about sidecar coffee our story

We are a locally owned Cedar Valley roaster and retailer. Our passion is handcrafting extraordinary coffee and sharing it with the community we’re so proud to be a part of.

Sidecar Coffee opened our first roasting facility in November 2012 in historic downtown Cedar Falls, Iowa. Today we have four cafes in Cedar Falls and Waterloo. In 2017 we moved our roasting operations to Waterloo’s fully renovated and LEED certified historic Wonder Bread Bakery.

We carefully select special coffees from around the world and roast in small batches to maximize their potential. Our carefully handcrafted coffee is available at our four cafe locations in Cedar Falls and Waterloo, in Hy-Vee grocery stores, and the New Pioneer Food Co-Ops in Cedar Rapids, Coralville, and Iowa City.

Coffee should be fun. It should speak to you and make you smile. The goal of Sidecar Coffee is to listen to coffee and let it sing.
