    Seattle SpaceNeedle Venia Coffee Roasters

    Spent a bit of time this weekend reflecting on the past few years of our lives and the wild and joyful ride it has been.  If you asked me several years ago if I would be starting a new coffee company in Seattle I would have laughed in your face and called you looney...I mean, wouldn't doing that be as silly as starting a new dot com 10 years ago?  Can you say "bust?"  Yet here we are, defying my inner critic, and moving forward with a dream that has so much more to it than me.

    From the first time I ordered a mocha my freshman year in college to get me through a sleepless night of studying, I was in love with coffee.  Nearly two decades later my love continues (albeit with a much more refined palate), and the quest for the perfect cup has become much more than a hobby.  It is now my career!  This makes me happy.

    We founded Venia Coffee on this love, and our backbone is one of deep commitment of quality and excellence.  We have built our business model in such a way as we are willing to pay more for green coffee that is responsibly sourced.  We pledge to never knowingly sell coffee that is the product of humanitarian exploitation.  We pledge to import coffee that provides fair wages to the farmers.  We also pledge to give a portion of our profits to organizations that advocate and care for some of the 146 million orphans in our world today.  We are dreaming Continue Reading

  • Join International Justice Mission's support of the TVPRA

    Posted on September 6, 2011 by Venia Coffee Roasters | Keith

    International Justice Mission

    While we rarely venture into the political realm, we do feel there are issues important to Venia Coffee's mission that warrant our involvement. International Justice Mission (IJM) has made us aware that the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) was introduced in the House of Representatives last week. This bi-partisan bill renews and strengthens the legislation that established U.S. programs to fight slavery at home and abroad.

    The current bi-partisan legislation governing U.S. anti-trafficking programs expires in a few short weeks. Let’s remind Congress that they have an opportunity to impact the lives of children, women and men living in slavery today. Will you join Venia Coffee in urging Congress to pass the TVPRA?

    Follow this link to the IJM website to send a e-letter to your Representative. Continue Reading

  • Our "Intern"

    Posted on September 2, 2011 by Venia Coffee Roasters | Keith

    Today I had the pleasure of being assisted by my photo "intern" while taking more product shots. He enjoyed all the cool new "coffee machines" and wanted me to teach him how to make coffee...I must be doing something right!
