Meet the Roasters

Fenton, MO — Stringbean Coffee Company was started in the Summer 2011 and featured live roasts at local farmer’s markets and the demand continued to grow.  During this time Peter, the owner, was a commercial banker in his fourteenth year.  After 14 years, 6 months and 14 days he got out! And didn’t even get cake.

Peter Cohen is a St. Louis, Missouri local musician and artisan coffee roaster.  His coffee journey started when he became frustrated with the bold/bitter combination that he easily found everywhere, so he bought a little roaster, several books and lots of different green coffee beans. He wanted a bold coffee that was smooth and could be easily enjoyed. He nailed it and started sharing, folks liked it and wanted more. His Redeye Roast is an espresso blend that is a satisfying, bold cup’a joe that ends on a smooth note.

While his little company continues to grow, it is his intent to offer the finest beans from around the world and passionately roast in small batches in non-computerized, old school ways while being an advocate for the environment and building community. Stringbean recycles, is eco friendly, and uses beans that are Fair Trade Certified™ when available.
