Organic and shade grown coffee roasted by family owned Alta Organic Coffee Warehouse & Roasting Co. in Santa Cruz. Also offering green beans for home roasters.
From: Alta Organic Coffee Warehouse & Roasting Co.
We have partnered with a local family run coffee roasting company right down the street from us on the Westside. Alta Organic Coffee Warehouse & Roasting Co.share a lot of the same growing beliefs that we do and their coffee is GREAT! Just recently, they made the switch to compostable coffee bags! Just remove the tin folding tie and put the bag in your compost pile!
We will offer their seasonal whole bean coffee in 12 oz. bags. Please check in often to see what the current crops are.
