Roasting in Petaluma

In addition to poultry, dairy and beer, Petaluma is adding coffee to its growing menu of locally produced specialty foods.

Eco-Delight Coffee is bringing its corporate headquarters and roasting facility to a southeast Petaluma business park, moving from its Suisun City offices.

The 3-year-old coffee import and distribution company will join Petaluma Coffee & Tea Company, a small roastery in the city's Foundry Wharf area, and Mountanos Family Coffee & Tea, which is moving its corporate headquarters from San Francisco to Petaluma.

Eco-Delight co-founders Guillermo Moran and Rodolfo Bendig, both natives of Central America, were attracted to Petaluma's burgeoning reputation as a niche food industry hub. Moran said he is hoping to "find synergy" with food purveyors in Petaluma and throughout the county.

"We chose California because we believe Californians are great lovers of high-quality food products, especially Northern Californians," Moran said. "If something does well in California it goes all over the country."
