A Passion for Single-Origin, Organic Coffee: Meet Alek Dailey

Embark on a coffee journey where relationships take center stage. As a small-batch, organic, single-origin roaster, we foster deep connections with our customers and the farmers who nurture our exceptional beans.

Our commitment extends to the local community, where we support entrepreneurial endeavors and prioritize fair trade, sustainable practices, and organic produce.

In 2017, Hill Tree Roastery blossomed in Huntington, West Virginia, fueled by a passion for roasting excellence and igniting meaningful coffee conversations. We recognize that this journey wouldn't be possible without the dedication of the farmers who meticulously cultivate our beans.

At Hill Tree, the word "grounds" holds a deeper significance beyond the coffee dregs used to craft your perfect cup. We envision the vast grounds where our farmers tirelessly tend to the soil, ensuring a legacy for generations to come.

With each sip of Hill Tree Coffee, we invite you to savor the rich flavors and feel a sense of pride, knowing that your indulgence directly supports the livelihoods of hardworking farmers and their families.

Greetings, coffee enthusiasts! I'm Alek Dailey, the founder and roaster of Hill Tree Roastery. Ever since I was captivated by the intricacies of sourcing, roasting, and brewing coffee, I've been deeply passionate about the relationships that underpin sustainable coffee cultivation.
