Colombian Supremo is the highest in quality. This coffee comes from a small family owned farm in the Cuaca region. A Direct Trade coffee helps us ensure the farm is taken care of and around for years to come.
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.
Coffee production in Colombia has a reputation as producing mild, well balanced coffee beans.
Colombia's average annual coffee production of 11.5 million bags is the third total highest in the world, after Brazil and Vietnam; though highest in terms of the arabica bean. The beans are exported to United States, Germany, France, Japan, and Italy. Most coffee is grown in the Colombian coffee growing axis region. In 2007, the European Union granted Colombian coffee a protected designation of origin status. In 2011 UNESCO declared the “Coffee Cultural Landscape” of Colombia, a World Heritage site.
