Sustainability

Sustainability has become quite the buzz-word the past couple of years. In the past 12 months, more and more frequently you are hearing it relating to agriculture. This single word is thrown around so much, I wonder if people have forgotten, or never realized just how much power it has? When I hear people talking about it, I wonder in what context they are trying to utilize it in? Are they talking in human factors, environment, repeatability, profit, faith, or what?  Within the coffee industry, we have such "traceables" as Certified Fair Trade, Certified Organic, Rain Forest Alliance Certified, UTZ Certified, Bird Friendly Certified, International Women's Coffee Alliance, Biodynamic, among others.

I remember I began to appreciate that coffees had their own qualities and character. I so enjoyed the beverage, I wanted to learn more about where the beans were grown, how they were harvested, how they made it across the globe to the local distributors and finally to the coffee shops.

What are you going to get from BRIDGE COFFEE CO.?

The coffees offered at BRIDGE COFFEE CO. are very specifically selected to help you bridge from your love of coffee to a new appreciation of why you love it. Additionally, Fair Trade is extremely important to me. I want the farmers that work so hard, laboring to provide me with this fantastic product get what they deserve as well.
