Roasting coffee is a passion and at the core of what Tierra Mia Coffee offers to our customers on a daily basis. Tierra Mia Coffee purchases only choice, micro lot coffees in order to offer in our stores the absolute best tasting and highest quality coffee in the world. The coffees arrive to us green and unroasted and we apply highly analytical and rigorious roast practices to bring out the best flavors of each bean. But roasting coffee is both a science and an art, and our passionate roasting group works to make each batch of coffee roasted their own masterpiece.
Because we purchase micro lot coffees, Tierra Mia Coffee pays some of the highest prices in the coffee industry, usually 100% and sometimes 400% above fair trade price levels. The higher prices that we pay allows our farmers to achieve higher incomes, reinvest in best practices at the farm level, and create a level of sustainability that benefits the farmer and his family. In turn, by creating sustainability at the farm level, we ensure that in years to come the coffee that Tierra Mia Coffee customers taste improves and only gets better through every harvest.
