When it comes to roasting coffee, there's no magic or secret sauce involved. In fact, with a decent palate, access to the internet, a dash of patience, and a willingness to experiment, anyone can learn to roast coffee and bring out the best flavors in each bean. This pursuit of excellence is the shared goal of every specialty coffee roaster, including us.

Recognizing this truth leads us to the realization that coffee sourcing is the backbone of our entire industry, spanning the globe. We understand that it's not just about finding the tastiest coffees in a particular country and purchasing them. It goes much deeper. Sourcing coffee is an opportunity for us to make a positive impact on the lives of coffee producers who are currently facing a sustainability crisis, with the c-market price of their coffee falling well below the cost of production.

At our company, we adhere to specific guidelines in our sourcing practices:

  1. On-Site Visits: Whenever possible, we personally visit the producers and their farms. This allows us to have a firsthand understanding of what we're getting and who we're getting it from. We walk the farms, observe their agricultural practices, and ensure their values align with ours. In cases where we cannot visit ourselves, we work meticulously with importers who share our commitment to building strong relationships with producers and acting on the ground just as we would.

  2. Forward-Thinking Farmers: We prioritize buying from forward-thinking farmers who prioritize the well-being of the land, the people involved, and the quality of the coffee. We seek out producers who are constantly experimenting with different varietals and processes, as they share our passion for innovation and transparency.

  3. Long-Term Relationships: We strive to establish long-term relationships with producers, providing them with a sense of security knowing that if the quality of their coffee remains consistent, we will continue to purchase from them in the following years. This approach empowers them to invest in their farms without the uncertainty that often plagues the industry.

By adhering to these guidelines, we have witnessed the remarkable improvement in the quality of our coffees year after year. We are proud to provide detailed information about each coffee on our website, ensuring transparency in our sourcing practices. We want you to know that we genuinely care about where the coffee comes from and the people behind it.
