Timeless Coffee Roasters in Oakland has finally begun roasting its own.

Led by former Sightglass Coffee head roaster RJ Leimpeter, Timeless opened its vegan cafe and bakery on Piedmont Ave. in December, but in-house roasting didn’t happen until earlier this month, after a $25,000+ Kickstarter campaign helped pay for a new Probat roaster.

For the cafe, Leimpeter was joined by He’s by Violett Slocum, a baker and vegan confectioner formerly of Bittersweet and Cafe Gratitude. Leimpeter says his goal is to continue to improve on the coffee reputation that he had a hand in building while at Sightglass.
