French Roast Organic & Fair Trade
French Roast is a term that has been around about as long as coffee. That' why Douglas Coffee has worked for over 20 years to develop theirs. They wanted something different. An Organic and Fair-Trade, blend of 3 coffees, Brazilian Serra Negra, Guatemala Antigua and Colombian Supremo are perfectly joined to make this exquisite cup.
Douglas Coffee RoastersSeattle in the 1960’s was a unique place for those interested in the coffee culture. New roasters were appearing, coffee shops were popping up, and an industry was reborn. Our roots start with Leo Douglas, the founder of our company. He moved to Seattle in the 1960’s and worked for a company then called Continental Coffee. As he created connections throughout the North West he expanded his knowledge of the coffee world and understood this was a burgeoning industry.
With a desire to return home to Salt Lake City, he packed his bags and his connections to some of the finest coffees the North West had to offer. Upon his return to Utah he began importing the coffee world of Seattle to the Salt Lake Area. As the population of Salt Lake grew, so did the demand for coffee. Leo soon moved his operation out of his garage in the foothills to a small warehouse just South of Salt Lake City.
Our operation has grown just like the city around us. Holding on the to the past is important to us, but so is moving forward with our goals and dreams. We have evolved as a company to offer only the finest in coffees from around the world.
