About Cattle Dog Coffee Roasters

- Good ideas start with great coffee -

Cattle Dog Coffee Roasters was started by Stephen Dorst in 2008. Stephen was very passionate about providing Citrus County, FL with a great cup of fresh roasted coffee and even built the counters, cabinets and coffee bean bar in the original Hernando store. Stephen named the company in honor of his Blue Heeler cattle dog, named Barney.
Stephen successfully opened the doors to the business in 2008, but tragically passed away only two days after opening, due to a blood clot. One month later, James and Heather Cook stumbled upon the store and saw the potential of a great business. Over the next 9 months, they got to know the Dorst family and Stephen's dream better. Following in the footsteps of Stephen to understand his journey and prove to the family they would be the perfect fit to take on Stephen's dream while building their own dream too.
James and Heather reopened the doors to Cattle Dog Coffee Roasters on February 23, 2009. Cattle Dog Coffee Roasters strives to serve the best fresh roasted coffee, a progressive and eclectic menu and high end loose leaf teas Cattle Dog Coffee Roasters is the perfect place "where friends come to meet".
