About

We love coffee and dogs, and not necessarily in that order. 

 

DOG RESCUE

Proceeds from every bag of Hugo Coffee sold support dog rescue organizations, including Best Friends Animal Society Utah and Nuzzles & Co. Additionally, we collaborate with our retail partners on adoption and education events, and we hold our own fundraisers all to add to our give back.

QUALITY COFFEE

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.

 

FAIR TRADE

Ensuring the health, safety and happiness of everyone involved in producing Hugo Coffee 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.  

 

SAFE & SUSTAINABLE ROASTING
Hugo Coffee Roasters is located in a progressive mountain community that celebrates its natural environment. Park City and Summit County, Utah have pledged to run on 100% renewable energy by 2032. We’re doing our small part in a couple of important ways. Our Diedrich roaster heats Hugo Coffee beans with a combination of natural gas and infrared heat, thereby using less energy. A second machine called an oxidizer processes particulates and smoke created during the roasting process, thereby leaving the air quite a bit cleaner.

 

CONSISTENT, FRESH COFFEE
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.
