I’d like to think of myself as a coffee enthusiast. I’ll vouch that years ago I knew next to nothing when it came to coffee. Today I can proudly say that I know many things such as the difference in roast levels, the grind, freshness, and much more. In all honesty, next to water coffee is my drink of choice whether served hot or cold.
Moving from Georgia to Oregon about six years ago, my appreciation for coffee has tremendously changed as I’ve been introduced to many local roasts that have been rich and savory in flavor and freshness. And speaking of delicious coffees, I’d like to introduce you to a roaster from California that gave me an opportunity to try out some of their wonderful coffees and to get birds eye view so to speak into what they do and are aiming for in their coffee company business.
About Ponderosa Coffee Company…
This coffee company was started by a husband and wife team that originally started out as “Renegade Roasters”, designing one of a kind coffee roasters that in turn makes exceptionally delicious specialty coffees. What makes their roasters so different is that they are digital in turn that there’s a touch screen controller that allows roasters to tweak their roast to desired taste!
The Ponderosa Coffee Company supports farmers in buying beans in knowing that farmers get their fare share of the profit. Per example their Organic Coffee Peru’s supplier “Sustainable Harvest” is in contact personally with Ponderosa in letting them know that the coffee bean farms get back 91% of the money they earn for the coffees.
I love that Ponderosa gives back to the community by offering special coffees with a purpose supporting causes such as Team in Training (Leukemia & Lymphoma blood cancers organization), Pretty in Pink (A Foundation that provides the financial assistance necessary to fight breast cancer), and the Denver Down-syndrome foundations.
The Ponderosa Roasting Coffee Company offers numerous flavors and types of coffee. I personally was given the opportunity to try out a few of their organic roasts such as: Peru, Vanilla, The Box Office Blend, and Carmel, to name just a few. I found all of the coffees to be distinct in flavor and freshness. The richness and full flavor of the beans in each of the coffees really stood out to me and that’s saying a lot considering how many different coffees I’ve sampled over the years.
If you are interested in purchasing any of their coffee, you’ll be pleased to see quite the selection of flavors. You can choose how you’d like your coffee ground, roast preference, and caffeine preference. They also cater parties and can make special roasts for a fund-raisers, and more! Some of the recent events they’ve catered include the MTV Movie Awards, An Oscar Event, and the Kids Choice Awards.
Overall, I’m very impressed with the Ponderosa Roasting Coffee Company. I love that they are giving back with their coffees for a purpose, supporting farmers fairly, and have created coffees that taste as good as their descriptions sound. Also, I think their pricing is very affordable! In fact, right now, they are offering free shipping on all orders $50 and above!
