Our business philosophy rests in the belief that everyone deserves to enjoy delicious coffee. Our growth depends on the strong relationships with our Homestead Coffee community, relationships that we value to no end. That is the number one reason why we never compromise on our ideals or standards of quality.
By investing in our partners and using environmentally friendly packaging, we create better relationships with the earth and each other.
Michael spent the first years of the company’s life building and strengthening his knowledge of coffee.

He now sources our green coffee and is in charge of wholesale business relations. He strives to bring together the best the coffee world has to offer.
Katie is a New Jersey native who loves to travel. She spent four years nestled in the Cascade Mountains of the Pacific Northwest absorbing the culture of wilderness solitude and third wave coffee. She loves yoga and poetry and views roasting coffee as an expression of both. She is passionate about the process of transforming green beans into their most delicious and aromatic potential, as well as the offering of comfort and repose that trickles down into each steaming cup.
