Alas, Nectar Coffee Company is no more

In Left Coast Roast, I called Nectar Coffee Company “One to Watch.” Sadly, the only place to watch the wee company today is in the rearview mirror. The short-lived but much-loved operation was the effort of veteran roaster Todd Weiler, who roasted on a tiny Ambex YM-2. For nearly two years, he sold his whole bean single origin coffee along with steamy pour overs at local farmer’s markets in the Portland suburbs. Weiler made his way to Portland via roasting stints for both Flying Goat and Intelligentsia in California.

Now, he has headed back to California to take a pretty wonderful job as lead roaster at Blue Bottle Coffee in Oakland. You can keep track of his exploits on Twitter at @toddweiler1.
