About Us

Brave Coffee & Tea Co. is a family-owned Vermont coffee roasting company and tea purveyor, offering freshly-roasted coffee and teas from around the world.


We roast on Wednesdays, and ship on Thursday every week, so your order arrives within 2-5 days of being roasted. 


Started by Chris and Heidi Townsend in 2009, and while running Black Cap Coffee in Stowe, Chris, a former ceramicist, built the roaster himself.  After 4 years of roasting, Chris decided to follow his spirit, and move out west.

Scott Weigand worked with Chris for over a year, and decided to take over the company. He had been working in the coffee business for 13 years, in positions ranging from Barista, to trainer, salesman, and now roaster.  Keeping the hand roasted specialty coffee business running under the name "Brave" was very important to Scott, as he continues to roast to the profile Chris created.  

Scott's focus is taking coffee and roasting it to bring out the best flavors of the bean.  He is a family man, with two young daughters, and loves drinking his coffee black.
