Sourcing

Coffee is a global commodity that starts out as a tiny seed in the middle of a dense thick forest. Sourcing the best coffee is the first and most important step in our roasting process.  In order to ensure the best product and purchasing practices, we work closely with our farmers.  We connect with farms that are innovators in the coffee growing world. These farms that not only have the best practices for their crops, but also the best practices for their farmers and laborers.  

Hand Roasting

A roasting profile is not achieved through color of the bean or time of roast alone.  All variables must be accounted for and sampled throughout the roasting process. No crop will roast the same way twice.  The roast process is periodically reviewed with a “tryer”; this primitive tool allows us to sample the coffee throughout the roasting process.  Not only can we see the color of the bean, but also the smell and physical development of the bean from inside the roaster.  We relentlessly sample throughout the roasting process in our hopes to achieve a perfect roast each time.

Cupping

A cupping is the tradition of sitting down at a table and letting your taste buds go to work.  There is no right or wrong in the cupping process.  What one tastes and what the next person may notice could be completely different.   It’s not about where the coffee takes you, it’s about where you take the coffee.  You may taste cocoa or caramel while the next person will have hints of tobacco and honey.  While cupping is about knowing what tastes are presented, its ultimate goal is to determine the collective flavors of each harvest. Oh and enjoy a friend’s company while savoring some good coffee.  

The Pursuit of Perfection

Coffee farmers are the foundation on which our business is built. A great cup of coffee starts from a tiny seed in a rural farm, from the care and love of a coffee farmer, which is why we back all our Fair Trade Certified and farm direct coffees

There is only ONE EARTH. We believe in sustainability and take it very seriously.  Our warehouses and trucks are all eco-friendly and low energy. A majority of our organic coffees are rain forest friendly.  Take the time and visit our “On Brew” blog to see how the coffee industry is turning into a green sustainable business.   

Perfection, in its essence, is something that no one ever will achieve. To be perfect is to be timeless, shapeless and omnipresent all at once. But if we strive for perfection in our craft, this will surely lead to progress.  The pursuit of perfection is not something to ever be obtained, but to be observed.  You will notice in our coffee that we take pride in what we do and that we are striving to make the perfect coffee, however un-achievable it may be.  

Our pursuit is not just observed in our coffee but on an environmental, social, and cultural level as well.   Our passion for eco-friendly and cultural sustainability trickles down from farm to cup.  From rain forest friendly to fair trade certified coffees, we are invested in our planet and our children’s future.
