Our Story

What Makes Our Cold Brew Coffee Different

Lost Coast Roast chooses to source our organic, cold brew coffee from sustainable, shade-grown farms that leave very little impact on the environment. In most cases, these farms actually thrive in conjunction with the surrounding environment. Many types of wildlife can be seen flourishing in and around the farms, including the Quetzal bird, as seen on our logo.

Health conscious people are becoming aware of the importance of a well-balanced pH. Many studies have shown a number of ailments that can be avoided by maintaining a body with a high pH (alkaline). Hot coffee generally has a pH around 4, making it acidic. Our cold brew coffee maintains a pH level of 6, making it more alkaline and less likely to negatively affect our health and well-being.

In our modern industrial environment it is very important to maintain water quality. Our community water sources often have unwanted water additives and contaminants. By using a complex filtering system we are able to bring our water to a pure state, allowing it to fully complement our coffee beans, while not compromising taste.

Lost Coast Roast seeks to serve the highest quality, organic cold brewed coffee through dedication and excellence. The Fabretto Foundation organic farmers, who we source coffee from, utilize shade grown practices that leave little environmental impact where biodiversity flourishes, beautifully wildlife thrives in this natural environment, beautifully wildlife thrives in this natural environment including the Quetzal bird, which is native to the highlands of South and Central America where many coffee farms are located.

Quetzal Bird Story

Quetzal birds are becoming less common due to deforestation and globalization. From Southern Mexico to Northern South America there used to be continuous forests where the Quetzals would fly about. Our farmers organically grow our coffee beans through shade grown farms in Nicaragua. This leaves little impact on the environment and in most cases actually allows the environment to thrive in conjunction with the coffee farm. Beautiful wild life can be seen flourishing around the farm, including the Quetzal bird seen on our logo.
