2011 Micro Roaster of the Year

Roast magazine’s Roaster of the Year competition recognizes the top roasters in the country. The competition begins with a written questionnaire covering topics range from company mission statement, sustainable/employee practices to commitment to the industry. From the written applications three finalists are chosen from two categories, roasting less than 100,000 lbs. per year and roasting more than 100,000 lbs. year. 

The Good Trade

"At Conscious Coffees, they are also committed to educating consumers about the social, environmental, and economic impacts of growing, harvesting, processing, roasting, and trading coffee. From detailed coffee descriptions and brewing tips on their site to public coffee cuppings at retail locations, they never stop fulfilling their obligation to complete the circle from farmer to consumer, giving credit where credit is due.”

The Daily Camera

“Conscious Coffees pays its growers $2 to $4 a pound. That’s above the current fair trade organic price of $1.61 and considerably more than the commodity price. Customers can follow their coffee back to its origins on”


“It commends Conscious Coffees’ focus on community, citing the Glenns’ commitment to sourcing at the origin - buying directly from farmers - and building model sustainable business practices that include delivering their goods by bike and packaging their beans in reusable steel cans....Plus, the roaster works only with retailers that share its commitment to good practices.”

Coffee Habitat

“Conscious Coffees is one of the 23 members of Cooperative Coffees, a green coffee importing cooperative. Thus, you can find detailed information on the origins of their coffees both on the Conscious Coffee web site, and on the Cooperative Coffees site — which also has a great transparency site called Fair Trade Proof where you can look up any lot of coffee and see all the paperwork and documentation from the farm to the roaster.”
