Heather's Choice Announces Collaboration With SteamDot Coffee Roasters

Two Anchorage, Alaska companies collaborate to share space and product

In the Backcountry Kitchen

Heather’s Choice and SteamDot Coffee Roasters are thrilled to announce their collaborative efforts occurring in Anchorage, Alaska. These two companies are now sharing space and product in what has become a mutually beneficial relationship. Jonathan White of SteamDot became Heather’s first business mentor back in 2014 as Heather’s Choice was just getting started. Jonathan was kind enough to allow Heather to rent commercial kitchen space at SteamDot Coffee Roasters in the evenings to manufacture the first Heather’s Choice dehydrated backpacking meals and snacks. “He was so incredibly supportive of me,” Heather recalled. “He would recommend business books for me to read and help me figure out everything involved with permitting.”

As SteamDot Coffee Roasters continued to expand, Jonathan purchased the old rock gym building off of Fairbanks Street in midtown Anchorage. This iconic new facility houses their roasting equipment, coffee cupping events, and more. The move into the old rock gym for SteamDot also coincided with a need at Heather’s Choice for additional commercial warehouse space. The two businesses decided to collaborate again and Heather’s Choice is now renting 500 square feet from SteamDot Coffee Roasters for Packaroon production and to house inventory.

As of 2017, SteamDot Coffee can now be enjoyed in two Heather’s Choice products; the Black Espresso Packaroons and the Cherry Cocoa Nib Breakfast. This collaboration is part of a continued effort at Heather’s Choice to use local, high-quality ingredients. SteamDot Coffee Roasters is also offering retail distribution of Heather’s Choice Packaroons at three of their cafe locations.
