ABOUT OUR COFFEE

    We started roasting coffee in a small café in Bristol, Vermont in 1979. The first coffees we roasted were for our friends.
COFFEE ROASTED FOR FRIENDS® is more than a slogan, it is our mission and how we do business. Coffee is a social stimulus that brings people together where a community is formed and friends are made.

WE ARE
Friends to our Customers
We source only the highest quality, certified organic coffee,
and slow roast it to deliver a big, bold flavor.

    Friends to our Planet
We use 100% renewable biogas and electricity to roast our coffee, which is grown in a
habitat that is healthy for people, animals, plants, and the soil.

    Friends to our Growers
We work on long-term relationships with our growers and pay them a fair price.
We stick with them through their difficult times, as all friends would do. 

   Friends to our Community
We support our neighbors in need of food and shelter.



     



Our QA Grader regularly cups our green beans and tastes our roasted beans in our Coffee Lab.
This ensures our Friends taste the same big, bold coffee every time.
