Who We Are

Just a couple of hard-working entrepreneurs and business owners.


Tim Howard

Together with my wife, Holly, I helm Blind Coffee Roasters, LLC, a venture we've passionately grown since its inception in 2012. This journey of entrepreneurship not only fuels my passion for crafting exquisite coffee but also offers deep insights into the intricacies of business management and the unique challenges faced by small business owners.
This dual role of creator and custodian brings a rich sense of balance and perspective to my life. My dedication to the art of coffee roasting has been recognized with 19 international medals, a testament to our commitment to excellence. 



Keri Elliott

I grew up in Torrance, California where I also got my start in coffee by getting a job at Starbucks right after high school. I met my husband, Kevin, many years later and moved to Portland, Oregon in 2015 where we started our family and had our son Ethan.

In 2019 I started Elliott & Murrey Coffee Roasters and in 2023 we transitioned to Roasted By Mom Coffee. Aligining more into being what my messaging was about representation with women and mother's in the Specialty Coffee Industry.
