Shade Grown on Micro Lots
Our Private Reserve whole bean coffee is sold in limited release. Why? Because it is grown on a micro lot on our farm and meticulously cared for from plant to package. That means every bean purchased will be of the highest quality and will have earned a 100% Rainforest Alliance certification. Founder’s Premium also contains over 30% Rainforest Certified coffee in its blend and all beans are from our high mountain farm.
