Meet Our Roasters - Snowy Owl Coffee Roasters

Updated: Mar 3

Snowy Owl is a coffee roaster out of Brewster, Massachusetts owned by Shayna Ferullo & Manuel Ainzuain who offer high-grade, freshly roasted and meticulously prepared coffees. They procure their specialty coffee beans from importers, small-lot growers, and cooperatives that focus on environmental sustainability, economic development, and educational enhancement programs. With several direct-trade partnerships, their goal is to provide transparency and education to coffee consumers.

In an age when specialty coffee can be perceived as rigid and intimidating, Snowy Owl prides themselves on offering coffee that is approachable, consistent, and inviting, while also being casual, experimental, and just simply fun.

Let's talk about the company name 'Snowy Owl'. When Cesar Ainzuain, Manuel's father, passed away in 2013, he was laying on a pillow shaped as an owl. In an attempt to find a more comfortable pillow than what was offered at the hospital, Manuel and his two sisters and brother chose a comfy, plush owl pillow from the childrens' section of a nearby department store. Cesar was not amused when they brought it back, but eventually he grew to love it and even joked by imitating the owl face, with his big eyes and hairless, chemo-scarred head. Shortly after his passing, all four children began to see owls. Owls have since appeared to the Ainzuain children in the trees of Southern Oregon, several floors up in parking structures in downtown Miami, in the mountains of Peru, and on the wintery beaches of Cape Cod. The Snowy Owl is a gift to all Cape Codders; the beautiful animal is an extra special gift to their family. With each sitting of an owl the presence and legacy of Cesar is undeniably felt.

"Snowy Owl Coffee was a dream that came to fruition in 2015. Though we pour our blood, sweat and tears into the business each day, we are nothing without the help of the incredible staff at Snowy Owl Coffee. It takes a village. And we truly could not have asked for a better village." - Shayna Ferullo & Manuel Ainzuain.
