Family-owned since 1993, Mother Lode Coffee Roasting Company has been motivated by simple, wholesome, small-town values. Excellent, high-quality product, delivered quickly and at a fair price. In a climate of media chaos, corporate overwhelm and stiff competition for customers, you will find it refreshing to support the efforts of real people offering real products on a scale that can be tended to with the care and attention of days gone by, where merchants were held accountable for their products and took pride in what they offered. We have been guided by that mission for over 20 years of operation.
We offer a full range of coffee flavors and roasts, to accommodate coffee drinkers of all types. From a lighter “blonde” roast, our Breakfast Blend offers a smooth and mellow, yet full bodied flavor for your morning cup or as an afternoon pick-me-up, to our French Roast which delivers strong, rich, darkness that comes from roasting beautiful beans to a glossy, aromatic finish. We also have many signature blends that represent the middle path — Captain George’s, Gold Run, 49’er, and Cowboy Coffee each have unique qualities of complexity and a full bodied, well rounded taste and smell that will quickly become a favorite. Try a sampler, to find out which blend suits you best!
At MLCRC we are very proud to offer an extensive line of Fair Trade Organic coffees. It is important to us that we can support fairness in the coffee trade business and bring to our customer the very best in the worlds’ beans on a regular basis and at a good price. We work with the oversight of organizations like Fair Trade USA, CCOF, the FDA (US and CA), in order to be in compliance with important considerations and regulations of the industry so that our customers can have confidence in our products and practices.
We consider ourselves the “Gold Standard” of small batch, Mother Lode coffees and have ALWAYS sold a full pound of coffee. From our warehouse nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Mountains, we offer you our best. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you are not finding our coffees in your local stores. “We love talkin’ coffee” and know that it’s YOU who keeps this vision alive, for that we are very grateful.
