Our Story


A Letter From Our Owner & Founder, Joel

I first visited Yepocapa, Guatemala in November 2015. On this trip I got to see & experience first hand all that goes into producing coffee beans. I was captivated by the process of picking, processing the cherries, & drying the beans. But it was the farmers & people who captivated my heart. Their lifestyle, their hardship, & their inability to change their own circumstances made me want to help in some way. At the end of this trip Don Timeoteo, the president of La Cooperative San Pedrana, sent me home with five pounds of green coffee beans, & that is where my roasting story began.
I started roasting in a popcorn popper, then moved on to my oven, & then a Behmor. I began to research & experiment with the science of coffee beans & how roasting affects them. It was fascinating to me & I greatly enjoyed learning the variables I could control to improve the performance & flavors of the beans. As time went on more & more people asked to buy my beans after having a cup of my coffee. I was simply unable to produce enough beans to meet even a fraction of the demand & wanted to be able to control my roasts with more precision. So, we decided to take a step of faith, buy a bigger roaster, & jump into the adventure of starting our own business.
While in Guatemala I met many wonderful people & saw how much the coffee industry can change their circumstances. The farmers are extremely thankful for what they have & are so generous! Don Timeoteo actually went out on his own at the end of the day to get my 5lbs of green beans ready for me so that I could take them home. I could see the joy that it brought him to share the fruit of his labor with me!
Now, we have the opportunity to give back to Don Timeoteo, the other farmers, & the people of this village by roasting & selling Yepocapa Coffee to you! I have chosen to exclusively buy, roast, & sell coffee from regions that we have personal relationship with not just to make a profit, but to make a difference in peoples lives. We are starting with Yepocapa & will continue to pursue relationships across the world to help encourage and support farmers & their families from all walks of life!


Colegio Berea

I also fell in love with the teachers & children at this school. Since returning home we have been able to help raise money to replace one of their dirt floor rooms with tile floor, & to help meet other financial needs within the school. We would love to invest more into the children, teachers, & facilities!
