Nice Coffee, Nice People
It all started while Alex Fink was enjoying coffee at a small beachfront cafe in Mexico in 2010. The smooth, bright flavor led to cup after cup, without any stomach upset. He headed home with suitcases full of coffee beans, and soon after, Simpatico Coffee was born.
We're excited to bring you this full-bodied, smooth coffee that’s not only great tasting, but also naturally low acid. We hope that, like us, your first cup leads to a second.
All of our beans are imported from the mountainous rural states of southern Mexico, long known for producing some of the world’s best tasting coffee. All of our 100% arabica coffee beans are wild shade grown under a natural forest canopy and then traditionally harvested and processed. The majority of our roasts are now Organic Certified. The beans are mechanically sorted to assure that only first class beans remain, providing a pure taste devoid of defects.
Our Mexican coffee growers harvest the coffee beans from wild-growing bushes located high in the mountains. Our growers have all pledged to be pesticide and herbicide and synthetic fertilizer free. Since the bushes are growing wild, they don’t need them. The natural ecosystem keeps pests and weeds in balance. These ecosystems are good for biodiversity including birds and beneficial insects. Most of our low acid roasts are now certified organic, and we hope to complete the certification process for all our coffees by fall 2020.
Simpatico Coffee aims to restore ethics to an industry that has become nontransparent. We eliminate all the middlemen, buying direct from our growers. They earn more, you pay less.
All of our roasting and packaging is done at our headquarters in Holland, Michigan. The coffee beans are roasted in the low emissions Revelation roaster, one of the most efficient in the world. We roast our beans to order in small batches. This means that they are the freshest possible when we ship them to you. Our roasted coffee never sits for months in a distribution warehouse.
