Yaggy Road Roasting Co was born in a dorm room in 2016. In the beginning, we never made a plan or intended to create a business, it was just three guys in a dorm room who loved sharing a cup of coffee with whoever was around. We like to say that Yaggy Road was built by the community that was around us. We were surrounded by great people who loved great coffee and the more interest we received, the more we got into roasting coffee. As we began to learn more and more about coffee, we became aware of some of the serious problems it causes for the communities that grow it—both humanitarian and environmental. We love coffee, but we hate the ways that it has been destructive to many of the coffee growing regions of the world. Through this frustration with coffee’s harmful impacts, the Yaggy Mission was born.
The Yaggy Mission is first a promise and a commitment to only buy coffee from ethical and environmentally sustainable sources. We know our coffee producers personally and they do amazing work creating quality coffee and treating their farmers exceptionally well. We are quite proud to partner with coffee producers who provide the highest quality beans, while also providing fair wages, health-care, education, and property to their farmers. We believe that it is not right that our coffee business thrive while the farmers who work away creating delicious green coffee are left struggling. That is why we have also committed to donating a portion of our profits back to the communities that grow our coffee, so that when we succeed, our coffee farmers do too. With the support of our customers, we have been able to financially contribute to the rebuilding of a wall around one of our farmer’s homes in Costa Rica where before there was only a tarp protecting him and his family from harsh wind and rain. Currently, we are contributing to an ongoing project to build a childcare and education center for the children of coffee pickers in Costa Rica. With the support of our customers and our community, we will continue to give back to these communities, and that’s the Yaggy Mission.
WE LOVE OUR CAUSE AND OUR CUSTOMERS AND WE WANT YOU TO BE PART OF THE YAGGY MISSION
