Welcome to Sentinel Coffee!

Artisan Roasted Coffee in Gustavus, Alaska

Sentinel Coffee is a boutique coffee roaster in Gustavus, Alaska dedicated to providing you with absolutely fresh organic coffee. Our roaster has been in the coffee business for almost ten years and loves to share great coffee with everyone. Over the years, we have developed a healthy obsession with freshness and roast every week to ensure our customers get their coffee at the peak of its flavor.


We strive to find you only the best organic selections from around the world. Our varieties include old world coffees such as those from Kenya and Java, as well as many Latin origins. Our selection is constantly changing with the global coffee harvest, but at any one time you can expect to find at least a dozen different origins. We also craft specialty blends of coffee for just the right espresso or a beautifully balanced brew. If you don’t know what kind of coffee you like, come into the roastery for a tasting to sample several different origins, roasts, blends, and brewing methods.


You can buy our beans direct from our roastery in Gustavus, at Rainbow Foods in Juneau, through the mail, or join over 200 longtime customers who have fresh coffee delivered to them in Gustavus and Juneau with our regular subscription service. You can also enjoy our coffee as a specialty beverage at one of our coffee house partners including Coppa, Pie in the Sky, Suwanna Café, GonZo Waffles and Flying Squirrel in Juneau, and Fireweed Coffee and Tea in Gustavus.


Sustainability: We have pledged to purchase only organic coffee for the good of the environment and the people who produce the coffee. Many of our best coffees come from small fair trade cooperatives that give us a strong connection to the farmers. In addition, we roast using an electric fluid airbed roaster giving you exceptionally clean-tasting coffee powered by hydro, not fossil fuels. Our delivery modes include bicycle, hybrid Prius, and the Alaska Marine Highway system.


Other offers: Sentinel Coffee now offers fresh-roasted, organically-grown cocoa beans, handmade chocolate products, and wild Alaskan teas. We can also cater your small event or rent equipment for you to make your own coffee for a crowd.
