JOE VAN GOGH

COFFEE ROASTERS

Joe Van Gogh (JVG) began as a single coffeehouse in 1991, roasting coffee by the front door to serve our customers. Creating an immersive coffee culture and building a sense of community is how they started our journey in coffee, and what continues to drive JVG today.

They ensure high-quality green coffee from trusted partners and producers.  When JVG finds a great coffee, they search for its source. And when they find the source, they cultivate a friend and partner.

Their mission is to foster a community with great coffee – a community of farmers, millers, roasters, baristas, and coffee drinkers.

At JVG, they develop lasting relationships with trusted partners, ensuring high quality green coffee. The pay special attention to each season’s crop and fine tune their roasts to highlight each individual coffees’ unique characteristics. They roast to order on the world’s most innovative, sustainable, and fuel efficient Loring SmartRoasters. JVG packages their coffee by hand and stand behind the freshness of everything they do.

JVG looks to partner with companies who place the same emphasis on the coffee industry a they do, and who’s values and commitments align with their own.

In short, JVG takes pride in the art and craft of everything they do from seed to service.
