Retrograde Coffee Roasters

Retrograde Coffee Roasters was founded by then-baristas Danielle Connor and Casey Lanski in 2014. Back then, we roasted our coffee out of our home kitchen and would truck our coffee cart around to countless farmer's markets and events. Retrograde is going back to the basics of what we love: specialty coffee, community connections and hand made provisions. Our focus is in the details with our small batch coffee roasting and value-based approach to everything we do. 

As Retrograde moves forward, we maintain our focus on the details and how it impacts the world around us.

We strive to improve the lives of others by extending kindness to all, creating sustainable careers in coffee, giving back to our local community, schools, organizations and non-profits and committing to taking care of our Earth through our green business practices.

Topaz and Pearl

Modern Bohemian Jewlery

There's a magic that happens when we connect with other humans through beautiful, handcrafted goods. We are a tiny team led by one woman on a mission to create that magic with colorful gems. All of our designs are made in our cozy studio in Sonoma County. Fueled by black coffee and tacos, we are building this business by our bootstraps (and they're hella cute boots if we do say so ourselves).

We believe that dressing beautifully is self care and that the right jewelry can help boost your confidence. We want women to feel joyful every day by using their wardrobe as an opportunity for fun. We hope you laugh more, smile bigger, and make all the memories. And we'd love to be a small part of that.

We combine techniques including wire wrapping, bead weaving, metalsmithing and more to handcraft our designs. Our goal is to bring you unique, high-quality jewelry that won't break the bank. We also post free styling videos on Instagram with advice to help you build the fun and functional wardrobe of your dreams.
