Progress

From a seedling in a nursery bursting out of the earth’s soil, to a warm cup welcoming the potential a new day can bring—coffee’s very nature seems to be ingrained with the notion of progress. At Café Imports, we take our morning coffee as an important symbol of the work we set out to accomplish throughout every day. As one of our driving principles, we strive to make progress in every aspect of our work: strengthening community, developing quality, and practicing environmental responsibility. Great coffee doesn't end with the harvest, with the roast, or even with the brew—we recognize that every step along a coffee's timeline from seed to cup is a sign of its progress, something we try to emulate in the business that we do and the lives that we lead. The demand for quality coffee offers an opportunity to collaborate and create momentum together along every aspect of the supply chain, from seed to cup. We look forward to discovering where this forward progress will lead, but we are also dedicated to engaging with and enjoying the journey in the meantime.
