At Mountain Phoenix Coffee one of the most important aspects of our coffee is that we only purchase 100% Organic and Fair-Trade Coffee. We just don’t want our coffee to be great. We also want our coffee to be sustainably grown, without pesticides, and for our farmers to obtain a Fair Wage. You, the customer, should always have as much information as possible on the coffee you are enjoying.
Currently, Mountain Phoenix purchases all of our coffee through Royal Coffee Trading, based out of Emeryville, CA. In the past, we tried different Importers, and none to us were as impressive and carried the quality that Royal Coffee does. We have worked with our broker, Laurel Wirth, for over a decade, to the point that although we have actually never had the chance to meet in person, together we have developed a coffee tasting language, where I know exactly the coffee I am getting!
Most of our coffee is pre-purchased three months in advance, arriving to us when called upon.
