Our Story

Read below to join our unique journey from

bean to cup:

 

Step One

Travel to Costa Rica during peak harvest season

Why purchase coffee from a random warehouse when you can purchase it directly from the farmer who grew it? We have personally visited the farms behind every coffee sold. No exceptions.

Step Two

Visit dozens of farmers and meet with the producers behind the beans

We look for much more than just incredible tasting coffee. Gaia Coffee Co. only sells beans from farmers who use sustainable practices, pay fair wages, and who we build a genuine connection with.

Step Three

Crafted from recycled and sustainably grown fibers.

Step Three

Review farming practices to ensure environmental standards and the fair treatment of all workers

Coffee pickers around the world often face great injustices. One of our top priorities is making sure the farms we work with truly value their pickers and provide kind wages and living conditions.

Step Four

Sample hundreds of different coffees searching for beautiful and unique flavor profiles

We spend MONTHS traveling around Costa Rica searching for special coffees. The beans you purchase are selected from a wide range of the country's finest.

Step Five

Decide on a fair price with the farmer

After seeing just how much physical labor goes into producing coffee the RIGHT way, we made it our mission to pay a fair price for every coffee purchased. That is why our price is negotiated with the farmer instead of a middleman to make sure everyone in their production line gets paid a fair wage. 

Step Six

Export and import the coffee through a direct-trade model

From purchasing, to exporting, and importing, our team is involved in every step of the process. 

Step Seven

Craft roast in small batches

Our specialty coffee is craft roasted in Lewes, Delaware. We spend weeks developing a specific roasting profile for every individual coffee sold to highlight the sweetness and naturally occurring flavors in each unique bean.

Step Eight

Packaged to order in earth friendly materials 

Feel good about your purchase knowing we use products that are kind to GAIA (aka Mother Earth). Don't forget to recycle your coffee bag and delivery box!

Step Nine
