COFFEE’S JOURNEY

Before your coffee ever reaches your cup, it travels thousands of miles and is touched by dozens of hands. At every step, from the cherry on the tree that holds the bean to the harvest to the washing to the roasting, decisions are made that influence its quality. And for each of those decisions, we have a point of view and desire to bring the best beans to you.

SOURCING

We purchase most of our coffee from farmers, co-ops and responsible importers that we have known and built relationships with since 1996.

Our coffee is specialty grade Arabica coffee. We only purchase coffees that we have tasted, and that scored well above the minimum standard in our own lab. We buy thoughtfully, and seasonally, and we ensure that our farmers are paid fairly.

 

RELATIONSHIPS

The best coffees grow all over the world, between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. In rainforests or in mountains, in small farms or large, specific sets of climate and geography come together to produce truly memorable beans. 

We work with farmers and importers from around the world. We don’t just buy coffee—we partner with growers and farms to improve the lives of the communities where our coffee comes from.

TRACEABILITY

All our coffees are fully traceable from farm to cup. Our beans are either sourced directly from farms that we have visited, toured and inspected ourselves, or from trusted importation partners who keep meticulous records about the coffee’s origins.

GROWERS

Great coffee starts on the farm. The people who grow it, tend it, learn it and love it. They bring out the best in the coffee. The bean is our ingredient, and once we have them in the roastery we seek to showcase all the effort and care of our growers.

ROASTING

After we’ve found great coffee, we work hard to create roast profiles that retain each coffee’s sense of place, then enhance it with the talents of our roasting team. From light and sparkling single-origin offerings all the way to full-bodied and chocolatey dark roasted blends, every coffee and every blend has a sweet spot that we hit every time.
