Celtic Cup Coffee, a Maryland Cottage Business, will be expanding to open a roaster and tasting room according to a report by Maryland Newsletters.

According to the report, owner Doug Ing has pulled a permit to open at 8455 Colesville Rd in Silver Spring (pictured above). A Maryland Cottage Business is a business that a) produces or packages cottage food products in a residential kitchen; and b) has annual revenues from the sale of cottage food products in an amount not exceeding $25,000. ​​ All sales, including online sales, are restricted to within Maryland. An opening timeframe is not yet available.

Per the Celtic Cup Coffee website, “Founder and roast master, Doug Ilg, is a computer scientist by training. After a 30+ year career, part of which was working with NASA and other agencies to devise ways of computing, organizing, storing, and distributing science data imagery from various Earth observing environmental satellite systems, he has decided to follow his passion for coffee and help his community by broadening their home coffee brewing horizons.

Doug began his coffee journey early in life. His earliest coffee memory is as a boy of 6 or 8, pleading with his parents to be allowed to join the adults with a cup of coffee. When it was allowed, it took the form of a carafe of hot water and a packet of Sanka® instant. In the 1990s, Doug was introduced to home coffee roasting by a co-worker whose husband roasted coffee on a cookie sheet in their home oven. After a short tutorial, he started roasting tiny batches in his own home oven. This sparked an abiding passion for producing the best possible cup of coffee. Since then, he has cycled through several small home roasters, all the while learning the intricacies of the craft of coffee roasting.

Finally, in 2019, Doug founded Celtic Cup Coffee, focused on custom roasting coffee in micro-batches and helping people produce their best cup of home brewed coffee. Since then, Celtic Cup has operated as a Maryland Cottage Food Business, a special category of business that produces very low risk foods in the home.”
