The Pride of Floyd, VA
Established in 2010 in downtown Floyd, VA (pop 432), Red Rooster was created with the simple notion of roasting excellent coffee for the owner’s existing coffee house, The BlackWater Loft. Co-owners (and husband and wife) Haden Polseno-Hensley and Rose McCutchan soon found that their passion for carefully sourced and meticulously roasted specialty coffee was shared by customers around the region. Within two years the Red Rooster hired Head Roaster Tony Greatorex and saw the customer base stretch northward to Washington DC, Baltimore, and NYC. Today, Red Rooster is one of the country’s premier specialty coffee roasting companies, offering a multitude of exceptional Single Origins, Organic and Fair Trade blends, Direct Trade coffees, transparently traded coffees, and select microlots from around the world.
