After reading an article on the benefits of home roasting using a hot air popcorn maker, Café Santana founder Richard Santana was hooked! To his dismay, he found that it worked exceptionally well, but he knew that he could do even better.

Richard has been roasting coffee for 17 amazing years and counting! He opened the first Café Santana location in 2015 with a dream of creating a community gathering place in Oakland where he could realize his simple vision: to provide exceptionally well-prepared coffee combined with great service.

Our coffee

Our coffee is craft roasted in small batches to guarantee our customers the freshest coffee possible.

We ensure consistency of every roast, every day and are constantly learning and challenging ourselves to achieve the perfect roast!

Whether by the pound or the cup, Richard shares his love for roasting by offering coffee to markets throughout the Bay Area and beyond.

A coffee’s journey — from sourcing, travel, and roasting — ultimately ends when it’s served to our guests, either through whole bean sales or beverage preparation by our baristas.

To us, representing coffee’s complex story is rewarding and humbling.

We believe that customer service is key and that our café patrons appreciate the quality and difference in our products.
