Our Coffee

PennyCup Coffee sources the finest, sustainable, green coffee and roast it to our exacting standards in a constant effort to create an amazing cup of coffee.

Roasting

Accounts have access to a list of coffee offerings, with roasts ranging from modern light roasts to classic Italian rustico.

We have developed custom roasts and blends for a number of accounts — including Biscuit Head, BattleCat Coffee Bar, Battery Park Book Exchange, Vivian, and Burial Brewing Co. Let us help guide you on your custom coffee needs.

Sourcing

As the industry trends towards more experimental processes and techniques, we are constantly looking for exciting coffees to offer our customers. PennyCup Coffee Co. is proud to partner with Unblended Coffee for direct trade offerings of some of the finest coffees from Antioquia, Colombia. We can even source custom lots for your latest project — perfect for new cafes and breweries looking for coffees of exceptional quality for coffee beers.

We import the majority of our coffee through Cafe Imports, a green coffee importer with offices in the U.S., Germany, and Australia.

All of our coffee offerings meet Fair Trade Organic standards.
