We are proud to have Gold Country Roasters

coffee partners. Gold Country Roasters is an independent, artisan coffee roasting company and coffeehouse located in Murphys – the heart of California’s historic “Gold Country.” They have been proudly roasting and serving high quality coffees to retail and wholesale customers since 2012.
What is Bird Friendly®
certified coffee is shade grown on plantations and farms that have agreed to adhere to strict, scientifically based standards for preservation of tropical forest ecosystems, in order to maintain and enhance habitat for native and migratory birds. Rather than being grown on land that has been cleared of all other vegetation, Bird Friendly
® coffees are planted under a canopy of native trees. Not only is the Bird Friendly®
certification better for tropical rainforests, it also results in a superior tasting coffee. Shade grown coffee ripens more slowly, resulting in a harder, denser bean with a cleaner, more “fruit forward” flavor. Learn more…
