SANDPOINT — Schweitzer Mountain Resort has recently selected Evans Brothers Coffee as its exclusive coffee purveyor for all outlets.

Resort locations that now serve Evans Brothers coffee include Mojo Coyote Café, Chimney Rock Grill, Cabinet Mountain Coffee, Lakeview Café, Gourmandie Market, and Bottle Bay Resort on Lake Pend Oreille.

With a long-term agreement ending with a national coffee chain, Schweitzer wanted to select a local roaster from the Inland Northwest. Evans Brothers Coffee has been a cornerstone of the community since its inception four years ago, and now the Sandpoint business looks to carry on that role in the mountain village.

“Evans Brothers Coffee was a natural choice for Schweitzer” said Michael Williams, Schweitzer’s food and beverage director. “When selecting a new supplier our goal was to ensure we served a great cup of coffee — the fact that they (Evans Brothers) are a local business was just icing on the cake.”

For brothers Rick and Randy Evans, being awarded the Schweitzer account is extremely gratifying. Both are avid skiers and regulars on the mountain, with Schweitzer being a key reason each relocated their young families to Sandpoint five years ago. Schweitzer Mountain is in fact a large part of their story, as the decision to pursue their dream of starting Evans Brothers Coffee came to fruition over repeated rides on Chair 6.

All of the Evans Brothers’ coffee blends are named after ski runs on the mountain: Headwall Espresso, Big Timber Blend, Siberia Dark Blend, Chair 6 Breakfast Blend, and Vagabond Decaf Espresso.
