MADE IN SAN FRANCISCO • SINCE 1976
4 GENERATIONS OF COFFEE ROASTERS
When our doors first opened in 1976, we had one thing on our minds - incredible coffee. And for 40 years, we've done nothing but that. Alvin, the third of four generations of master coffee roasters had roasting in his blood. A San Francisco icon, Alvin perfected the craft of air roasting coffee. Now, over 40 years later, his legacy continues to inspire young roasters everywhere.
Air-Roasted, Small Batch, Micro Lots
Hand picked and held to the highest standard, our master roasters vigorously cup and score each batch of coffee that leaves our roaster. Only the most remarkable beans are used in our blends and all of our coffees are air-roasted by our master coffee roasters. Air roasting allows a skilled craftsman the ability to highlight characteristics of the bean otherwise lost to drum type roasters. Never bitter, always rounded and smooth, Alvin's coffees set the bar for quality coffee.
Top 1% of Each Tea Harvest
Every tea leaf that we purchase goes through a detailed cupping & scoring evaluation and is re-tested when it arrives in port. Our tea buyers are out on foot from farm to farm, buying the absolute highest grade tea leaves around. We only buy the top 1% of each tea harvest from our vendor farms. This is the only way we can ensure that our products meet the highest standards that Alvin set.
Commitment to the Environment
At Alvin's Coffees & Teas we know that everything we take from our planet is a gift and should be treated as such. We're dedicated to reducing our footprint by enacting good environmental manufacturing processes as well as reducing our coffee roaster emissions with abatement equipment that exceeds federal standards.
OUR FACILITY IS NOW A 100% RENEWABLE, SOLAR & WIND POWERED FACILITY!
