Every great cup of coffee starts with high-quality beans. As a coffee roaster, we take a lot of care in sourcing our beans to make sure that we're providing our customers with the best possible product. We source from three primary companies: Osito Coffee, Long Miles Coffee, and Cafe Imports. Keep reading to learn more about where your coffee comes from!
We've been working with Osito for about two years now and they've become one of our go-to sources for beans. Osito is based out of Colombia and they have a strong commitment to sustainable and ethical sourcing practices. They work directly with farmers to ensure that they're getting a fair price for their coffee and they also invest in projects that help improve the quality of life in farming communities. One of our favorite things about Osito is that they're constantly trying new things - they're always experimenting with different varietals and processing methods, which keeps us on our toes and helps us keep our coffee offerings fresh.
Long Miles Coffee is based out of Burundi and they operate their own washing station and farm. What sets them apart is their focus on quality - they only use ripe cherries and do extensive sorting both before and after fermentation. This results in a coffee that is incredibly clean and has lots of complex flavor notes. We've only been working with Long Miles for about a year but we've already featured their coffee in several of our blends and single origin offerings.
Cafe Imports is one of the largest green coffee importers in the United States. They work with growers all over the world to develop long-term relationships and secure high-quality coffees. They also offer a wide range of services for roasters, including everything from cupping sessions to logistics support. We've been working with Cafe Imports for several years and they've helped us expand our horizons by introducing us to new growers and varietals.
As you can see, a lot of care goes into sourcing the beans for your morning cup of joe! We work with some amazing partners who are committed to sustainable and ethical practices, ensuring that we're providing you with the best possible product. So next time you take a sip of your favorite blend or single origin coffee, know that it's the result of a lot of hard work (and some pretty amazing beans)!
