About Us

Founder image

Chris Nichols, owner and master roaster has been roasting coffee for 20 years.

We buy as many fair trade certified coffees as possible and every bag is hand weighed and packaged.

We want our customers to experience coffee at its highest potential.

We use three to four roast profiles of a single coffee blended back together to bring out all of the flavor potential. We ship UPS & USPS same- or next-day for every order.

Our Story

Using 100% organic coffee beans, Chris roasts every bag that leaves the Muddy Waters headquarters. We have a 2002 30 Kilo Diedrich drum roaster.

His hands-on approach allows him to ensure the quality and freshness of every order.

All of our coffee is 100% USDA certified Organic

Amazing Decaf!

I can’t handle caffeine but love the flavor and aroma of coffee. I’m so glad I found this decaf– it has such a smooth but still robust flavor. And it makes a great espresso!

Fern Canyon!

Seems like every time we try a new (to us) coffee from Muddy Waters, we find a new favorite! We tried Fern Canyon because the description sounded yummy, and because my stepson, a California State Park Ranger, took us hiking there a while back. Every time I take a sip of Fern Canyon coffee, I am transported back to that beautiful, verdant place. Delicious coffee, lovely memory. What better way could there be to start the day!
