Great Coffee Comes from Great Beans
Specialty-grade beans must be grown in the ideal climate, at the ideal altitude and in the ideal soil. This means high altitudes, tropical climates, and volcanic-rich soil. The best coffee beans must then be picked at their peak ripeness, and by hand. This is the only way we'll source.
Many of the coffee farms we work with are family run. We'll sip coffee with these families right where the coffee grows and determine which beans are best suited for our special blends. It's that commitment to quality that gives our coffees the same freshness and flavor you've come to expect cup after cup.
Farmers are the heroes of this industry. We work hard to connect directly with farmers and their communities, and build healthy relationships on common values and goals. Consequently, some of our direct relationships with farmers are more than five decades old.
