Our Story

Scrimshaw Coffee was created by owners Will Remsbottom and Roger Chagnon. Destiny brought them together and when she asked if they were ready, they said "yes." Both gentlemen are obsessed with customer service, coffee and delivering quality to their neighborhood. Will likes the ocean, beer and his community. Roger plays music and after beginning kung fu training, secretly hopes the apocalypse will come soon.
After many hours. Many, many hours, they landed on an idea that they have brought to life right in the heart of San Diego. They hope to see Scrimshaw Coffee breathe new life into its surrounding community; offering a new local spot for students to cram for tests, for locals who need to roll out of bed directly into a tasty cup, for passers by to try something new and for coffee lovers everywhere to stop in and say "hello."
Both Roger and Will are San Diegans and are excited to be contributing to the craft of their city and it's people. And they look forward to wasting some time with everyone who stops by.

Will Remsbottom

Just wants to do all of the things. He is probably too passionate for his own good. He loves his community and the idea of a cafe being a hub of human connection. Will has worked many a service job over the years, and has finally decided to take the leap to create a place of his own for neighbors and friends to call their own. Like Roger, would also eat pizza for every meal if it was sustainable. Or In-N-Out Burger, of course.

Roger Chagnon

Loves movies and tv. Feel free to nerd out on the latest pop-culture with him. He plays guitar in a band, practices wing chun and has pets. He would eat pizza for literally every meal if it was physically viable. Please remind him to drink water between cups of coffee. Favorite Quote: "Share the load, Frodo."
