About Us

About Us text overlaid over photo of Lake Tahoe

DRINK COFFEE DO STUFF is a specialty coffee company built with the belief that extraordinary coffee leads to an extraordinary life. The mantra began in the Swiss Alps in 2012 during founder Nick Visconti’s pro snowboard days and continues today at our Lake Tahoe headquarters. As specialty coffees grow at elevations similar to that of our roastery, all our coffees are sourced from the mountains and roasted in the mountains. The hallmark of our coffee roasting style is maximizing sweetness and revealing origin characteristic. High altitude roasting at 6,000ft in Lake Tahoe provides us unique advantages to achieve this consistently making all our coffees more sweet, less bitter. 

Since our launch in 2017, we have opened three brick and mortar coffee shops around Tahoe, as well as, multiple in-store grocery cafes! In addition, we are proud to serve many wonderful wholesale partners and distribute our best-selling blends throughout California and Nevada grocery stores. Check out our store locator to find your favorite coffee nearest you! And, of course, we couldn't be more thrilled to fuel our cult fan base spanning the country with award winning coffees through a variety of e-commerce opportunities. We meant in when we said it, we believe extraordinary coffee leads to an extraordinary life, so whether the "stuff" you do is training for an Iron Man or dropping the kids off at school, we are stoked to roast for you.

Thank you. Truly. This brand (maybe a movement!) coupled with the most incredible coffees are only possible through the support of our amazing customers. This dream started in a living room with an exhaust pipe out the window and a shop-vac without a filter blowing all the coffee chaff back into our home. We are just in awe everyday at the DRINK COFFEE DO STUFF community and are so proud to invest our lives into making your life as extraordinary as possible, one cup of coffee at time.
