If you thought our roasted coffee in the US couldn't get any tastier, you'd be wrong! In our continuing quest to offer the best and freshest coffee direct from farmers, we are pleased to announce that De la Gente is now partnering with Deeper Roots Coffee in the US. We believe this change will bring the flavor and complexity of our coffee to new heights. What doesn’t change is that all coffee is roasted to order, and that the coffee is always delivered fresh to your doorstep. Check out our website for more information on roasts now available and flavor notes.

We are excited about our partnership with Deeper Roots Coffee because we believe it will bring us closer to the highest standards of specialty coffee. Deeper Roots has been a friend of De la Gente from the beginning, and their staff have visited Guatemala multiple times and have met the farmers of many of our partner cooperatives.

Deeper Roots strives for excellence in ethical sourcing and crafting of specialty coffees, and their lead roaster Adam Shaw is top notch, having been in the coffee industry for over 7 years. He has a background in engineering, which helps on the scientific side of what happens to coffee structurally when roasted. Adam takes the definition of coffee geek to a whole new level – which is why we love him.

If it's been a while since you've tried our coffee, or if you've never ordered any online, now is a good time to try it. Order some for you, your family, and friends for this holiday season. We'd love to hear your feedback on the roasts - we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
