ReAnimator Coffee is a specialty coffee roaster located in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. With a focus on high quality, expertly sourced single origin coffees, ReAnimator strives to present the work of the best family farms, cooperatives, and mills in the coffee producing countries of the world in their purest, most expressive forms. We travel each year to Central America and Africa during harvest seasons to explore, taste, and learn; building connections and relationships that allow us to continue to serve some of the best coffee in the world. Our goal is to highlight and honor the work done at origin by the farmers, and to not impart roast character on the coffees that may inhibit the enjoyment of those flavors.
This leads to coffees that are clean, bright, and sweet in the cup, allowing the customer to get a feel for the true character of a unique farm or producer, as well as the land, climate, and plant varietals of that source.
Over the last six years, ReAnimator Coffee has grown from roasting in a Fishtown rowhouse basement, to now operating three cafes in Philadelphia, including a roastery/cafe in Kensington, where customers can experience and watch the roasting process while enjoying coffee, as well as our latest project, Res Ipsa, which is an all-day cafe and BYO in Rittenhouse.
