Roasted in Origin
Our mission is simple: promote high-quality seed to cup specialty coffee that's roasted in origin by the very people who plant the seeds. Our motive lies on our efforts to re-inject the profits made across the entire coffee supply chain back into the origin and birth place of each coffee. It's our aim to do our part in supporting the origin to the best of our ability through environmental and social sustainability.
Our origin partners have incredible stories that must be told and have skills that go beyond coffee production and processing. Their stories highlight overcoming struggles and hardships through tenacity, dedication, and hard-work. Their hard-work and dedication has culminated into a perfected art of coffee production, roasting, and brewing. It is our goal to show the world the amazing skills and arts that have been perfected in origin.
Us Versus Them
What makes Taste the Origin unique and different? We provide you an experience that you won't be able to find anywhere. We offer exclusive coffees produced and roasted directly from the source. The only hands touching these coffees before they get to you are the producers and their families.
To understand how we operate, the diagram below compares a standard supply chain model versus our supply chain model. By no means one is better than the other but rather each provides a different taste to your experience. Our model is simple: Coffee is harvested, processed, freshly roasted per order, and packaged at the source. Other models use third-parties to move their coffees to be roasted and packaged in the US.
For too long, profits across the industry have been heavily imbalanced with little being left for the origin. With Taste the Origin, we will lead a long-term systemic change across the entire specialty coffee industry.
