The Rise of Specialty Coffees

The specialty coffee market is growing and has moved into mass-market channels. Coffee is now a social beverage and consumers enjoy premium branded coffee throughout the day.

The retail value of the U.S. coffee market is estimated at $46 billion dollars, with specialty comprising approximately a 51% volume share but nearly 55% value share.”

Responsible Farming

Our finca (farm) is 100% Rainforest Alliance certified and is constantly looking to new ways to ensure that production is sustainable. The coffee grows under shade trees and is hand picked, washed and sorted at the finca’s own mills. We also custom roast every bean to specification in a computerized roaster, ensuring every roast is consistent and flavorful. Immediately after the roast, we package the the coffee on premises and box for shipment to the U.S.
