Our Story

Just a few words here telling who we are.

Jackrabbit Coffee Roasting Company was started in January 2019 when Brad Unruh purchased an Artisan 3e roaster and started roasting and selling fresh roasted coffee from his family business located on Jackrabbit road in rural Hiawatha. In May of 2020 Monte Unruh and his sons Ted, Derek and Bricen purchased the roaster and equipment from Brad.

We changed the name to just Jackrabbit Coffee and moved the roaster to a commercial kitchen and expanded our offering of coffees. In March of 2021 we made another change and moved into the town of Hiawatha, KS and purchased a larger drum roaster along with more packaging equipment. We also started to serve coffee drinks on Saturday mornings.

Brad is still involved in new sales and tasting and cupping. We buy coffees that are in the top 3% of quality in the world. Our roasting process utilizes Artisan software which allows us to log every roast and track the actual bean temperature. This helps us have a consistent roast every time.

Try some Jackrabbit Coffee… It’ll keep you hopping!
