Our coffee is purchased from multiple coffee importing companies who have direct contact with farmers. This allows us to have input on how the coffee is grown and processed; resulting in a cup that is better oriented toward customer preferences. With our partnerships we know that farmers are receiving the best possible price for their beans resulting in better sense of accomplishment and more care given on the following years crop.
Great coffee doesn't come from farms with mass production and shortcuts. It comes from families that depend on producing the best beans possible, even if it means sacrificing a little profit. This process makes less available to purchase and when the coffee is gone, it's gone.
