Happy people make great coffee.
A coffee bean may travel up to 9,000 miles to land here in Durango, Colorado. To make that journey possible, we make deliberate choices to protect the well-being of the people and the environment - every step of the way.
We support economic independence for our farmers; organic growing, storage and processing for the beans; living wages and a work/life balance for our Desert Sun team; and unsurpassed service for our vendor partners and customers.
Doing the right thing matters because we care about these relationships. And if there's one thing we know for sure, it's that happy people make great coffee.
Our relentless pursuit of the perfect cup begins with top quality, USDA-certified, organic beans that we develop to maximize their unique characters and profiles. We roast with precision and love.
We know the people and the farms that grow our beans. In support of these relationships, we support fair and ethical trade, economic opportunity and environmental stewardship.
Supporting our community is part of our founding ethos. We prioritize work/life balance, ample training and living wages for our team. It also means giving back and sharing good vibes here in Durango.
