Pachamama Milestone: Now Roasting!

on

This weekend we are celebrating a huge milestone for Pachamama as we have just acquired our first coffee roaster so we can start roasting coffee in-house at our headquarters in Sacramento! This is a celebration of our successful Kickstarter campaign where YOU helped make this dream a reality.

Since 2001, we’ve been working on tightening the gap between the farmers and the consumers.  By owning 100% of the Pachamama brand, farmers are receiving 100% of the profit, and able to reinvest it back into their farms and community to produce better coffee for you and better lifestyles for them, year after year.

Acquiring a roaster will further realize the mission of Pachamama.  By roasting in-house, we’ll be saving our farmers’ money, increasing our quality control, and gaining more capacity to continue the strong growth of Pachamama.

in honor of our late co-founder Raul del Aguila, we are naming our new roaster “El Compadre.” Raul often called his friends by “El compadre,” or comrade.

Here is a message from Raul himself, explaining the history and importance of Pachamama to the coffee industry.

As a thank you for your support, we want to invite you to come celebrate with us! We’ll have a full day schedule of education, food, fun, and celebration.
