Wired Roast is a small group of ladies that are coffee obsessed. The joy of sharing a cup of good Joe brings us together on Sunday mornings and is a great starter activity before doing what ladies do best – shop!

We are based out of the beautiful White Mountains of Arizona but will travel when the brew calls us across cities and state lines. After all, it’s to dazzle our tastebuds with new blends, arouse our senses with unique café aromas, and of course, to acquire more hands-on experience with brewing, milk-blending, latte art techniques, and more!

Our goal is to help you make coffeehouse worthy brews at home – to bridge the gap between you and the coffee shop. We’ll do the research, home testing, and tutorials on various products to help further your knowledge of the beloved beverage.

If you’re looking to expand your skills with at-home brewing, learn tricks and tips of the barista trade, or simply how to make your average cup of coffee taste better, you’re in the right java house.

If there’s something we don’t know, brew up an email and we’ll do our best to find out.

Since cheering with coffee is, apparently, bad luck, we’ll just say. . .

“Have a brewtiful day!”

From DIY Dish-Water to Expert Level Brews

Feeling the pain of spending ten bucks a day at coffee shops, Kristina decided to do-it-herself at home until she was once told that her coffee tasted like dirty dish water.

There was no better motivation than that to become an amateur coffee enthusiast who aspires to raise her expectations of quality homemade brews. Choosing to expand her skills with barista training and courses while researching and experimenting with professional equipment for at-home use, there’s a lot yet to be learned.

She looks forward to better tasting coffee as the bridge between the coffee shop and her becomes narrower. Never again will it be said that she makes dish water coffee!
