[VIDEO] Meet Mississippi’s Oldest Coffee Roaster

Dec 20, 2018 |

We’ve been hearing about High Point Coffee Roasters for a while, and it seems, for good reason. This New Albany, Mississippi coffee roaster has been a premier supplier of gourmet coffee to discerning coffee connoisseurs, coffee shops and retailers around the United States since 2004.

In this Eat Y’all exclusive video, Dan the Coffee Man, as he’s known, points out that they’ve built their reputation and continued to build a legacy of success by sticking to a few core values that set them apart in the ocean of dime-a-dozen coffee roasters that have popped up in recent years.

Coffee Distinctives

High Point Coffee Roasters selects and carefully roasts small batches of the finest arabica coffee harvested each season (the top 2% produced in the world, they say), transforming the beans into distinctive roasts by using state of the art, gas fired drum roasters. Their 12-kilo machines allow them to roast their small batches followed by short cooling times, so they can maintain the highest levels of quality and consistency. Dan says you’ll enjoy a distinctive sweet, smooth flavor in their coffees. We agree!

A few other distinctives stood out to us about High Point Coffee Roasters, one of the featured businesses in the new Genuine Mississippi program, the “stamp of authenticity” showcasing the best Mississippi grown, raise, crafted and made products.


  • They put the customer first placing quality before price.
  • They offer custom packaging / private labeling – again, because the customer is their priority.
  • You get it fresh! They ship the same day that your coffee is roasted.

They welcome visitors to the High Point Coffee Roastery located at 739 Lot 2 Hwy 15 North, New Albany, MS 38652. Their roasting hours are Monday through Thursday 8:00 – 5:00 and Friday 8:00 – 4:00. You can also place individual orders and inquire a wholesale account at their website, highpointcoffeeroasters.com.
