At Quarter Horse Coffee we source green beans through our international suppliers.
We select beans by quality and seasonality, then test-roast them in small batches. Our team then evaluates them by flavour and we roast the favourites of these for use in our shops and for our wholesale customers.
During this process we also set aside a small selection that is sent exclusively to our Roast Master subscription-holders. Learn more about our Roast Master, and other subscription services here.
We are one of the only coffee roasters in the country to roast in-house and within full view of our cafe. Come by for a delicious coffee and you may be able to catch us in action.
HOW WE SOURCE OUR COFFEE
We source our green coffee through importers who work directly with the farmers, to develop lasting relationships with the people growing the beans, and create positive development at origin. This allows us to deliver coffee that is both ethically sourced, and of the highest quality.
An example of the work our importers do to promote positive change can be found in the Women Coffee Producers program, which we buy from whenever available. The program seeks to address inequality in coffee growing regions by creating equity, visibility and access to a wider market for women.
