We are happy to announce our return to Roaste.com. Some of you may be familiar with us from a couple of years in the past, and we are happy to be back online at Roaste.com. For those of you who are unfamiliar with us, we would like to take this time to introduce ourselves.
PT's Coffee Roasting Co. began in the side room of a Topeka, KS restaurant in 1993. An intense passion for coffee and better quality, led us to roasting our own coffee in 1997. Since then, we have grown significantly with an emphasis on artisan roasting focusing on freshness and a large range of specialty coffee sourced directly from origin.
We stand by our Direct Trade philosophy, and give credit where credit is due, to the farmer. We are committed to working with coffee farmers who are true artisans of coffee cultivation and practice their craft with dedication, skill and passion. We work with, and offer our support to, these skilled artisan farmers for the sole purpose of presenting our customers only the highest-quality coffee. There are a number of critical factors contributing to the growth of a truly exceptional coffee, and the farmers are the key factor. Therefore we believe those who do great work should get a great price; we do not believe in coffee subsidies.
Working with producers to deliver the highest-quality coffee for our customers requires that we listen and give feedback in their creation. We believe that an artisan coffee farmer who grows an award-winning coffee should be given all the credit. Recognition develops dedication to craftsmanship, skill for production and passion for the harvest quality. We know that great coffee can be produced through sustainable methods. We only work with farmers who think long and hard about economic, social, and environmental conditions of their farms and their communities. Sustainable does not have to mean organic, but it certainly could.
We seek to deliver the highest possible return to farmers and require our importers, exporters, cooperatives and farmers to agree upon the financial distribution prior to harvest and act transparently in the execution of distribution, allowing us to monitor the committed delivery price to the farmers.
We believe our goals are more effectively achieved when the number of individuals or organizations between the coffee farmer and PT's Coffee Roasting Co. are minimized to allow for better communication. Through our Direct Trade Coffee program we feel we can achieve an excellent quality coffee and promote a sustainable coffee crop.
In addition to our Direct Trade sourcing efforts, we roast all of our coffee to order, to ensure you only receive the freshest coffee. "Our passion for coffee doesn’t stop with roasting the world’s best coffee - we’re also passionate about its preparation and service".
