We love coffee and dogs, and not necessarily in that order.
Fair trade, organic, non GMO, responsible, ethical, sustainable, single origin, small batch… There are 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:
Ensuring the health, safety and happiness of everyone involved in producing Hugo products is of paramount importance to us. The majority of beans we procure are certified Fair Trade Organic. Sometimes, however, we deal with small family farms and/or co-ops. In the case of single estates, we know who is growing the beans and managing the farm. In the case of cooperatives, we know how they’ve come to be and that schooling, healthcare and fair labor practices are ensured for all family members.
Because the small coffee farms and co-ops we source from aren’t always able to supply the quantities we need, our Head Roaster, John, considers everything from varietal to region to the precise altitude beans were grown at in order to inform Hugo Coffee’s small batch approach to roasting. This tightly controlled process and the subsequent blends are how we ensure your sacred coffee ritual remains consistent day in and day out.
