more than fair certified
Ron Cortez, founder of Cortez Coffee and retired coffee picker, makes friendships with the world's most talented coffee farmers. On average, we pay 3-5x per pound compared to the current fair trade minimum.
Every batch is carefully & passionately roasted to bring out each origin's unique characteristics. Our unique air-roaster uses an indirect flame & the power of air to produce incredibly clean coffee with very little smoke contamination. Every batch is vigirously tested in our lab to ensure consistency and memorable taste.
family owned and operated
Our entire production team is ran by the Cortez family. Ron Cortez connects with coffee producers from around the world. His son, Patrick, roasts every batch of coffee. His two younger daughters hope to take over one day. From our family to yours, we promise outstanding coffee that is backed up by our passion and decades of experience in the industry.
roasted bean is not even, some bean looks harvest unripe
This is Patrick from Cortez Coffee. I am so sorry to hear about this! We use a Costa Rican blend called 'Volcancito' for Mr. White. It is roasted very lightly to retain a large caffeine content. Since the roast has little development the roast can appear 'uneven'. We are happy to send over some samples of other coffees we have if you are unsatisfied with Mr. White! I will send up a follow up email to make this right.
I refuse to drink anything else. My husband and I got new espresso machines and this is the only coffee we use and it’s amazing! All flavors are rich and unique but all so delicious!
All coffees are excellent.
My fav coffee !!
I've order many times without any problems or delays, this time I am still waiting for the delivery of my product :(
We apologize on not receiving your order. We just checked the tracking and it looks like the package was delayed by USPS but still in transit. We do our best to send out the coffee as fast as possible, but unfortunately sometimes there are delays with shipping companies. I will be following up with an email shortly. Thank you Susan!
