What makes Kind different from other coffees/ brands?
We are committed to roasting and serving really great coffee, which allows us to support our community, the environment, and the planet.
How does Kind roast its coffee?
We use a Sivetz gas-fired roaster. The Sivetz air roaster allows a constant flow of clean air through the beans as they roast, leaving a much "cleaner," coffee flavor. Drum roasters, more commonly used, build up more smoke inside the roasting chamber, and give you a different profile altogether.
Why are my beans sometimes shiny (oily) and sometimes dry-looking?
This is a result of the roast of the coffee. The darker the roast, the oilier the bean.
What does Fair Trade Mean?
Fair trade for Coffee mean that everyone involved in the process of growing and harvesting the beans is treated fairly, and the farmers are guaranteed a minimum price for their coffee. Still curious and want to know more? Visit Fair Trade USA.

Why Swiss Water processed?
Swiss Water is the only decaffeination process achieved without the use of chemicals. In fact, the only substance to touch our beloved beans is pure water. Beans are soaked in it, allowing their caffeine to be pulled out and filtered away, leaving tasty beans ready to roast. Sipping a cup of our Swiss Water decaf is the perfect way to invigorate your senses without jumpstarting your heart!
