Sustainable Coffee at Hugo

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:


FAIR TRADE

Hugo Coffee Roasts Dog Rescue Coffee Sustainable Coffee

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 than traditional coffee roasters. A second machine called an oxidizer processes particulates and smoke created during the roasting process, leaving the air cleaner. 

CONSISTENT, FRESH COFFEE

  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.
