What We Offer
Although we consider ourselves an all-around resource for the coffee industry these days, we got our start by purchasing and selling a single bag of green coffee and connecting producers with roasters is still the heart of our business. Not sure what you need or where to start? Get in touch—we’re always happy to help.
Our hybrid classes cover a range of topics, from green coffee sourcing to roasting and brewing. Each class is taught by an industry expert who brings years of training and on-the-job experience to the table.
Take your skills to the next level with one-on-one instruction from a coffee professional. Our consulting services include personal roasting lessons, bar skills, cup quality, sensory skills training, and more.
If you’re in Oakland, we’d be delighted to have you visit our Tasting Room, where you can experience the full spectrum of specialty coffee. Our tasting room is located in the heart of Uptown, alongside some of the biggest names in the Oakland culinary scene.
