From The Roaster
BEHIND OUR COFFEE
We take great pride in our green coffee sourcing. For our Direct Trade Nicaragua, we work very closely with a community in the El Pervonir region that sells directly to us. As for our other amazing single origin coffees, we work with some of the most reputable green coffee importers in the business.
THE LA TERZA ARTISAN COFFEE ROASTERIE TEAM
We are very fortunate to work with a team of people who bring over 20 years of coffee experience to the table. Chuck Pfhaler, the founder of La Terza, has been in the coffee-roasting business for the last 13 years, and our newest member to join our team is Robert Mbabazi who hails from Uganda, a major green coffee-producing nation. He has been working in the coffee industry for the last 10 years with a well-rounded experience from numerous perspectives ranging from World Barista Championship participations on three different occasions, cupping, roasting and a recent Q Grader's certification course.
So, as you can see, we are equipped with the knowledge to answer all of your coffee-related questions and to ensure that you enjoy your coffee to the fullest.
After traveling around major cities in and around the USA and beyond, and tasting some amazing coffees out there, our founder Chuck Pfhaler felt the need to do something in Cincinnati. It was that thirst for good coffee that pushed him to start La Terza to try and bridge that huge gap between the market flooding with chain coffee shops and, as he felt, the people not getting coffee that was worth the money spent. With all this in mind, the Idea and concept of La Terza was born.
We are passionate about sharing great coffee with all who we encounter! Every bag of roasted coffee is a treasure that then is brewed in many different forms for many different people. Our roasting facility is designed to help teach others how to get the most flavor out of every coffee through roasting tours, public cuppings, brewing classes, as well as having space available for great conversations. We are also very active in community-based events like farmers markets and we're proud to be the exclusive coffee supplier for the band, Over The Rhine.
