If you are a coffee connoisseur then you have probably enjoyed coffee from Roasters Coffee.   It's been a local staple for decades.

For me, Roasters is one of the places I stop at often to grab coffee or head to when I'm having a business meeting off site, or just to go sit and work in quiet.  It's the perfect go to place with amazing coffee.

Roaster is about to see some changes.  Roasters is changing ownership.

As I was flipping through social media yesterday, a post popped up from Craig Gualtiere and that's where he shared the news.  Craig is retiring and has sold Roasters to a person who has been his right hand man, David Cooper.  David has been the GM for Roasters.

Roasters opened here in Amarillo in 1992 giving us thirty years of amazing coffee.  Today, March 31st will be Craig's last day as the King of Roasters, before he passes the crown.   He will be hanging out selling his last cups of coffee.

I'm kind of sad for the end of this era, because when you think Roasters you think Craig.  Well at least he has Chuck to keep him company, oh if you don't know Chuck is his dog and the mascot for Roasters.

So what's next for Craig?  He said he's not sure, his hobby is drag racing, and of course he has Chuck to go on adventures with on a daily basis.

If I was speculating and I am speculating, I can see Craig running for office.  He has been very vocal about the changes he would like to see for Amarillo.

What can we expect for the future of Roasters?  I have no doubt that David will continue the amazing service and product that we have come to know and love from Roasters

Best of luck Craig, and we can't wait to see what you do David!
