Roaster Story 2 : The Crackpots Coffee Roaster

Brand Story


What you need is a coffee with character

The Crackpots Coffee Roastery is an indie coffee roastery who bloomed shortly after they started exploring the coffee industry. They amazed countless of coffee drinkers who stumbled upon them because of their brand aesthetic and amazing coffee despite the fact that there were only two persons behind the roastery – Wilson and his wife, Christmas.

The name “The Crackpots” is a wordplay that hints at the cracking of coffee beans in the roasting drum during roasting, and us being total crackpots for having this crazy idea of starting a roasting business out of nowhere!

Prior to coffee roasting, Wilson was a TV scriptwriter, copywriter, translator and also a lecturer (currently shifted to part-time lecturing).
