Discover the
amazing world
of coffee
Being just a roaster is not enough. We believe that ensuring the highest quality standards and creating lasting impact means actually working with partners at origin. 
Paying above fair trade
We always pay our farmer partners above "fair-trade" prices. Not only is it the right thing to do—it also helps these passionate, talented farmers invest in quality coffee year after year. Together we can support the future of coffee.
Preventing Debt in Nicaragua
In Nicaragua, the average interest rate for a loan is 27%. Most coffee farms taking these loans end up in a never-ending cycle of debt. To help break this cycle, we provide two farms with advance payment. The result? A 50% increase in profits for our partners and a healthier, more sustainable workforce at the farm. 
Using Education to Drive Sustainable Revenue
In India, we’ve focused our impact efforts on education. All coffee harvests produce some coffee cherries that are under-ripe and often tossed out. Using a process borrowed from wine marketing, anaerobic fermentation, our team’s partnership brought new life and more sweetness to cherries that may have otherwise been worthless. The result? A more delicious cup and new revenue for the team at Riverdale Estates.

Environmental impact

Because we think the future of premium coffee is intrinsically tied to the future of our earth’s environmental health, we pack our products in 100% recycled packaging.

With 100k+ happy customers and an incredible list of global partners in Burundi, India, Guatemala, Brazil, and more, our largest accomplishment is already underway - bringing our mission to life.
Better Than Specialty
Premium. Third Wave. Specialty. The list of marketing buzzwords in our industry is endless. Amongst professionals, there is one standard – the Specialty Coffee Association’s 100 point scale. “Specialty coffee” must score at 80 points or above. And, you’d be surprised how many of your favorite brands score well below that. At Atlas, we always purchase coffees that are multiple points above the Specialty standard.
Industry Awards
We’re honored for our mission to be recognized by the industry’s most important watchdogs and tastemakers. Bon Appétit, The New York Times, Food & Wine, and more. Recently, Good Housekeeping awarded us for going where most roasters won’t - making the world’s first great Keurig® compatible coffee pod. We don’t take the recognition lightly. There’s so much more we want to do for you, our partners, and the world of coffee.

Join us on the journey

We get it—there are many coffee brands to choose from. We hope that when you’re faced with that decision, you choose to support one whose hands are caked with dirt after a long day of picking in Brazil. Who exchange family photos with their coffee growing partners over the holidays. Or, who have hugged the children whose school they helped build in Guatemala.
Our team is here to guide you in discovering the best coffees and teas from around the world.
