Company Description

Zelie Beans Coffee is a specialty coffee roasting business sourcing high quality, ethically sourced coffee beans. We source our beans from family owned farms and believe in treating every person along the coffee chain, from soil to cup, as a human. Our mission is “Families helping families through specialty coffee.” Zelie Beans Coffee sources its coffee ethically, focusing on family owned farms in countries such as Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Honduras, Nicaragua, Kenya, and Ethiopia. We ensure that growers receive a fair price for their coffee, which allows them to reinvest into their farms and families. We determine the best possible roasting profile to bring out all the amazing natural flavors of that coffee. We then sell direct-to-consumer via our website, subscription service and wholesale. Here at Zelie Beans Coffee, we hope to provide our coffee knowledge to the public and for our message to resonate with the socially conscious coffee consumer, and make us a staple in households, coffee shops, restaurants, hotels, and churches. We hope to help the average customer become actively committed to our brand, and to help us get Zelie Beans out on their own.
