About the Coffee

We roast coffee from one particular lot chosen each week from the coffees we’ve selected and have in stock. We roast in multiple small batches, ordinarily on Sunday or Monday each week to fulfill our shipment obligations for that week, in order to get the coffee to you at the point of optimum freshness.

You can read about the current and recent coffees at our Coffee of the Week page.

Our coffees are selected mainly from the offerings available from Sweet Maria’s/Coffee Shrub, the sister companies founded and operated by Thompson Owen. Sweet Maria’s has been in the business of supplying home coffee roasters with excellent green coffees for roughly twenty years, and we’ve been loyal customers for the last thirteen.

Coffee Shrub is Owen’s newer outlet, aimed at small scale commercial roasters and selling in quantities of fifty pounds and more. Beyond being a vital source of very high quality coffees, we look to Tom’s businesses as exemplars of the best practices of transparency and commitment to quality we know of in the coffee business. We encourage you to visit both of these sites to learn more about coffee in general, and our coffees in particular.

We’re also beginning to diversify our sourcing with selections from InterAmerican Coffee’s extensive list of coffees.
