Authentically good coffee, from crop to cup.
We’re in the business of doing the right thing, because we know that good coffee is about more than exceptional flavor.
Authentically good coffee is a series of choices that begins with the farmers and the land and reaches all the way to your favorite mug. These are our choices.
We choose Fair Trade. Through our 23-member co-op, Coop Coffees, we build relationships directly with the farmers. Though our friendships go beyond transactional, we negotiate directly with our producers, so they can secure the best price, without middle men and negative market influences.
We choose to give a percentage of our profits back to our farmers so they can re-invest in their own businesses and communities.
We choose 100-percent, USDA-certified, organic beans. From crop to cup, our propagation, transportation, storage and processing is organically certified. It’s better for flavor; it’s better for you; it’s better for the planet.
We choose to obsess about roasting with care, precision and solid dose of artistry. Okay...maybe this part isn’t so much choice as it is built into our DNA. Either way, we choose to extract the ultimate flavor and complexity from every bean as a way to honor the farmer, the plant and you.
We choose to pay living wages and ensure a healthy work/life balance for our team.
We choose to value relationships and exceptional customer service. Running a business is hard; buying coffee and working with suppliers shouldn’t be.
We choose to support our community.
We choose integrity, transparency and care.
We choose to have a good time. We take coffee seriously, not ourselves
