We were built with the idea of community in mind. Our mission statement, Crafting Coffee & Community, embodies the spirit of our three most important values: craft, coffee, and community. Craft represents the drive to do things differently and break outside the box. Through our core values, we believe Birdhouse Coffee can ignite a new love for coffee and sense of place in the people who visit us.
Birdhouse Coffee was started by Steve and Lori Palauskas in 2019. With a strong emphasis on craft, all of our coffee is roasted small batch in house. Prior to Birdhouse Coffee, Steve and Lori’s first venture Connecticut Valley Brewing Company was established in 2017. The community response was overwhelming and soon the brewery became a local spot to hang out and spend time with friends over a well-crafted brew. After developing a coffee stout for the brewery in 2018, it sparked a vision and a newfound connection to coffee. Birdhouse Coffee grew out of this connection and love for the spirit of coffee. The main mission of Birdhouse Coffee has been and always will be crafting coffee and community.
