Costa Rican Farm
We exist to serve and supply roasters with the highest quality beans from around the world. Our reputation has been built by how we serve and supply roasters throughout Canada and the United States. We like to think we are a roaster’s best friend. If we can inspect, sample, judge and critique beans, farms, and mills against our high standards, and only buy the best with consistency, then we feel we are helping roasters and coffee shops attract and retain a loyal following. Isn’t that what it is all about? In fact, we are not only suppliers of specialty green beans, but we are also educators, advisors, and friends to roasters who rely on us for their most valuable business resource. Before we accept a batch for shipment, we have multiple experts on our team to judge and grade the quality and consistency of the beans to see if they agree upon taste, body, and overall profile so that we get it right for you. Our team has the most discriminating roasters when it comes to quality, and we never ever compromise.

Why We Care About Farms
We love our industry just like we love our coffee. For all of us in the industry, farmers, mills, vendors, traders, roasters, coffee shop owners, and everyone in between, we do it for passion. But we also recognize that our precious resource is the farms. Without them, the industry would collapse. It is becoming increasingly difficult for farms to make a profit, especially the larger farms. They face uphill battles with governments, weather, workers, disease, and the changing demands of importers and consumers like us. The large family-owned coffee plantations of the past are a dying breed. Family farms are not passed down to their children like they used to be, and sometimes they have to sell the land for other uses, divest, or compromise just to cope. We want to call more attention to this and help educate and support these farms so they may produce the quality required to command the prices they need to survive.

The Important Role Coffee Importers Have As Wholesale Coffee Suppliers
When you wake up to a great cup of coffee, sip one in the afternoon, or have one at a cafe with friends, you hardly think of what it took to create that cup of enjoyment. That cup of coffee started in a far-off country with great passion and toil. If it was a good cup of coffee it was probably served by a roaster or barista that put care and passion into making it. Regardless of when and where you had your coffee, a coffee importer had to put due diligence into assessing and acquiring the highest quality green beans to ensure exceptional flavors and aromas. As wholesale coffee suppliers, importers have the immense responsibility of understanding the art and science of coffee roasting, brewing, and especially tasting (cupping) coffee. If coffee importers get it wrong, there is hardly much a roaster or barista can do to make it great. Wholesale coffee suppliers and importers must visit farms around the world to understand how stable crops are …
