Ready to roast on the Bellwether Roaster with the touch of a button. No experience required

A roaster is only as good as the coffee that goes into it. We didn’t design the most consistent, controllable coffee roaster on the market to leave your most important ingredient up to chance.

As part of the Bellwether system, we source the highest quality, most equitable coffee you can purchase, tailored to the exact strengths and specifications of the Bellwether roaster, and curated exclusively for Bellwether customers.

Every coffee sold in-store comes with a pack of custom roast profiles developed by our team of experts and made available in multiple roast levels (light, medium, dark and espresso) so you can roast confidently, right out of the box, even if you’ve never roasted before.

Read on to see how our green coffee products work in concert with the Bellwether Roaster to deliver superior, sustainable coffee with the greatest impact possible, at the best value to your business.

“I don’t really have to worry about sourcing, which would  have been the big issue for me because I’d have to talk to alot of different brokers, get the pricing, make sure they’re here on time, but Bellwether solved it all.”

– Tae Kim, Kona Coffee

“We really want family farmers, not the big corporate conglomerate. Just knowing that the little family that grew the beans survived is really important. Buying the product improves their lives.”

– Mike Vucurevitch, Founding Farmers

The best coffee for your business

The Coffee

Bellwether’s Green Coffee Marketplace features a curated list of expertly-sourced specialty coffees from around the globe that meet your needs for taste, quality, budget and social impact.

How we source

1

We taste hundreds of coffees a year to bring you the very best, season after season.

2

Coffees that meet our standards for taste and quality are then evaluated using a scorecard for alignment with our purchasing values including sustainability, farmer pay standards, gender equity, ethical labor standards, and more.

3

Only coffees that meet our rigorous buying standards make the cut and go on to find a home on our menu.

4

We build ongoing relationships with producers to continue supporting them year over year. These relationships produce higher quality coffee, provide better outcomes for farmers, and benefit Bellwether customers alike.

Our Values

Sustainability in every cup

We’re the only roaster in the world that helps you save carbon instead of spending it. With the Bellwether roaster and green coffee Marketplace, you can watch how every pound roasted saves greenhouse gas emissions over coffee roasted on a conventional roaster, giving you an instant impact you can measure.

Investing in farmers for a better future

Our groundbreaking Verified Living Income Initiative offers a new way to buy coffee that uses data to prove farmers are making a living income from every purchase. Learn more

Tip The Farmer

Take your impact further by enrolling in our Tip the Farmer program which allows you and your customers to invest in projects at individual farms and cooperatives, putting money directly back into the hands of coffee growers where it’s needed most. In 2020 Bellwether customers contributed $3,000 for farmers in Colombia to secure necessary medical supplies to prevent the spread of Covid in their community.
