Might Missouri Coffee Offers Alternative Blends

Posted: Updated:

Bismarck isn't known as some sort of coffee roasting Mecca. But there's an entrepreneur here who's dedicated to helping others appreciate the subtle difference between batches of beans.

Inside a storage unit in north Bismarck a young business owner is blending his love for coffee and his love for his home state, to put something unique on supermarket shelves.

Brian Jackson says that coffee used to be just something to wake him up in the morning, but now it's his passion. And a year after starting Mighty Missouri Coffee Company he still loves to make each roast his own.

"Even if two different roasters have the same beans from the same exact farm, and the same exact location, so it should taste the same even the way that we roast. It's going to have really different flavors," says owner Brian Jackson.

Jackson orders coffee beans from all over the world and roasts them in a 50 pound roaster. He showed us the process on a smaller roaster, and says this is how he tests the beans before he orders them. And although the raw beans are from exotic locations, he says his home state has a lot of influence on his coffee.

"I grew up in Hazen and Beulah, and a big part of it is incorporating that rugged North Dakota wild life style"

Jackson says one of the most important part of his business is called the cupping process, in which you can identify the true flavors of the coffee

"What we really do is focus on the region that it comes from and then really try to promote the flavor of that bean by roasting it in its own way," says Jackson.

One of the things Jackson says is important to Mighty Missouri Coffee Co is being able to give back to the countries that he orders the beans from.

"Taking 10 percent of those profits from that blend to go back into the country they're from"

Jackson says as of now he's focusing on just roasting. and getting his products out to specialty retailers in North Dakota.

Mighty Missouri Coffee Company has 3 blends that are available year round and a few seasonal blends. You can find the brand at all Dan's Supermarkets.
