Camellia is a genus of flower that has nearly infinite varieties. Sacramento, CA is the camellia capital of the world! And as such has a rich history of beautiful blooms and businesses named after them. We wanted to add to that tradition and honor the city that made us while also recognizing the infinite possibilities in which to grow.


Camellia Coffee Roasters began in 2015 when Ryan Harden and Robert Watson became friends and decided to make it Facebook official. With over 20 years of experience among them, Ryan as an award-winning roaster, and Rob a highly skilled & passionate barista, the two were ready to create something true to themselves and shake things up in the Sacramento coffee industry.

Camellia got it’s start as an exclusively wholesale roaster, making coffee for our friends bars & restaurants around town. Then in 2018, we opened our first cafe on R Street, blooming in the winter like our namesake flower. Since then we have been focused on our mission to bring coffee and good times to our  neighbors, visitors, and businesses.


The vision for Camellia is a highly professional coffee company that doesn’t take itself too seriously. We’re returning to the original reason why anyone falls in love with coffee: because it’s fun to create good things and share them with people, and make genuine friendships. We believe that by keeping things simple and sincere, we can afford the freedom to be focused & flexible with our staff, guests, wholesale partners, & our offerings. We want to make your coffee dreams come true!
