Delicious coffee that matches your values
Organic Fair Trade Coffee locally roasted in Philadelphia and delivered fresh to your doorstep.
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.
We source our coffee from Fair Trade and Organic certified cooperatives in Central and South America and the Pacific Islands, and source our African varietals through Crop to Cup. We are also a Certified Organic facility, a rare find in this region for this product.
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.
