No, we do not have classes scheduled at this time. You can find informational videos on a range of topics under our brews guide here: Brewing Guide  

Our coffee is roasted at our state of the art facility in Rockville, MD.
 

We roast daily depending on what our projected demand for the week is.
 

This refers to how long a coffee has been roasted and color level that is achieved through the roasting process. Roast profiles are typically Light, Medium, Dark and Very Dark. 

We are a Latino and Immigrant owned company. Our staff is made up of about 85% either immigrants or first generation US born children of immigrants. If we are going to change the systemic poverty created by old world trading and ideology we are going to begin in a place where we have roots, speak the language and know firsthand the trials and tribulations of the people in those areas, because that is where we come from.  

Yes, our facility is free of all major US and Canadian allergens, including eggs, wheats, milk, soy, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, mustard, sulfides and sesame. 

Yes, we have digital gift cards for purchase here: Digital Gift Cards
  

Yes, all of our coffee and the farms that we work with are certified organic by major international certifying bodies. There is a rigorous auditing and inspection process to maintain organic certification at both the farm and facility level. We build direct relationships with our farmers and routinely visit and touch bases with them throughout the year.  

Yes, all of our coffees are certified Kosher by the Orthodox Union.  

The FairTrade brand is good for companies that sell commercial grade coffee and are not able to engage directly with producers themselves. We do not participate in this program as we’ve been developing a direct network of producers and cooperatives for over 25 years with whom we work directly and pay higher than fair trade prices. Our direct relationships also allows us to provide even more support than what is offered through the FairTrade program such as helping with financing, organic certifications and engaging agronomists to work with our producers.

The longer coffee is roasted the more of its natural oils are expressed to the surface of the bean. Light and medium roast coffees will not have a distinctly oily sheen that you will find on dark and very dark roast coffees. 

There are many ways to store coffee we recommend storing in the bag away from direct moisture, heat and light. You can also use an airtight container. You can check out more info on coffee storage here: What is the Best Way to Store My Coffee?  

All of them! It really depends on what works best for you. Check out our brewing guides to learn what style matches your tastes. Please check out our brewing guides here: Brewer's Guide

Our general recommendation is 15g of coffee for every 8 Oz of water. If you don’t have a scale you can use 2 TBSP of coffee per 8 oz of water.

Coffee is a seasonal product so we will on occasion run out of a particular varietal between harvests. When this happens we will keep you updated through our newsletter so be sure to subscribe. Occasionally we may retire some of our offerings to make room for new products. We recently discontinued Roastmaster’s Blend, Mocha Java, and Heavenly Hazelnut.  

Yes, we are happy to grind your coffee for you. Just select the grind size you want on the product page. The grind size you select should correspond to the brewing method you are using. Generally you would select Coarse for French Press, Medium (Drip) for automatic coffee brewers, and fine for stove top espresso makers (moka pots).  

Our coffee is sourced directly from small family farms and coops throughout Latin America. Learn more about our producers here: Our Partners

Raw, unroasted coffee beans. We don’t recommend purchasing these unless you intend to try your hand at home roasting. Learn more about home roasting here: How to Roast Green Coffee at Home 

We use the Swiss Water Process for our decaf offerings. This process uses water, temperature, and time to gently remove caffeine, while preserving all the coffee’s original characteristics. Learn more here: Swiss Water Process  

All of our products with the exception of seasonal items, and merchandise.
