About Me

Hi, I'm Charlie, the founder of EarthRoast Coffee. As a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community, my passion for coffee, commitment to sustainability, urgency about climate change, and dedication to providing ethical workspaces inspired me to start this journey.

I've always loved coffee, but when I learned about the negative effects of mass coffee production—such as deforestation, low wages for farmers, and habitat loss—I decided I needed to make a difference. Thus, EarthRoast Coffee was born. Starting this company hasn't been easy, but overcoming these challenges has been incredibly rewarding.

We believe in ethically sourcing the finest organic coffee and giving back to the planet. For every bag sold, we plant a tree, ensuring our love for coffee makes a positive impact on the environment. Additionally, we partner with LGBTQ+ organizations to support and uplift our community. Thank you for joining me on this mission to enjoy great coffee and make a difference.

Brewing a Better World: Our Journey Towards Sustainable and Ethical Coffee

Welcome to EarthRoast Coffee's heart – where our passion for exceptional coffee meets our commitment to the planet. We're more than just coffee enthusiasts; we're a community dedicated to making a tangible difference, one cup at a time. Here's how we're turning our vision into reality.

A Greener Bean: Our Sustainable Approach

At EarthRoast Coffee, we're acutely aware of the environmental toll of coffee production, from the lush fields where our beans begin their journey to the cozy mugs from which you enjoy our brews. Our mission? To deliver unparalleled coffee experiences without compromising the health of our planet.

The journey of coffee is marked by its carbon footprint, with the Arbor Day Foundation highlighting that a pound of roasted coffee can produce 11 pounds of carbon. With the global production reaching staggering heights, the need for sustainable practices has never been more urgent.

Rooted in Responsibility: Our Pledge to the Planet

In our quest for sustainability, we've evolved our business model to deepen our impact. Instead of per-bag contributions, we now donate a portion of our quarterly profits to reputable organizations dedicated to environmental and social causes. This strategic shift allows us to extend our reach and support broader initiatives that align with our values.

Our partnership with Sprout and GoodAPI remains stronger than ever, with each box or bag of EarthRoast Coffee sold translating into a new tree planted. These reforestation efforts are critical in our fight against climate change and in preserving the biodiversity that our planet desperately needs to thrive.

Beyond the Bean: Ethical Sourcing and Quality

Our commitment extends to the very roots of coffee cultivation. We champion ethical and sustainable farming practices, eschewing harmful pesticides and herbicides in favor of organic methods that safeguard our earth and enhance the quality of our coffee. By partnering with farmers who embody our ethos, we ensure that every sip supports not just the environment but also the vibrant communities behind our beans.

At EarthRoast Coffee, we believe in the power of a good cup of coffee to inspire change. Our carefully roasted, sustainably-sourced beans are more than just a beverage; they're an invitation to join us in making a difference. With every cup of EarthRoast Coffee you savor, you're not just enjoying a delicious brew—you're contributing to a movement that values our planet and its people.

Embrace the EarthRoast difference today, and let's brew a better world together.
