In his own words Jim is “just a Peoria native with a habit of wandering around, exploring the world around me collecting moments, especially the ones that most people overlook. People and places fascinate me, and I love telling their stories through images”.On our Café’s walls there is “just a small sampling of those moments. Those memories. Those stories. Those images”.Santa Rosa coffee shop wants to be local emerging painters and photographers best friend. We allow them to engage with our community without demanding any fee from them. Reading the texts accompanying Jim’s photographic work, while being submersed in the whistles of our espresso machine and being flooded with the aroma of our fresh coffee, will make a whole new experience of your next visit to Santa Rosa coffee shop.
At coffee farms, there are multiple traditions and practices that make this feast unique to the regions.
But a constant is the happiness that the season brings to our children.
Thanks to your patronage and to the immense heart of our farm administrators, Santa Rosa put together a Christmas party for our workers' children, our future farmers.
Simple, without blinking lights, but with tons of happiness and human interaction. We are blessed to be producers of Specialty Coffee and have to be socially and environmentally responsible.
Happy Holidays and thanks for your support. Its reach crosses frontiers.

Molly describes our Coffee Shop as one of the only coffee shops in the United States that owns the coffee farm that provides the coffee beans for their cafe. Probably because of this uniqueness, Café Santa Rosa is the only Coffee Shop featured in her book. However, there are many other qualities that you must try to discover by yourself at our place: the unique flavor and aroma of a 100% Colombian coffee, the added quality gained by a craft roasted process, the freshness of our product. All these in a inviting environment, populated by real plants and very nice people, and hosted by the best real baristas."They are a coffee business with a conscience: They pay their employees in Colombia a living wage, provide free health clinics, and are working to start a daycare on-site at the farm, which is 25 acres and has over 60,000 coffee trees grown in a socially/environmentally friendly way. The coffee beans are roasted in Peoria. Support this business and enjoy delicious coffee, espresso, or cappuccino."
Our local TV station WMBD, reported on Cafe Santa Rosa mission, as part of the Hispanic Heritage Month celebration. It is just a two minute video, but it describes very well how we fulfill our Social Responsibility in the coffee supply chain. We invest back in our farm workers and in their families, without asking for donations, since our "From Farm to Cup" business model allows us to pass a part of the savings gained eliminating the middle parties that everybody else uses when sourcing their coffees. We are very proud of our Coffee Shop staff since they also support the farm workers with part of their salaries. We do not talk a lot about sustainability and "that kind of stuff"... we just invest in people. The result is a coffee that tastes so good because it is cared for with love and satisfaction from the moment the seed is placed in the soil: that is our secret.

The champions of the Southern Professional Hockey League, the Peoria Rivermen, came to salute us with their first President’s Cup trophy - The real one!
The championship is the first for the Rivermen in the SPHL after three previous trips to the finals, and the 40-year-old franchise’s first of any kind since winning the ECHL’s Kelly Cup in 1999-2000.
We are very proud to have Codi and his team-mates from the Coffee Club as regulars at our Coffee Shop, and we are very thankful to him for surprising us with his visit.
We really enjoyed the visit of the Midland HS students to our coffee shop. They drove all the way to Peoria to learn more about our unique "From Farm to Cup" business model, as well as about our Specialty Coffee. Today more people are interested in drinking specialty coffee, and we are the only specialty coffee shop around Central Illinois instituting a goal of educating customers like the Midland students. You will also be welcome as a guess wanting to learn more about the Specialty Coffee sold only at our wonderful Café Santa Rosa.
