Ever experienced bright raspberry notes in an $8 bag? What about smooth blueberry flavors, rich rose aromas, or a crisp orange-like acidity? Our coffees have flavors like these, not because we add articifial oils, but because we buy the best beans in the world.
That $8 bag at the grocery store may be cheap, but it's not going to taste great or make the world a better place. Sadly, most coffee farmers live in or near poverty, and $8 bags of coffee don't send enough money their way to offer any hope. It's a sad reality, but one that's changing thanks to the specialty coffee movement.
Our beans cost more than $8 per bag because we partner with sustainability-minded farmers who are paying fair wages, empowering their local communities, and growing stellar-tasting coffee. We source our beans via the direct trade model, meaning we deal directly with the farmers to cut out middlemen and bring better profits to the farms. Sure, our beans may be more expensive, but we're not satisfied with the status quo. We're working toward a better world, and not spending your coffee dollars on unsustainable $8 bags is a powerful way that you can play your part.
