History: Coffee isn't what you get in a Styrofoam cup at a PTA meeting. It isn't something you can freeze dry or keep for six months in a can in your cupboard. Coffee is art. It's connection. And culture. It's Brazil. Ethiopia. Costa Rica. Coffee is spiritual. It's ritual. Coffee is the fruit of the earth and the sky—the seed of civilization. At least, that's how we feel about it at Crooked River Coffee Company. We custom roast all coffees to maximize freshness. Furthermore, whenever possible our coffees are procured from small farms or estates with socially and economically progressive policies. We are also proud of being the 1st Ohio roaster to receive USDA National Organic Program Certification by the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association. So when you buy from us you can be confident that at the same time you’re pleasing your palate, you’re doing the most to support the world's hard working coffee farmers. Crooked River Coffee – sowing the seeds of civilization, one cup at a time.
