Smallholder-coffee free of chemical pesticides and fertilizers. Sustainable communities is our goal, coffee is the method.
Geoffrey Martinez Roaster/Owner
Los Angeles native, born to emigrant parents from Guatemala. Spent my early childhood there, in the rural coastal region of Escuintla. There I discovered coffee in its fruit form, while playing at my best friend's backyard. Living there exposed to campesinos and their famililes , who looking back were exploited by multinational corporations exporting sugar, coconuts, bananas, etc.
I was first introduced to coffee roasting by my neighbor Chris in Compton. I was intrigued by how different factors influence cup results. This new found passion became a side hustle when I decided to leave my job to care for my newly born son.
Now find myself in pursuit of coffee roasting mastery; mindful of the people who make coffee possible. On the back end aiming for a minimal environmental foot print along with being active with community building initiatives in Compton.
