   Our Story   

Hi! Welcome to Motivāt Coffee Roasters.

Motivāt was founded in 2017 by husband and wife team Collin and Carolyn Young (better known by their Instagram handles @the_pourover_pastor and @ouryoungfamily).


Motivāt is a people-first coffee roasting company. We love roasting and serving our coffee right here in the Bay Area, introducing local coffee lovers to unique, single-origin selections from all over the world. Recently, we’ve had the pleasure of opening our first storefront. Join us in Downtown Oakland for specialty coffee drinks!


Our goal is to provide the best service and the highest quality products while also raising awareness around issues we are passionate about. For every bag of coffee we sell, $1 goes back to a non-profit or social initiative in the country of origin, funding children’s education, women’s restoration, and re-entry job training programs.


We hope you enjoy all we have to offer! Feel free to get in touch, or join our mailing list below to stay informed on all things Motivāt: shop updates, brewing tips, news, and more.


Collin + Carolyn
