About Larry’s Coffee

Larry’s Coffee is happily committed to blending and roasting innovative uniquely delicious coffees — and making the world a better place. 100% of their coffee is Fair Trade, Shade Grown, and Organic, all slow-roasted to bring out every note of indigenous flavor.

The company's green-o-vated facilities use passive solar construction, active solar systems, radiant floors, zoned heating, composting, and rainwater harvesting to minimize their impact on the planet. They offer 15 Creative Blends and 15 Single-Origin Blends, along with limited-roast favorites like Rockin’ Holiday Blend and Woodstock Blend.

The whole idea of corporations that exist solely to make money is crazy. We imagine a world where every business considers itself responsible for treating trading partners fairly, for doing right by nature, for contributing positively to the community. We achieved our B Corporation in 2010 and are proud to be a member of the B corp family.

The Change We Seek®

We spread the word about sustainable products and sustainable business practices because the more you know, the better decisions you make.

What makes us a better company?
