Coffee Roasters During COVID-19
From our blog OSC Knows, we hope that here you'll find places to go and find answers, ideas, direction, maybe even inspiration... For the duration.
We connect roasters with a vast selection of the best green coffees available, from long established specialty origins like Kenya and Guatemala, to emerging specialty regions, like Laos, Yemen and Burundi. Driven by years of experience building relationships with farmers, estates and cooperatives, our reach is unmatched, allowing us to offer unique micro-lots, high quality at high volumes, and everything in between.
Our team has a wealth of experience in all aspects of the coffee industry. We understand both the business and the craft of roasting. Several of our coffee cupping professionals have been certified as Q-graders by the Coffee Quality Institute, enabling us to accurately identify and respond to the requirements of our customers with the right coffees at the right time.
From the growing altitude and rainfall, to the soil and sunshine, to the hands which carefully collected each cherry, to the processes passed down through generations - We offer our customers coffee from over 30 origins, all with their own unique story.
