated to Grass Valley and continues the tradition as roasters of specialty coffees. The coffee beans are air roasted in small batches three to four times per week in order to provide customers with the freshest beans possible. Retail and wholesale organic coffee beans are sold from the coffee house location on Maltman Drive in Grass Valley. We also offer specialty espresso drinks. award winning homemade baked goods and pastries, soups and delicious sandwiches.

The coffee house is also the location for Tomes, providing a wonderful selection of quality used books for sale. The combination of coffee and books create an inviting atmosphere for reading, visiting or just relaxing; free Wi-Fi wireless internet access for customers and guests. The coffee house is also available for meetings, poetry and book readings, classes and gatherings.

Purchased by new owners, Sandy Frizzell and Rob Paulus, the coffee house location has undergone a major remodel over the last two years. In 2009, another 1600 sq ft of seating was added for our customer's convenience and enjoyment; this addition included a 1400 sq. ft. floating oak dance floor and doubled our used book store inventory.
