Jeff and Eliza Murphy of Terra Nova Coffee roast organic coffee in a barn, tucked among the rocky hills of the Connecticut River Valley in New Hampshire’s Monadnock Region. You’ll find them roasting small, fresh made-to-order batches every day of the week, and sometimes into the starry night — just so they can get it to their customers at it’s absolute peak quality.
