SMALL BATCH COFFEE ROASTERS IN WILLIAMSBURG, VIRGINIA
As a small batch coffee roaster, we offer rotating selections of blends and single origin coffee beans.
We believe that freshness is paramount and the reason why we roast in only small batches. For those who prefer ground coffee, we grind the beans when ordered.
We source only the highest quality beans from sustainable, fair trade farmers and growers around the world, Farm Gate suppliers and Cafe Feminino co-ops.
We purchase most of our coffee beans from a Farm Gate supplier who has negotiated a price directly with the farmer “at the farm gate,” that is, without any of the confusing export and import fees. The prices we pay for our coffees are above Fair Trade minimums, and with our Farm Gate coffees we can easily verify that the good price we pay makes it to the people who do the work, and are responsible for the great cup quality of our coffee. Farm Gate is a simple principle that allows coffee producers to make premium prices in reward for coffee quality, and to reinvest to improve quality even more in the future.
We also support the Café Femenino coffee program which is one-of-a-kind ethical sourcing model committed to ending the cycle of poverty afflicting women coffee farmers across the world. Café Femenino provides direct compensation to women farmers, along with the opportunity and resources to enact positive change in their communities and on their own terms, giving women their fair share. Our passion for coffee can be found in every roast and in the true quality of each cup.
