Roasters United is a collaborative sourcing project founded by Bird Rock Coffee Roasters, Portola Coffee, and Klatch Coffee.  The project is now in its fourth year.

For the last couple years, we have worked with Clear Path coffee to help us coordinate samples in Colombia.  When the samples are ready, we fly to Colombia and over the course of a week and cup 100s of coffee. The goal is to find coffees that will work in a blend and hunt for the top three coffees for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.  In addition to a premium we pay for the top lots, the winning farms get a 1.5 million pesos in farm grants. The hope is that the growers use this grant to improve their farm’s infra-structure which will lead to even better coffee.
