MAPS Coffee: Bringing Artisan Roasts to Idaho

As I walked through the door of MAPS Roasting Room, located in the Wood River Valley, the scent of freshly roasted coffee beans filled my nose. Funky beats radiated from a turn table near the front of the facility as Jens Peterson, founder of MAPS coffee and roaster for Grace Organics and K&K, manned the roaster.


As we exchanged introductions and began discussing the operation, the temperature in the room began to rise. Thankfully the crisp morning mountain air was still surrounding me, keeping me cool, but as the day heated up, and the roaster cranked out batches of beans, the roasting room got hot! It was then that Jens began to divulge his past experiences with roasting coffee, his current projects, and his future plans. Read on to find out about his beginnings, MAPS Coffee, and what’s to come!

His relationship with roasting began as a child, growing up in the Wood River Valley. His father had a small time roasting operation in the back room of their home. After graduating from high school Jens made his way to California, only to be called back to Idaho a few years later when the family roasting operation expanded. His exposure to the roasting process at a young age continues to play a role in how he roasts today, as does his experiences in California. Thankfully for us Idahoans, Jens has brought his knowledge and experience to artisan sourced and roasted beans, which you can find at Maude’s in Ketchum, Idaho, Black Owl Coffee in Hailey, Idaho, and on his website Stamp 2 (2)
