Expression through coffee and dance is part of our creative approach to life.
It's important our coffee is ethically sourced and rhythmically roasted.
You'll find an artistic touch in every batch.
A dream transpires with hard work, determination, and a lot of coffee!
The founders of Dancing Ox Coffee Roasters, JP and Lauren, weren't always tasting their way to perfect a craft. After 20 years of competitive ballroom dancing, these Professional World and United States Champions traded in the limelight for coffee beans.
They share a love of coffee, travel, and artistry so naturally the coffee world for them, quickly evolved into their preferred outlet for passion and creativity. After an inspirational trip to Costa Rica they found their true calling. "Coffee can be just as dynamic as dancing,” says Lauren, “a cup of coffee holds a world of nuances, rhythms, and emotions.” Artful roasting reveals those worlds for JP, explaining "The complexity of a coffee bean and developing its roasting potential is an art with no boundaries."
Together, JP and Lauren bring their showman work ethic and rhythmic hearts in delivering beautiful roasts. Proudly roasting in Belmont, North Carolina, Dancing Ox Coffee Roasters have mindfully selected beans from among the world's best tasting coffee varieties to ensure your inspiration.

Ethiopian coffee is one of our favorite single origins! Coffee holds a special place in the Ethiopian culture. It totally differs from other coffee producing countries that simply produce coffee as a cash crop. OCFCU is a democratic farmer-owned coop established in 1999 that works exclusively in Oromia Regional State, which accounts for more than 65% of the country’s total coffee growing land. Operating under the principles of International Cooperative Alliance and fair trade, members farmers process and supply high quality, organic Arabica coffee for direct export.
