David Blanchard is passionate about good coffee and has been instrumental at bringing more of it to Richmond. Starting off in his dad’s garage in 2005, word soon got out that David was roasting some of the best coffee around. Ukrop’s Super Markets picked them up and they’ve been growing ever since. Today, Blanchard’s roasts thoughtfully sourced coffees from around the world for brewers, retailers, and coffee enthusiasts throughout the U.S. We enjoyed a cup of their RVA blend during this week’s 3 Questions.
