A new initiative in the Assam region

We are proud to support the emerging Karbi-Anglong Small Farmers tea project in Assam, India. Assam became the epicenter of the colonial tea plantation system in the 1800s when the British lost their trade monopoly with China. Vast plantations were established under British rule and workers were coerced from the most vulnerable populations in central India through indentured contracts to labor on the plantations. Today, Assam's tea plantations are still fraught with labor injustices and many plantation laborers live and work in terrible conditions. The Karbi-Anglong Small Farmers tea project represents the beginning of a small farmer tea model in Assam. Together, we’re building an alternative tea model and a farmer-led future for the tea industry.

What do our roast names mean?

At our solar-powered roastery in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts, our worker-owner team batch roasts and conducts production cuppings daily to bring out the best characteristics in each harvest. With four primary roast levels, we think there’s a favorite here for everyone.

Medium Roast: expect the unique citrus, nutty, fruity, or floral notes of each coffee to shine through.

Full City Roast: you’ll get a bit more of the caramel flavor that comes from the roasting process.

Vienna Roast: starts to bring the smoky aroma and smooth and rich body of a darker roast.

French Roast: with the natural oils fully expressed, it’s an intensely dark and smoky experience akin to dark chocolate.
