Why Timbertrain?

What’s in a name, you ask? For the founders of Timbertrain, Peter, Jeff and Min, the answer is simple. Together they shared a childhood fondness and wonder for trains; how trains worked, how trains transported people from one place to another, and most importantly, how trains brought people together. Timbertrain is the realization of the founders’ shared childhood dream of bringing people together and building community through their newfound passion of coffee—Timbertrain Coffee Roasters.
