We roast coffee to benefit the desert and all of its inhabitants. We are grateful for public lands – especially in our Utah home – and we work to protect and preserve these places through coffee. Our mission is to appreciate what we have and share what we love.
As a Benefit LLC, we make decisions by considering impacts to people and planet, not just profit. Our focus on society and environment extends to every aspect of our business, from purchasing intentionally sourced coffees, to delivering coffee by bicycle, to implementing a zero waste coffee bag recycling program.
At La Barba Coffee it’s our aim to roast incredibly great tasting, specialty-grade coffee for Salt Lake City and beyond. We’ve set our standards incredibly high for coffee, and as equally high for our relationships with everyone involved.
All our beans are single origin, sourced from specific farms and regions, and roasted in small batches. We like things simple, functional and honest – which informs our roasting style and attitude behind coffee. Behind each bag of handcrafted coffee is a hardworking group of folks (some with beards), who have lovingly roasted those beans to perfection. No pretension. Locally focused. Ethically sourced. Hopefully charming.
Park City Coffee Roaster is a small-batch roaster, roasting 20 to 25 pounds at a time. We roast our great beans to the handcrafted traditions set forth by the Roasters Guild of America. This allows for the coffee to be given the special attention it deserves after so much work has been put into the growing, harvesting, and selection process. Our roasting technique enhances each batch’s own characteristics. This technique allows the beans to be evenly roasted and gives our company the ability to offer the freshest coffee in town. We feel our customers deserve deliciously aromatic cups of coffee that small-batch roasting can accomplish.
Our coffees come from the finest farms in the world. We seek out premium farmers and listen to their firsthand accounts and experiences. Their stories motivate us to purchase our green coffees from USDA organic and Fair Trade certified farms.
Park City Coffee Roaster has a responsible role in a larger platform through Transfair USA; this organization empowers farmers and workers to lift themselves out of poverty by investing in their farms and communities, protecting the environment and developing their abilities in the global workplace. We will be a leader in cultural awareness and knowing how our purchasing affects the entire chain of coffee production.
