What Are Hermetically Sealed Bags?
All our coffees are sourced in hermetically sealed bags (GrainPro) due to the quality of life benefits received by smallholder farmers such as 20 – 70% increase in revenue to common market value, food/crop loss prevention, and environmental impact by farmers not having to use synthetics or harmful chemicals.
What Do Hermetically Sealed Bags Help With?
Food Loss Prevention
GrainPro products help reduce food losses and improve food quality by protecting agriculture commodities against insect infestation, mold growth, oxidation, and rancidity.
Increased Value for Farmers
The ability to ensure product quality and sustainability allows farmers to better time market dynamics (supply/demand) and sell their products at optimal times.
GrainPro bags help lock in freshness during the long trip from the farm to our roaster. The GrainPro bags are an extra layer beneath coffee's traditional burlap sacks which help prevent odors, mold, or moisture buildup.
How GrainPro Impacts Flavor
The Power of GrainPro on Flavor and Quality
GrainPro bags keep our green coffee completely sealed so that no odors, mold, or moisture can seep into the beans on their journey to our roaster. GrainPro also allows for safekeeping while at our facility and continues to protect the coffee until it is ready for use.

Carbon Neutral OperationsLearn More
Everything we make, buy and sell, leaves a carbon trail that we are responsible for reducing. Our first step of action is to offset our prior years' operation and then set ourselves on a path for naturally reducing our emissions through thoughtful business choices.
Freshness and QualityLearn More
We put a freshness, quality, and consistency guarantee into every bag of our coffee. For freshness, we source our raw materials during the current and optimal season. All of our blends and single origins are of the highest quality ranging from 86 – 89pt+. Finally, consistency comes down to roasting in small controlled batches for the perfect flavor profile.
World Coffee ResearchLearn More
Coffee plants are at risk due to drastic climate changes, among many other factors. This is why we teamed up with World Coffee Research's effort to improve the crop's sustainability and the farmers' livelihood who grow it. The most efficient way to solve these issues for both businesses and farmers is through collaborative scientific research and development.
Hermetically Sealed BagsLearn More
All our coffees are sourced in GrainPro bags due to the quality of life benefits received by smallholder farmers, such as a 20 – 70% increase in revenue to standard market value. GrainPro products help reduce food losses and improve food quality by protecting agriculture commodities against insect infestation, mold growth, oxidation, and rancidity.
Donations at CheckoutLearn More
To further support the causes we love, we implemented an "add a donation" option at checkout. Right now, we are supporting One Tree Planted who aids in revitalizing forests in coffee-growing regions and Grounds for Health who's mission is to prevent cervical cancer in coffee communities.
Our Future Goals and StoryLearn More
From the start and throughout this entire journey, we knew the cornerstone of our coffee program would be sustainability, quality, consistency, and freshness. As we continue to grow, we will build stronger ties with local communities and strengthen the economies and the ecosystems of the countries that our products originate.
