Hand Roasting Your Favorite Coffees
Since 1994, we have been committed to supporting healthy people and a healthy planet. We value the communities and livelihoods of our coffee producers worldwide, and recognize our inter-connection and the power of our actions.
The Buena Vista Roastery supports our incredible mountain town through our Coffees for a Cause Program, through community volunteering, and so much more. We give back to our global community through our Kiva lending team, Holistic Management work, and our commitment to regenerative practices.
Our coffee is roasted to order, in small batches, to ensure you receive the freshest cup possible. We meticulously taste each coffee and act with intention when purchasing your favorites to ensure we are enhancing the lives of everyone along the production chain.
Through your purchase, you join us in our mission to enhance our global communities.
High Altitude ROASTING SINCE 1994
Beginning as Bongo Billy's Coffees in 1994, and transitioning into the Buena Vista Roastery in 2007, we've spent over 25 year perfecting the art of high altitude roasting. We work hard to ensure the cup you enjoy each day is consistent and fully embodies the uniqueness of the farm where it was grown.
Roasting your coffee at elevation requires longer roast times (due to less oxygen) allowing the sugars to fully caramelize, resulting in a smoother and more complex flavor that you will enjoy even after your cup cools.
Thriving Communities, Healthy Planet
We are dedicated to supporting sustainable, regenerative land management practices and the social, economic and environmental standards upheld by certifiers like Fair Trade USA and OCIA International. We also seek to constantly improve upon our choice of packaging materials and landfill output.
We recognize that our actions, and the choices we make for our company, have a global impact. We strive daily to consider our global neighbors, and the planet in our operations and interactions.
