Our Story

Apocalypse Coffee Roasters was founded in 2020, but our Roasting story began long before that. Husband and Wife, Mike and Lisa Della Cioppa owned a popular music venue and coffee lounge for 8 years. In an effort to find the perfect coffee to serve her guests, and not being totally satisfied with what was available on the market, Lisa taught herself to roast. Over 21,000 hours were spent on her first manual Diedrich roaster, perfecting and mastering her craft. She developed several uniquely delicious organic roasts, and the local community kept coming back for more. 

Fast Forward to March of 2020, Mikes sister, Christine and her Husband, Justin Murphy, both artists, joined the team to help the company rebrand in an effort to help the small business survive and pivot during uncertain times. They quickly got to work creating logos, designing new labels, and developing a vision for the company. Thus, Apocalypse Coffee Roasters was born, Family owned, operated and bickered about since 2020.
