11 minutes. It takes eleven minutes of sunlight falling on our solar-electric panels to generate the electricity required to roast 8 pounds of our luscious coffee. We are a hand-roaster of small-batches of carefully selected coffee beans.
We purchase our coffee beans through the farm gate, from small-lot farmers who care deeply about their plants, their land and the quality of the coffee they produce. (Some of our coffee beans come from 150-year-old shrubs. You don’t get that old unless you have been taken care of!) We guarantee our customers that we pay a minimum of 50% more than Fair Trade coffee, ensuring the well being of our producer-partners.
Our coffee is blended or supplied as distinctive single-origin varietals, often from farms smaller than 10 acres. Being a small roaster and having access to limited-production farms allows Fluid to provide our customers with distinctive, select coffee options.
We work with our customers to ensure that the right bean and roast have been selected, so that the journey from the farm to your cup creates an enjoyable drinking experience.
