We strive to import the highest quality coffees from farms worldwide and roast them in small batches in Florida. Our preferred beans come from ColombiaBrazil, and Honduras.

Our coffee beans are sourced from farms in The Coffee Triangle, known as the Coffee Region or Eje Cafetero, in Colombia. This area has an excellent reputation for growing coffee and comprises the Caldas, Quindío, and Risaralda departments. Notable cities such as Manizales, Armenia, and Pereira are essential coffee production and tourism centers. The Coffee Triangle is where Colombia’s finest Arabica coffee beans are produced.

Kaffa® collaborates with the Don Manolo Coffee Farm in the Risaralda department. This farm cultivates, selects, and roasts Arabica coffee grown at an altitude of 1,500 to 1,600 meters above sea level. Additionally, Kaffa® works with San Alberto Farm, a producer of superior-quality coffee grown in Buenavista, Quindío department. San Alberto Farm produces a unique boutique coffee on steep hills through highly selective cultivation methods. They do not engage in mass production.

We also source our coffee beans from Brazil, the world’s largest producer of coffee. We buy them at coffee farms in the Mogiana and Alta Mogiana regions of São Paulo, known for their high-quality Arabica coffee beans. The region’s favorable climate, altitude, and fertile soils contribute to the excellent coffee production. To ensure sustainable and quality practices, we work with Fazenda São Francisco farm in Patrocinio Paulista municipality, São Paulo state, just 12.5 miles away from Franca city in the Alta Mogiana region. The farm is known for its exceptional production practices that emphasize socio-environmental sustainability.

We purchase coffee from the Copán region in western Honduras, well-known for its coffee production. The region’s high altitude, fertile volcanic soil, and favorable climate create excellent conditions for growing Arabica coffee. Copán coffee farms produce specialty-grade beans with notable flavor profiles. In Honduras, Kaffa works with Cafe Welchez in the western highlands.

Not all fair trade coffee is organic, though roughly half are. There is much overlap between the fair trade certification process and the organic certification process. While the environmental standards of fair trade coffee are rigorous, organic standards go farther with environmental sustainability practices.

Kaffa® coffee comes from farms that are certified as having been produced to fair trade standards by fair trade organizations, which create trading partnerships that are based on dialogue, transparency, and respect, with the goal of achieving greater equity in international trade. Farmers who trade coffee with Kaffa, LLC receive a fair price, and their communities and the environment benefit as well. Fair-trade certified coffee directly supports a better life for farming families in the developing world through fair prices, community development, and environmental stewardship. Coffee is better for farmers, better for the environment, and better for those who appreciate high-quality, organically grown coffee. Choosing fairly traded, organic coffee has a real and meaningful impact in all three areas.

The best way to keep ground coffee or whole beans fresh is to store the coffee on a pantry shelf in an opaque, airtight container.

Choose a cool, dark, dry place, such as in a pantry or cabinet. Do not store coffee in the refrigerator or freezer; the humidity can cause moisture to infiltrate the packaging. Avoid warm spots, such as above/next to the oven or in cabinets that get hot from exposure to sunlight or cooking equipment.

To preserve your beans’ fresh roasted flavor as long as possible, store them in an opaque, air-tight container at room temperature. Coffee beans can be beautiful, but avoid clear canisters which will allow light to compromise the taste of your coffee.

Once you’ve opened a Kaffa® package, don’t leave it in the package. Instead, store it in an air-tight container. Minimize air space in the container as much as possible. Ordinary kitchen canisters can do an acceptable job if they can be tightly closed and there is little air space along with the coffee.

Roasting coffee is a process that requires some equipment and careful attention to detail. Here are the basic steps for roasting fresh coffee:

  1. Choose your beans: Start with high-quality, fresh coffee beans. Look for beans that are less than two weeks old and have a strong aroma.

  2. Preheat your roaster: If you have a coffee roaster, preheat it according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If you don’t have a roaster, you can use an oven, a popcorn popper, or even a frying pan.

  3. Measure the beans: Measure out the amount of beans you want to roast. A good starting point is about 1/2 cup of beans for a small batch.

  4. Roast the beans: Place the beans in the roaster or other equipment and start the roasting process. The roasting time and temperature will depend on your equipment and personal preference. As the beans roast, they will go through several stages, including yellow, cinnamon, medium, and dark roast. Pay close attention to the color and smell of the beans to determine when they are done.

  5. Cool and store the beans: Once the beans are roasted to your liking, remove them from the roaster and cool them quickly by spreading them out on a baking sheet or other flat surface. Stir them occasionally to help them cool evenly. Once they are cool, store them in an airtight container away from light and heat.

Remember that roasting coffee can be a bit of trial and error, so don’t be afraid to experiment with different beans, temperatures, and roasting times to find the perfect roast for your taste.

#1 – Baratza Virtuoso+ Conical Burr Coffee Grinder. Best for folks who are well-acquainted with concepts like flow rate, brew time, and extraction level; who use scales to measure everything and know their bean-to-water ratio by weight; who prefer light to medium roasts that present more of a bean’s inherent flavors; and who usually drink their coffee black.
