We love coffee and dogs, and not necessarily in that order.
The name and lovable face behind our brand, Hugo, is a rescue dog. So is his sister, Ruby. Prior to pursuing her passion for coffee, their adopted momma, Claudia, ran a rescue organization that lives on in Utah to this day. So, you could say that dog rescue is more than just a passion of ours; it’s deeply embedded in our culture.
For every bag of Hugo Coffee sold, a portion of the proceeds goes to support dog rescue, including Best Friends Animal Society. Our branded merchandise helps fund dog rescues across the country. We collaborate with our retail partners on adoption and education events, and we hold our own fundraisers. And then there is our flagship café in Park City, UT where every day we welcome two-legged and four-legged friends to socialize with staff and patrons and/or enjoy the adjacent dog park, all while taking in our majestic mountain views.
We’re more than just a dog friendly shop and coffee roaster. We make coffee with a paws. Our coffee is for the dogs. Literally.
Fair trade, organic, non GMO, responsible, ethical, sustainable, single origin, small batch… There’s a lot of terms applied to coffee nowadays. Here’s what we think matters and what we’re 100% committed to at Hugo Coffee Roasters.
