About

The Sailors Coffee Company Folklore

Where the salty breeze mingles with the tantalizing aroma of freshly brewed coffee, the Sailors Coffee Company emerged as a beacon for caffeine connoisseurs and sea enthusiasts alike. As any seafaring tall-tale, the countless voyages across the vast oceans, the adventures of lifelong friends Skipper Marco Vento and First Mate Amelia Gaoth has borne this maritime-themed specialty-grade coffee company. The duo, both seasoned sailors with a deep passion for the sea and an unwavering love for a good cup of coffee, envisioned the warmth of a well-crafted brew could harmonize with the camaraderie of seafaring tales.

Our meticulously curated specialty-grade coffee and artisan tea selection features flavors sourced from regions around the world, reflecting the diverse flavors encountered during their seafaring journeys. Whether you are a landlubber seeking refuge from the daily grind or a sailor yearning for a taste of the sea, Sailors Coffee Company stands as a testament to the enduring friendship of its founders and their shared love for the open waters and a perfect cup of coffee.

 

The Sailors Coffee Company difference

Sailors Coffee Company is a direct-to-consumer specialty-grade coffee brand where customers can easily order their favorite coffee varietals online, which are then freshly roasted and promptly shipped to their doorstep, allowing them to indulge in a delightful coffee experience from the comfort of their own homes or while out on the open seas. With our mantra of "Order, Roast, Ship... Sip," we prioritize convenience and quality, offering specialty-grade coffee and artisan loose leaf teas without the need for a brick and mortar location at this time.

At Sailors Coffee Company, we are deeply committed to supporting sustainable farming. Our roaster sources coffee beans from farmers who use environmentally friendly practices, ensuring the longevity of their land and the health of the ecosystems their farms are part of. 

At Sailors Coffee Company, sustainability is at the heart of what we do. That's why we're proud to offer several of our coffee roasts in compostable bags, along with our full range of artisan loose leaf teas. Our commitment to eco-friendly packaging ensures that you can enjoy your favorite brews guilt-free, knowing that you're making a positive impact on the environment. Join us in our mission to sail towards a greener future, one compostable bag at a time.

When we say our coffee is 'ethically sourced', it means we ensure that our coffee is produced under fair working conditions and farmers are paid a fair wage. This not only helps to support the communities where we source our coffee from but also contributes to the quality of our coffee.
