Along the north coast of California, in the heart of the redwoods, lies the small college town of Arcata. While a student at Humboldt State University, Damon Woudenberg suffered through classes without a good cup of coffee. At the time, Arcata was without a traditional coffeehouse and roaster. Damon set out to finish school and open Muddy Waters Coffee Company. Why Muddy Waters? Damon spends any time he can kayaking our local rivers. He has an affinity for the water. He also has an affinity for good coffee. Viola! It's his special blend - Muddy Waters.
In February 1997 he bought the classic, turn of the century, 4-bedroom California Tudor that is now home to Muddy Waters Coffee Company. In September 1997 Jack Fraser joined Damon. Although Jack was originally asked to be head roaster and coffee buyer, it became evident there was a tremendous amount of work to be done before any beans were to be roasted. He took on several administrative tasks, in addition to helping with the renovation and construction of the shop. Construction began in April 1998. On September 15, 1998 Muddy Waters Coffee Company opened its doors to the public.
We currently have a talented staff that is committed to providing excellent coffee with legendary service. DamonÕs likeable demeanor and keen business sense shine through the shop and contribute to our success. Jack has more than proven himself to be a standout in the world of coffee. His attention to detail and knowledge of roasting are reasons our coffee is so excellent
