We spend most of our time as touring musicians, while on tour we felt the constant need to burrow into each city in search of local food and finely crafted coffee. The preferred mode of transportation has always been by bike; finding the most excellent local coffee roasters in each city became a sport, and our passion for the dark coffee arts was born.
The name Legal Speed came about on a morning bike ride to a coffee shop in the summer of 2016. That trip quickly turned into a stop at a friend’s tattoo studio where founders Chris & Nick adorned their bodies with the first Legal Speed Tattoos. On the ride back we quickly hashed out the idea behind Legal Speed, and within weeks we had our coffee roaster set up in Southern California and started working on our craft.
We look to help build and caffeinate a community that embraces positivity, creativity, delicious coffee and exploring the world via bike. Legal Speed Coffee is for everyone, and we hope it becomes a part of your daily routine.
Stay Fast. Stay Caffeinated.
