Coffee with a note of history.

Here at Retro Roasts, we embrace the history of our location in Downtown Russellville. You'll notice our roast and drink names are references to all things Russellville.

We are a small operation in Russellville, Arkansas whose goal is to make great coffee for great people. (That's you.) One way we're doing that is by throwing some interesting local history into our business model. So, whether you want to know more about Russellville or not, you're going to. Think of it as free conversation starters. You're welcome.


Buy Beans

we proudly roast

with our mill city roaster.

In 2019 we began our official roasting journey with a 1kg Mill City Roaster, a little guy, but the perfect size for what we needed. We continued getting our green beans from the amazing folks at Cafe Imports out of Minneapolis and haven't looked back!


Russell Roast

A light roast that feels like home. Except in your mouth. Named after the famous surgeon, Dr. Thomas Russell (who gave Russellville its name) this roast uses a fair-trade organic Guatemalan bean and is roasted to bring out the hint of almond and cocoa notes.


nuclear Roast

This roast will make you feel radioactive! (In a good way.) With its perfected ratio of Guatemalan and Columbian beans, this medium roast will have you up and “atom” when you need to start your day. The Nuclear Roast is used for all our espresso drinks.

depot Roast

During the early 1870s Russellville’s railroad was built and facilitated trade between other River Valley towns. Our fair-trade, woman-produced, columbian bean pays homage to our Train Depot and is roasted just dark enough to keep you on “track” throughout your day.

1870 Roast

Our smooth decaf offering will be the perfect ending to your day. On June 7, 1870 Russellville was officially incorporated.  Prior to this, Russellville was known as Chactas Prairie. This roast uses a fair-trade bean imported from Mexico.
