OUR COFFEE

What are the keys to a fantastic tasting coffee?

Quality single origin beans, perfectly roasted by our own Catalyst roast master, prepared in small batches to make sure they get to you fresh, kept whole so you can put them in your grinder mere seconds before you’re ready to brew.

At Catalyst, we sell “Farm Gate” Direct Trade Coffee.

  • “Farm Gate” is the name our coffee sources give to their coffee buying program. Farm Gate pricing means that they have negotiated a price directly with the farmer “at the farm gate,” that is without any of the confusing export and import fees.
  • Without those fees, the prices we pay for our coffees are above Fair Trade minimums, and with our Farm Gate coffees we can easily verify that the good price we pay makes it to the people who do the work, (They guarantee that Farm Gate prices are 50% over Fair Trade pricing, but often they are 100%+ more that Fair Trade minimums.) and are responsible for the great cup quality of our coffee.
  • Farm Gate is a simple principle that allows coffee producers to make premium prices in reward for coffee quality, and to reinvest to improve quality even more in the future. See CoffeeShrub.com.
  • Need a little help in creating a cup of coffee that is so good you can’t help but smile? We print advice for making amazing coffee, by yourself, right on every bag. Life is too short to drink bad coffee.
Oh… and 100% of profits from sale of these beans go to support community-based nonprofits, just like everything else at Catalyst Coffee!
