Meet Nick & Ilah Rose

Hailing from Central California, Nicholas Cookston-Minton is the owner & roaster here at Bouquet Coffee Roasters. Nick's enthusiasm and unique methodology for both coffee roasting and brewing are well known amongst patrons and staff of The Mill; founded by him and his artist wife Ilah Rose in 2013 with two cafe's in Sacramento. Nick has over 17 years of specialty coffee industry experience, has studied espresso machines with John Blackwell owner of La Marzocco in Seattle, attended numerous courses on coffee roasting with leading industry educators, and helped develop and build nationally recognized coffee company. Nick's unparalleled curiosity and drive to create incredible coffees is truly special as he is one of the most generous and kind people. If you ever get the chance to corner him and talk about coffee, you'll know how contagious his positivity and drive truly are. When Nick is not sourcing and roasting incredible coffees, you'll find him with a guitar or banjo in hand singing the songs of another time. 

Ilah Rose Cookston-Minton is an artist & owner of Bouquet Coffee Roasters. When she is not painting in her studio, she is busy learning as much as she can about medicinal plants and tea, with her pup Molly near by. You’ll find her at the HQ formulating new beverages for the The Mill, sourcing teas for the collection or working on new packaging designs.  With a contagious laugh and big smile Ilah Rose brings a mysterious warmth to the company; if you are around her long enough she’ll enthusiastically make you a delicious cup of tea.
