From The Roaster
We never compromise our sourcing practices; meaning you can rest assured that the farmers who worked so hard to produce your coffee were paid fairly and treated well throughout the process. Lastly, we want to make the world a better place for all people and therefore donate 10% to local and overseas community development programs. Holy Schmidt Coffee Co. exists to help humanity flourish. We don't sell coffee to be cool. We sell coffee to ensure farmers receive fair wages and safe working conditions. We sell coffee to help create a school for refugee children in Ethiopia. We sell coffee to provide warmth and hygienic conditions for the homeless of Los Angeles. We want people to more than exist, we want them to flourish, and we do that through coffee. Bijou (husband) began his coffee roasting journey in a small apartment kitchen with a 1980s popcorn popper. The mess it made and time it took were nothing compared to the amazing flavor produced by fresh beans. Thus our coffee adventure was born, as well as our mission to help humanity flourish one bean at a time. We helped move a team to Ethiopia to establish roots and build a school for refugee children. Every bag of coffee means hope to those without.
