TopTime Coffee started after Nolan Hall experienced the world of craft coffee joints thanks to his Georgia Tech roommate. Hall was hooked on more than the caffeine. He jumped into the deep end, learning every part of the process to make great tasting coffee and deciding he wanted to roast his own.
Commercial coffee roasters can be expensive for a college student and any at-home roasters lacked the precision Nolan desired. After a few attempts submitting mobile app ideas to CREATE-X's Idea 2 Prototype program, Nolan pitched the idea for the perfect at-home coffee roaster that would be both affordable and meet his quality standards.
