STORYarticle-shape

Alexander Vargas is a producer in San Sebastian de La Plata, Colombia. This is our first time purchasing his coffee, but it is already becoming one of our very favorites.

This season, Alexander was awarded 7th place in the prestigious Colombia Cup of Excellence. This micro lot is a Pink Bourbon, which he processed with no oxygen via the washed anaerobic method. He also practices a very unique drying method that is risky but really pays off; coffee is dried in shade for 14 days and then moved to the sun for another 14 days. The results work: this coffee is floral and citrusy like an Ethiopian coffee, but syrupy like a classic Colombian coffee.

Olympia Coffee Roasting Co. approaches the world of coffee with care and sustainability. They seek the best coffee farmers in the world with whom to work...

Oliver Stormshak states, "This leads us literally to their doorsteps. We collaborate with our producers in the effort to generate beautiful coffees. Our direct relationships yield stunning coffees from exceptional producers."

"Once a coffee is in our roastery, we obsess about perfecting the roast for that coffee. We roast coffee by hand (sight, smell, sound) and cup every roast. Each coffee is roasted daily to highlight the 'taste of place' that is unique to each farm and origin. The next day we do it all again, tweaking the roast if necessary to liberate the most distinctive and captivating flavors of each coffee."

Olympia Coffee Roasting Co strongly believes that once a coffee is roasted, they ship it to you the same day. Their devotion to freshness ensures that you will get delicious coffee every time.

"When you order a drink from one of our baristas, you may wonder why our coffee tastes so incredibly good. The skill and passion they bring to their craft, raising it to the level of an art: that’s part of it. Our intensive barista training program helped for sure. Ultimately, it’s a love of coffee we share here, informing every step in the process."

In 2019, Olympia Coffee became a Certified B Corporation®. This new certification helps Olympia Coffee fulfill their mission to improve quality of life for coffee farmers, staff and customers by verifying our Fair For All sourcing standards, environmental and community impact, and employment practices.
