Handlebar Coffee

At Handlebar Coffee, their passion for coffee developed over the years as they found themselves soaking up culture and catching up with friends in cafes all over the world. The couple discovered Santa Barbara while riding in the California Amgen Tour and moved here in 2008. Olson and Anderson purchased a German-built coffee roaster, which they’ve named “Hercules,” and started roasting beans. The café and roasting company opened in November, 2011 on East Canon Perdido Street. Handlebar Coffee is a welcome addition to the area that has become a popular destination for foodies.

Sip a delicious cup of Handelbar in your room and pick up a bag of their roasted beans in our shop.
