PT’s Coffee Roasting Co. is committed to working with coffee farmers who are true artisans of coffee cultivation and practice their craft with dedication, skill and passion. They work with, and offer their support to, these skilled artisan farmers for the sole purpose of presenting our customers only the highest-quality coffee.
They believe there are a number of critical factors contributing to the growth of a truly exceptional coffee, and that farmers are one of the key factors. Therefore they believe those who do great work should get a great price; they do not believe in coffee subsidies.
They believe that an artisan coffee farmer who grows an award-winning coffee should be given all the credit. Recognition develops dedication to craftsmanship, skill for production and passion for the harvest quality.
They know that great coffee can be produced through sustainable methods. They only work with farmers who think long and hard about economic, social, and environmental conditions of their farms and their communities. Sustainable does not have to mean organic, but it certainly could.
They seek to deliver the highest possible return to farmers and require their importers, exporters, cooperatives and farmers to agree upon the financial distribution prior to harvest and act transparently in the execution of distribution, allowing them to monitor the committed delivery price to the farmers.
They believe goals are more effectively achieved when the number of individuals or organizations between the coffee farmer and PT’s Coffee Roasting Co. are minimized to allow for better communication. Through their Direct Trade Coffee program they feel they can achieve an excellent quality coffee and promote a sustainable coffee crop.
