My name is Micah Svejda and I started Bootstrap Coffee Roasters in May 2014 with no partners or employees, a 6-pound roaster, a small production facility and just a handful of wholesale customers lined up. At the heart of the vision was a focus on sourcing excellent, sustainable and traceable coffees, careful roasting and amazing customer support! After spending more than a decade in the specialty coffee industry, I wanted to take that accumulated experience and execute a very focused vision of offering excellently-sourced, unique and approachably-roasted coffees.

In 2013, I quit a good job as GM of a cafe and two days later, I found myself driving a roaster back from Iowa in a rental truck. Not having a place to set up shop yet, I installed the fire-engine red 6-pound roaster in my parents’ garage and got to work searching for a space, setting up a website, gaining more technical roasting skills and doing the billions of other tasks necessary to starting out. Landing a space in the Vandalia Tower in Saint Paul and with just a few committed wholesale customers, I started business in May 2014! Now with a few more people on the team, the vision remains the same as it was then. In other words: to roast coffees that we really like and to humbly offer them to you.

I live in the West 7th neighborhood of Saint Paul with my wife Rachel, our two-year old Winston and our adopted puppy. We’re super excited for Bootstrap to be the coffee provider for The Cafe Meow! I really love The Cafe Meow’s vision and focus on quality.


Micah has helped The Cafe Meow through his business, Bootstrap Coffee Roasters. He has helped provide insight on quality coffee, best coffee tools and shared his knowledge of building a small business. He always makes time for our numerous questions and has been very important in our journey so far to helping start The Cafe Meow.
