a surf-inspired coffee roastery
It's swell to be SURFING
Every so often a surfer is treated to a perfect day – when wind, tide, and swell come together. These days are rare, but the search for them is endless. Anyone who’s had that perfect cup of coffee knows this feeling too – it’s something we wake up anticipating, every morning.
So Dave and Drew, while waiting for the next epic day, started Swell Joe Coffee Roastery, knowing that a swell cup of coffee could tide us over.
It's swell to be SIMPLE
BECAUSE FRESH = SWELL
We’re small-batch coffee roasters who believe that less is more. We’re proud to offer six signature roasts with off-the-charts flavor. By keeping a laser focus on what works, we gather the best coffee beans from around the world and roast them to perfection – then send them straight off to our wholesale shops and online customers.
It's swell to be SERVED
We’re brewing a thriving wholesale division and are committed to provide our customers with fresh-as-it-gets coffee and we-love-working-with-you kind of service. We’re stoked to be served at some of the coolest cafés, restaurants, grocers and shops throughout coastal Delaware, including:

It's swell to be SURPRISED
Not the startling kind, more like the “Whoa, a free bag of Swell Joe” kind.
We strive to lift people up, so we’re always on the lookout for simple ways to surprise and delight the unsuspecting through random acts of coffee kindness.
It's swell to be the STORY
It's swell to be STOKED
We love what we do and consider ourselves the happiest coffee roasters in coastal Delaware. As hands-on owner-operators, we’re committed to keeping a fresh vibe and even fresher beans.
We work hard to ensure that your cup of coffee is as reliable as the tides.
