New Roast: Fisherman's Blend
Fisherman's Blend, our latest seasonal release, was created and launched to honor Juan Ortiz III, our friend and coworker, whom we lost in February of 2021. Juan was a vibrant young man who loved fishing with his father. We named this coffee Fisherman's blend to remember his passions. In honor of Juan, all proceeds from this product will be donated to a charity in his name.
We have a small staff so we all wear different hats to run our business. In unison to the idea of Fair Trade coffee, we believe our employees also deserve higher than usual wages. Each of our employees, from roasting and packing, customer service and sales, to demo and farmers market staff, work hard to support our mission in delivering delicious coffee grown by real people.
Meet Our Roaster
Our roastmaster, Joe Cesa, has been micro-roasting coffee in Philadelphia since 2002. The commitment to Fair Trade started then and was carried on to Philly Fair Trade Roasters in 2010, when he joined with partners to launch a Fair Trade coffee roasting company. Our roasting facility is in the Feltonville section of North Philly and from there we produce high-quality, roasted coffee.
