Here at the Bakehouse, we're proud to be a part of Counter Culture Coffee's mission. Here's what they have to say about their coffee, and their mission to farm, harvest and drink more sustainably:
"Building a sustainable business is central to Counter Culture Coffee's mission. It’s all about coffee that not only tastes good but also does good, from our local communities that drink the coffee to the communities around the world where it’s sourced.
Since our founding in 1995, Counter Culture Coffee has represented a different way of bringing coffee to market: sourcing incredible handmade coffees directly from farmers and cooperatives, and roasting so that we bring out their unique flavors.
We’re helping them share these great coffees as the fresh, seasonal fruits that they are. We only sell coffee at the peak of their flavor and freshness, so our selection of coffees grows and changes as we find other coffees to share. Our seasonal selection of single-origin coffees, microlots, and handcrafted blends are, to us, the best expression of coffee's diverse traditions and origins.
Because of their continual search for quality-driven coffee around the world, Counter Culture Coffee recognizes that freshness is paramount to quality, and they keep as little roasted coffee on hand as possible. They also roast to order so our coffee is roasted, bagged, and shipped for maximum goodness. All this dedication to quality allows them to trade in the real thing: delicious coffees straight from the amazing farms on which they were grown. Each coffee is labeled with the farm or co-op's real name, never obscuring the origin of coffee with marketing hype.
Sustainability and transparency are core values at Counter Culture Coffee, and these concepts guide every decision we make. And we believe that everyone in the coffee supply chain deserves to prosper. We strive for real environmental, social, and fiscal sustainability in everything we do, and we're proud to work with some of the most progressive and environmentally-sensitive farms in the coffee trade."
