Once again, we’re honored to be named the best coffee roaster in Kansas by Food & Wine!
Praising our longevity and commitment to Direct Trade partnerships, they write:
“Back in 1993, before at least a few of the roasters on this list were born, Jeff Taylor and Fred Polzin were out in [Topeka] pioneering the notion of direct trade. Every bit as relevant today.”
This is our third time receiving this honor since Food & Wine premiered the list in 2018, and we couldn’t be happier. Founded as a single cafe in 1993 in Topeka, Kansas, we’re proud to have helped pioneer the Direct Trade model, working closely with farmers to ensure their long-term success.
To this day we source nearly 80% of our coffee through this program, still working to achieve that perfect cup of coffee from seed to cup.
