The Importance of Buying Local Coffee: Locally Roasted, Microbrewed

There are many reasons to buy local coffee. When you buy coffee from a local roaster, you are supporting a small business. Buying local helps keep money in your community, and it's better for the environment. Local roasters often use sustainable farming practices, and they roast their coffee fresh daily. Coffee from a local roaster is also likely to be higher quality than coffee from a large chain.

East Coast Roasts Coffee roasts each batch to order based on very specific roasting methods and a good machine.  Even though we ship worldwide, our medium roast coffee is roasted within days of shipping for peak quality.

Buying from a local roaster is important to us, and we want it to be important to you too! Here are three reasons why buying local coffee is important:

  1. When you buy locally roasted coffee, you are supporting a small business. Buying local helps keep money in your community and strengthens the local economy.
  2. They may also be more likely to use fair trade coffee beans. This means the farmers who grew the coffee beans were paid a fair price for their work.
  3. Local roasters typically roast their coffee in small batches, so the coffee is less likely to be burned or otherwise ruined.

The coffee is also more likely to be organic and roasted using sustainable practices.

So next time you need to stock up on coffee, remember to support your local roaster! Not only will you get a great product, but you'll also be helping your community. Try a bag (or a batch) of our premium roasted coffee today and check out the benefits of small batch roasting!
