Our Mission

At Alta we roast organically grown beans, which are sustainably produced and harvested. We support organic coffee growers for the health and prosperity of those who work the land to bring our customers the very best, for the Earth and the people. We believe that coffee drinkers deserve clean, quality beans from growers who benefit from ideal working conditions and sustainable farming practices. 

We are providing coffee to our community and beyond. We started organic and continue our mission because it is our core belief that organic farming is best for our planet and all of its inhabitants.

We are proud to be a member of the Monterey Bay Area Green Business Program.

Organic 

Alta Organic Coffee Warehouse & Roasting Company is dedicated to supporting the farmers, the processors, the importers/exporters and all those who bring us the beans that make the best cup of coffee around. We adhere to the philosophy that coffee not only has to taste great, it has to be okay for the planet.

Air-Roasted

With our Sivetz Roaster, we take notes on what works and what doesn’t. We roast, and then cup every variety of bean in order to insure our customers are getting the right roast for each region’s subtle needs. We create blends that round out the flavors and depth of many regions.

Coffee of the people

Alta Coffee is the “Coffee of the People.” Every organic coffee bean you get from us is guaranteed to be roasted with care and attention, and ready to brew into the kind of flavor that coffee was meant to have; rich, strong, robust, and delicious!
