n the spring of 1995, long-time sonoma resident Peter Hodgson, was up late trying in vain to name his new business. As he mulled over caffeinated terms, he begged his golden retriever to stop distracting him with her insistent barking which in dog speak meant: "Please throw that tennis ball one more time!" Then it came to him:
More Bark, Less Bite, and thus began Barking Dog Roasters.The staff at barking Dog in Sonoma Valley
The Barking Dog opened in May of 1995 in a small space with one purpose: to provide quality coffee to the residents of Sonoma , California. The lack of a quality cup in Sonoma had long been a source of frustration for our family of coffee fanatics . Since inception over a decade ago, we have grown. Over the years, our wholesale bean business grew and our community learned where to get a great cup of Joe. Now we offer a wide variety of beverages and snacks with more to come.
