Our Story


Windward Coffee Roasters

Windward is a Northern Ohio family owned coffee roaster operated by Dave Hoffmann, who holds the lofty and often meaningless title of Proprietor, and Regina Shaw, our much-needed and much more important Director of Rational Thinking. Founded in 2007, we are dedicated to making sure our customers enjoy the finest quality coffees at home, at work and in fine dining establishments everywhere.

Dave says few things are more natural to him than spending his days roasting coffee and talking to customers across the country. Regina's CPA and senior executive experience in luxury hospitality, restaurant and commercial real estate brings a healthy dose of common sense and business acumen to the table. 

About Our Labels

Windward Coffee's Captain's Table label is reserved for the finest coffees we offerWe're always on the lookout for new coffees and when we find something great, beans that stand out from other coffees, they're reserved for our roast-dated Captain's Table label. These coffees can include estate grown beans, special microlots, Cup of Excellence winners and other fine coffees from across the planet. These limited edition coffees change frequently so we invite you to check back often.

All our Windward Select coffees are carefully chosen for their great flavor Equal care goes into choosing and roasting our Windward Select coffees. We think the first duty of every coffee is to simply taste great, and that's what Windward Select is all about — bringing you great tasting coffees representative of the distinct characteristics and flavors of the world's growing regions.
