Roger’s Environmentally Friendly Coffee Beans

I love a good cup of coffee and I have a few favorite brands. Imagine my joy and surprise to discover they are all made by the Roger’s Family Company. Rogers Estate Coffees from the UK just came to my attention and I discovered that they are an environmentally-friendly company with a positive carbon footprint! I was thinking, “Wow, I fonder if I can get coffee from them here in the states?”, and was thrilled to discover that I not only could, I already do! Both San Francisco Bay Coffee Company and The Organic Coffee(& Tea) Company are brands I love and trust — and they are produced by Roger’s.

Roger’s fine, gourmet coffees are now being fresh ground in the UK to assure their European consumers get coffee as delicious and fresh as their American consumers always have. When you think coffee beans uk think Roger’s. Their San Francisco Bay Coffee has long been a favorite of mine. Their Belgian Chocolate Flavored coffee is extremely yummy. I like it will just a touch of real cream. It tastes totally decadent.

The Rogers family began growing, harvesting and roasting coffees for over 25 years ago. They pride themselves not just on the quality of their coffee, but their commitment to ecologically friendly farming as well. In their own wods: Great coffee starts with great care for the land. It ends with roasting excellence. In between, when you put people before profit, you’ll have long-term relationships with the best coffee farmers in the world.

The Roger’s family also maintains several community aid projects — about 15 at last count — designed to help coffee farming communities become more self-sufficient, safe, healthy places to live, grow and prosper. They have improved community water sources, provided modern bathroom and sanitation facilities, provided medical clinics, purchased farm animals for food and brought in medical experts, nutritional experts and worked to upgrade the quality of life not only for their own workers, but in the surrounding community as well.

If you have every enjoyed any of these brands, San Francisco Bay Coffee Company, The Organic Coffee(& Tea) Company, Audubon Coffee, Fairwinds Coffee Company, Black Mountain Gold Coffee, Cafe Jerusalem – Kosher Coffee, East India Tea Company, then I know that you are a fan of Roger’s coffees, too.

Mmmmm Fresh Coffee Beans

Robin asked me to share my coffee tree photos. I am afraid this will be a disappointment.  I didn’t photograph the whole tree, only the beans.

Coffee Beans

Our neighbor lady hails from Kona, Hawaii, which is on Hawaii Island (otherwise known as The Big Island, to keep from confusing mainland folks). One of the things Kona is known for is its coffee beans.   When she moved here (to Oahu island) many years ago our neighbor brought coffee seeds with her and planted a Kona Coffee tree in her front yard.  The other day she and our neighbor across the street were out harvesting the ripe red berries, so I went to see.  (Can you say, “nosy neighbor”?)

Now, technically, since the coffee tree is on Oahu, it can’t be called Kona coffee.  And, since the weather conditions here are very different from the weather conditions in Kona, chances are good the roasted and ground coffee beans don’t taste exactly the same.  However, if you’ve priced coffee lately and you like drinking the stuff, I’m sure you wouldn’t mind having a coffee tree in your yard.

Hawaii is the largest island.
Oahu is the most populated island.
