Veterans in coffee slowly built Chromatic over the years. It began with a plane ticket to El Salvador and a sample roaster in a basement and expanded from there. By 2012, they had established roasting operations in San Jose and a showcase cafe in Santa Clara. They also invest in a lot of online sales and subscriptions.

Unlike many of the newer roasters, they know how to make an espresso blend and can often seek balance and subtlety over the usual mallot-over-the-head ultra-sour single origin espresso shot.
