We host direct-trade coffee shops because we want to encourage folks to take small steps toward meaning and impact in community. We got into coffee philosophically, but we also love great coffee. Smart roasting is a key step in great coffee. Our roasting happens in small batches downtown in close collaboration with Coffee Roasters Alliance. You'll always be drinking coffee at its peak freshness. Our aim is to for the roast to draw out the substantial flavors of our carefully selected beans, so you can enjoy all the flavors our growers work so hard to produce.
