About Us

HOW DID WE GET HERE?

It was the summer of 2016 when we found our bearings while reading a historical account about how coffee first reached America. The navigators of those 17th century cargo ships crossed the ocean by using the night sky to find their own bearings, bringing coffee and a new daily custom that would last for centuries to our shores. That’s when we knew we wanted to make great coffee. Bearings Coffee released its first product in March 2017.

Sure, we’re interested in flavor. But we’re also fascinated by the power of coffee to bring people together, and the stories that very human connection can create.

Because it’s a cultural connection, coffee is an important part of our lives. But it’s also a business, and when done well, it can be a successful one. We like to share our success with good citizenship organizations in our community. Maybe a coffee drink might help you discover what’s possible in your own hometown?  

HOW DO WE CREATE OUR COFFEE BLENDS?

Reading: We look at coffee cocktails, stories about coffee pioneers, cultural occasions and think about creating a coffee blend that’s unique to each.

Science: We think about a taste profile to match the drink or story and after consulting with taste specialists, we come up with a flavor profile for the coffee.

Geography: With that flavor profile in-hand, we look at what coffee producing regions are in season and figure out what coffees match the flavors we're seeking.

Arithmetic: Once we know our source countries, we knock on the door of some great coffee roasting companies to collaborate with us on preparing the coffee blend that makes it all worthwhile.

If you’d like to collaborate with us, we’re happy to chat! Send a note to: owner@bearingscoffee.com and include your phone number so, we can call you.
