From the Founders:
We founded Alma on the same 3 key pillars in which our farms were based on: improving lives, sustainability practices, and extraordinary coffee. Improving Lives is something that the Alma team practices every day in every community we touch. At our farm, we employ and provide suitable living conditions for over 250 coffee pickers during harvest season. At our roastery, each team member is a member of our family, and we hope to be their lifelong career path or a crucial stepping stone to achieving their career goals. We are constantly in search of more Sustainable Practices, which is why we chose the state-of-the-art Loring Smart Roaster, the first in the state of Georgia! Not only is it USA made out of Santa Rosa, California, but it is the most fuel-efficient roaster on the market, producing 80% less emissions as opposed to other conventional roasters. Extraordinary Coffee is the fruit of our labor. With so many options in the specialty coffee industry, we distinguish ourselves by being able to control the quality of our coffee from the time it is planted at our farms until the moment you drink your perfect cup. When you make the choice to drink Alma Coffee, you make the choice to directly support coffee farmers and make a positive impact on the industry we all love.
From the brand:
We’re on a mission to expand minds, broaden palates, and build relationships through coffee.
We set out to build a company to foster connections. To bring you closer to where our food comes from and those who grow it. To create spaces where you could have great conversations. To expand your palate with flavor profiles you can’t wait to share with your friends. All while staying in touch with our roots and values that raised us.
We know our actions and decisions impact others and the world. We enjoy the moment we’re in. We’re diligent, but we don’t rush. (Good things take time.)
We deeply respect our customers, partners, and vendors. We take the time to serve, connect, and build relationships. We’re kind, optimistic, and usually having fun. (Vinyl. Whiskey. Ping Pong. That kind of thing.)
Martha's Outpost works with Southeast roasters who are experts in their craft. We work with roasters that we have a relationship with, know and and are proud to serve. There are so many amazing roasters in the Southeast and we enjoy telling their story by highlighting their delicious assortment!
