Through philanthropy and conscientious business models, Big Bend Coffee Roasters has been serving the Big Bend region much more than coffee.
Owner and Master Roaster Joe Williams started Big Bend Coffee Roasters in October 2008. When he started the company, he focused on finding sustainably sourced coffee that was good for the environment, good for the workers, and good to the people. Through experimentation and research, Williams found his roasting technique, which coffee beans to buy, and ways to give to the community through his business.
Big Bend Coffee Roasters is USDA Organic Certified, and Fair trade and Kosher Certified. Becoming certified organic requires a lengthy paper trail citing how and where the crop is produced.
