We are obsessed with quality. We admit to being fiercely focused on the art and science behind an excellent cup of coffee.
That obsessive tendency led us to renovate a 2,400 sq. ft. old warehouse on San Antonio’s Southside to create a premium coffee roasting facility. From that humble beginning in 2014, we’ve prospered and grown and have just moved into our new, much larger, freshly renovated 9,000 sq. ft. warehouse along Loop 410.
We personally source many of the batches of beans we roast, literally traveling to the growers to sample their coffee, negotiate a fair price and arrange shipment to San Antonio. Many of our specialty beans come from a single farm or even from a specific area on the farm (micro-terroir), so they are limited in quantity and superior in quality. We work to establish strong, long-term relationships based on good coffee and fair prices.
Once the beans reach us, we roast test batches, cup, taste, adjust, test some more, and finally - establish the perfect roast profile for the beans. We package the whole beans fresh from the roaster – rich, aromatic, at the peak of perfection.
Our coffees are brewed in our cafes and select restaurants, hotels and retail establishments. To enquire about partnering with us, just click here.
