a surf-inspired coffee roastery
It's swell to be SURFING
Which is where our story begins. We (Dave and Drew) met while catching waves in coastal Delaware and were quick to discover a shared passion for serving the community while exploring our own senses of adventure.
In Spring 2014, we, along with our better halves, Sharon and Karen, launched Swell Joe Coffee Company and began our quest to bring fresh-roasted, surf-inspired coffee to the Cape region. The first cup of Swell Joe was served in June 2014 at Surf Bagel.
Now we are proud to bring total stoke to coffee lovers in Delaware and beyond.
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.
