Roastery of cave creek
Originally from Kansas, Dave Anderson arrived in the Valley in the mid-'90s from Washington, D.C., and founded the Cave Creek Coffee Company & Wine bar. After selling "C4" in 2007, Anderson began to focus on roasting estate grown organic coffee for the Valley's finest dining establishments under the name of Roastery of Cave Creek (a.k.a. Roc2). Driven by his "mad scientist" desire to roast coffee, Anderson formed an alliance with Nationwide Gourmet to provide the Valley restaurants and coffeehouses with fresh/local/organic coffee and tea. He also enjoys designing and building custom steel furniture -- you can see some of his "industrial/contemporary/vintage" work at Baratin.
