A signature blend that celebrates the Land of Shining Mountains and Montana’s Big Sky. A heavy body and smooth finish have made this a classic Yellowstone Coffee roast since 1998.
While traveling down the Yellowstone River in 1806, Captain William Clark named a small stream lined with giant Cottonwood Trees, Big Timber Creek. Several decades later, pioneers settled the area, and designated the settlement Big Timber after the Lewis and Clark expedition.
This signature blend goes way back to Yellowstone Coffee’s foundation and has remained a long-time favorite for early mornings on the river.
Buffalo Blend is a tribute to the American bison that have called Yellowstone home since prehistoric times. This coffee is a crowd pleaser for folks who enjoy a bold, dark roast.
If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. Mother Nature that is! Supporting healthier rainforests and sustainable farming communities is paramount in our business, and you can taste the devotion in every sip.
Our original treeline can is filled with more than a coffee that gets your morning rolling. Buffalo Blend is Rainforest Alliance Certified, and a portion from every purchase is donated to the Greater Yellowstone Coalition. These cans make thoughtful gifts or fun home decor!
We first discovered this coffee while attending the inaugural Inza Cup competition in Cauca, Colombia during December 2017. Alongside Cafe Imports, we sampled numerous coffees from the region and found this particular offering from producer Nini Johana Rojas to be our favorite.
Nini owns a one hectare microlot farm where she has planted over 3,000 castillo trees in the southern Colombian hillsides. Nini pays special attention to her crop, choosing only perfectly ripe cherries and allows them to ferment for 24 hours before the drying period. Alongside the help of Banexport, Nini and other producers are setting a higher standard for specialty coffee throughout all of Colombia.
AMACA is a female coffee collective located in Colombia’s Cauca region. This collective is comprised of 140 female producers who derive their livelihoods through the cultivation and production of coffee. Not only do these producers hold strong core values, but their coffees are also delicious.
The purchase of this coffee provides AMACA members a premium for their product. This premium helps strengthen communities in Southern Colombia and improves the well-being of the producers’ families.
In 2003, a farmer named Joachim Munganga restored a washing facility in the remote Lake Kivu region in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Joachim's restoration efforts inspired the founding of the SOPACDI cooperative which has since grown to more than 5,000 active members, many of whom are women.
The SOPACDI was the first cooperative to achieve Fair Trade and Organic certifications in Congo and members of the organization represent several distinct ethnic groups.
This Costa Rica offering comes from the CoopeDota cooperative located in a small town called Santa Maria de Dota in central Costa Rica. Founded in 1960, CoopeDota has since expanded to 850 active members and is renown for being certified as the world's first carbon neutral coffee cooperative in March 2011.
CoopeDota continually strives to create a sustainable economic impact in the San Jose province, all while following a strict environmental protocol to maintain carbon neutrality and ensure that coffee may continue to grow in the world's changing climate.
In Costa Rica's Tarrazu province, Cafe Imports has worked alongside the CoopeTarrazu cooperative to create the Community Coffee Program. Through this program, select coffees from the Leon Cortes region of central Costa Rica are chosen with an emphasis in quality and traceability.
The Community Coffee Program pays a premium for the labor intensive work required in selecting these exceptional coffees and provides producers opportunities to receive recognition and compensation for their quality crop.
We believe decaf coffee should taste good! The integrity and flavor of this coffee are maintained through sugarcane decaffeination, an extraction process in which green coffee beans soak in a natural sugar solution. Our primary decaf offering is collected from five small producers in Colombia's Cauca region. Decafs produced through this method can be easily mistaken for regular, caffeinated coffees.
El Salvador La Cubana is sourced from a family-owned farm in the department of Ahuachapan in western El Salvador. Located in the Apaneca mountain range, the La Cubana farm is owned and operated by the Dada Pena family. Coffees from this region are well balanced due to the rich soil and microclimate created by the volcanic mountains.
The Dada Pena family is firmly committed to improving education in El Salvador. Years after donating land to the ministry of education, a primary school has been built where there are now nearly 100 enrolled students. La Cubana continues to fund events which promote sports and culture in the region.
While many roasters have transitioned to lighter espresso offerings, Yellowstone Coffee has stayed true to our roots, and we continue to roast and blend the classic espresso our customers have come to love during the last 20 years.
The bold, rich flavors from our dark espresso can stand up to the dairy and sugar that compliment many espresso drinks and always finishes with the perfect layer of golden crema. Our espresso combines subtle earthy flavors from East Africa with lively notes from South America to create an espresso that is bright, robust, and well-balanced.
The ASPROCDEGUA cooperative in west-central Guatemala is comprised of 664 active members, most of whom are certified Fair Trade Organic producers. Members of the cooperative have an average of two hectares of land where they grow coffee and other crops like citrus, bananas, and avocado to improve crop diversification.
Families associated with the cooperative are offered technical assistance and services such as soil analysis, farm testing, and other programs that offer its members better access to healthy food and improved education.
This certified Fair Trade Organic (FTO) coffee is sourced from family farms in Mexico's southern state of Chiapas. Located in the Sierra Madre mountain range, the El Triunfo cooperative is comprised of more than 400 local producers.
The small, family owned farms are situated near the El Triunfo biosphere reserve which provides habitat for nearly 400 species of birds and over 800 plants.
