Hello, I'm Derek Robinson, a husband, a father, a teacher, a coffee roaster. I love traveling and truly believe one of the best ways to connect with a city and its culture and people is through local coffee shops! Every shop tells a story.
DerekSips.com is where we come together over a delicious cup. Please check out our online shop for fresh, roast to order coffee beans! Coffee and drink lovers can also experience some of the best local coffee shops throughout Phoenix and the world (or at least the places I've traveled) by watching our videos (coming soon).
ABOUT DEREK SIPS
Pamela and I have been married since 2009. We met at church in Tempe and have been enjoying the ups and downs of life ever since. In 2012, we welcomed our first kids, twin boys, then 2014 another son, then 2016 our daughter, and yes...2018, our LAST son. ;)
Our online store began with my fascination and love of coffee. In 2012, I began roasting coffee because of multiple friends who claimed fresh roasted beans make a more flavorful cup. Well...they were right, over the years I have found my favorite cups of coffee are typically the ones we make in our home.
My aim is to give you the same experience. I guarantee your coffee will be roasted to order to ensure freshness! The beans will always come whole so you can grind at home based on your brewing preferences.
