About Temple

Temple Coffee is a quality-focused retail and wholesale roaster in Sacramento, California who has been voted Best Coffee House since its inception in 2005. We travel to origin to source the finest coffees and build sustainable, direct relationships with farms, often paying premiums well above fair-trade price. The result is award-winning, 90+ point seasonal coffees, including the #1 Coffee of 2013 by CoffeeReview.com. Our beautifully designed cafes feature multiple espressos (blend and single-origin), as well as rare coffees in a French press and pour over, all prepared by our friendly, thoroughly-trained baristas. We also feature monthly coffee education courses for customers on home brewing, tasting, and espresso preparation, as well as free, weekly cuppings.
