Our Story

Time Honored Traditions

It was a spark of Texas pioneer spirit that led to the wood-fired coffee that is Summer Moon. 
Our family’s dream to craft coffee more authentically has ignited an ever-growing community of coffee lovers who won’t have their coffee roasted any other way than over a roaring wood fire.

A SPARK.

  A local auction changed the life trajectory of our entire family. 
A winning bid on coffee equipment led to our first coffee shop in 2002,
the creation of Moon Milk, our first hand-built roaster and then 
the opening of  Summer Moon Coffee Bar on South First St. in 2005.


 

WILDFIRE.

What followed were years of perfecting our craft before local demand
propelled us to open locations across Texas, starting with another
location in Buda, Texas in 2013. Close family friends opened licensed
locations in North Austin, San Antonio, Dallas and Houston areas, where the
Summer Moon standard carries on. At the same time, our family
continues to grow locations throughout the Austin Area.

Even though Summer Moon has grown to nearly 20 locations
and counting, not much has changed.

THE AFTERGLOW.

Summer Moon coffee beans are still roasted in Austin, TX
in the same wood-fired brick ovens we built using the
time-honored process of 19th century coffee masters.

We are continually perfecting a craft roasting process
that we are proud to call our own. For the better part of
two decades, we have been committed to making small,
hand-roasted batches of the finest beans over seasoned Texas oak. 

It’s a labor of love spanning two generations,  
and we are not stopping anytime soon.
