About this coffee

Did you know that every cup of brewed coffee is 98% water? Hydraulic fracturing (also known as "fracking") is a controversial drilling method that poses a threat to water supply right in our backyard. During fracking, natural gas companies inject a mixture of water, sand, and chemicals under high pressure into dense rock formations, shale, tight sandstone, or coal beds; to crack the rock and release natural gas.

According to Food & Water Watch, "The rapid expansion of this new form of fracking has brought rampant environmental and economic problems to rural communities. Accidents and leaks have polluted rivers, streams, and drinking supplies." We need clean water to have great coffee, thriving farms, and healthy people. That's why a portion of proceeds from every bag of Fracktivist Blend supports the anti-fracking movement in the region.

To date, over $20,000 has been raised.

About Gimme! Blends

Each of our blends starts with an idea. Sometimes we're inspired by a craft beer or fine wine; sometimes we want to showcase an outstanding bean or create our own version of a traditional blend. Our roaster takes this idea into the cupping room, where we spread out a palette of single-origin beans. The blend comes together like a puzzle, piece by piece. First comes the anchoring base note; next we choose the high note and finish. Finally we tune the proportions to bring the whole mix into balance, so that no one flavor dominates.
