Blind Dog Coffee Roasting company was established in 2007, by founder and Master Roaster Mark Berry in Reno Nevada. Mark started roasting coffee while going blind. Just one year later by the fall of his 49th birthday he was completely blind. No longer able to earn a living in the horse world, Mark decided to follow his passion in coffee instead and in doing this Blind Dog Coffee was born. Working side by side with his partners & family for several years Mark decided it was his time to retire and his family still kept full ownership . Still clinging tight to the core values Mark had set in place; always wanting to offer our customers a specialty high quality coffee at a fair price and being able to give back to the community especially the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation since this was something near and dear to his heart.
