Where are you located?
Our roastery is at 923 N. Christian St., Lancaster, Pa. Please don't send mail here.
What are your hours?
We don't have set hours, but can meet you almost anytime (Monday to Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.) for order pick ups, by appointment. Contact us beforehand to set up a time. You can also pick up orders at Souvlaki Boys.
Do you have a coffee shop?
No, but maybe someday. Currently, we have a manufacturing license, not a retail license.
Where can I get your coffee?
Your best bet for the freshest coffee is to order online and have it shipped to you, or pick it up (see above). You can also purchase a few of our blends at John Herr's Village Market in Millersville, Pa., and CommunityAid Stores in Harrisburg and York, Pa.
Which is your darkest roast?
We roast most of our coffees to medium-dark (also called full city). Typically, this balance of heat and time maximizes a coffee’s distinct flavors and maximizes its potential. The Community Blend is a bit darker.
Why is your coffee so good?
We're glad you like it! All of our coffees are organically grown. We use a unique air roast process so our coffees are not bitter. We roast in small batches to give the attention to the details of roasting. We also roast based on the orders that come in, so your coffee is as fresh as possible. And there's the good feeling that you get knowing that proceeds from almost all of our blends benefit non-profits that are doing good in this world. Read this blog entry for more information about why our coffee is the best around.
Why is your coffee more expensive than [insert big box name brand]?
No, this isn't a frequently asked question, at least directly. But it does come up, and we know that some people are probably embarrassed to ask. In addition to the costs associated with making the coffee taste so good (see above paragraph; for example, organically grown beans cost us more), we also only source coffee is fairly traded, so everyone in the process gets a fair wage.
Do you grow your own coffee?
Okay, so we only were asked this question one time. There is a lot to learn about coffee, and every week, we discover something new. We invite you to ask questions, especially if you're not sure if it's something that everyone else knows. We invite you on the journey! No, Pennsylvania doesn't have the climate for growing coffee.
