How & Why We Roast In-House


Dancing Bean Signature Coffee – Now Roasted In-House!

The Dancing Bean Coffee House is proud to announce that beginning February 2021, the offering of their own IN-HOUSE Roasted Coffees while bringing Electric, Ventless, Zero-Emissions Coffee to Townsend, TN!

​The Dancing Bean Coffee House now utilizes the exciting new Bellwether Coffee Roaster, makers of the first of its kind—zero emissions, internet-connected roaster.

The Bellwether is the world’s first recirculating roaster that has the technology to remove particulates and volatile organic compounds in real-time which reduces the carbon footprint of the average roaster by over 90%.

The Dancing Bean coffee house can now provide their own freshly roasted and delicious coffee while making sustainability a major priority for Townsend, Blount County, and ultimately the world!


We Care about our Smoky Mountain Home, the People & the Planet

Traditional gas-powered coffee roasters send smoke, particulates, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs)—similar to those found in aerosol sprays—into the air with every roast cycle. With the United States alone producing over 8 billion pounds of roasted coffee every year, the harmful impact of these emissions is not sustainable for our planet or healthy for the people who live on it.


In 2021 we decided to switch to in-house roasted coffee, but we wanted to do it with a roaster that creates delicious coffee and espressos –


We can’t wait for you to try the delicious difference of coffee, roasted in-house, with elevated standards, and precision control.

​Welcome to the future of coffee.


Our Visitors Say

“Loved this coffee house! We visited while on vacation. Great cup of regular coffee – more bold than most other coffees, which I like. Also had a cappuccino which was great. Staff were very friendly. They have a variety of drinks including some with alcohol. Also a lot of baked goods. Highly recommend!”

“Okay.. normally I have to “fix up” my cold brew after I get it even though I get a syrup and milk in it just because it’s a little too bitter still but their cold brew was fantastic and the barista had my order ready for me before I was even cashed out. Amazing! I didn’t have to do anything extra to it and I basically chugged it, it was delicious. Excellent service! The decor was cute too and it was very clean. Definitely will be back when visiting from KY again!”

“Stopped in for a coffee and pastry on our way to go road biking. The coffee was great and we really enjoyed the white chocolate raspberry scone. The staff was very friendly and helpful! Also saw that they offer coffee cocktails on their menu, hope to be able to stop by for an Irish coffee soon!”
