Here’s the good news: At every stop on the long journey from a field in Guatemala (or Ecuador, Sumatra, Kenya, Ethiopia, Nicaragua, Mexico, or... you get the idea) to the cup in your hand at Rohs Street Cafe, good people pour their hearts and souls into your coffee. Our growers, roasters, and baristas don’t just know their business, they passionately love it too.
Now here’s the even better news: All those people are being treated fairly, with kindness and respect.
It starts out with the growers, of course. Because this cafe was literally born out of the relationships between members of University Christian Church and a special group of coffee farmers in Guatemala, Rohs Street has always been committed to the highest standards of fair and direct trade, as well as the highest standards of quality. If your coffee costs a few cents more here, that’s why: it's not going in our pockets, but straight back to those farmers.
Then there are our friends at Deeper Roots Coffee, who are not only world-class coffee roasters, but also world-class at training our baristas to expertly prepare your drink and explain just why it tastes so good. Deeper Roots also services our beloved, top of the line La Marzocco espresso machine, hand-made in Florence (Italy, not Kentucky) to be both beautiful and efficient.
Finally, there are our baristas themselves, who constantly strive to provide you with the best coffee experience possible, from the moment you walk in the door.
Wherever it starts out, our coffee is loaded with goodness by the time it gets to you.
