Tried a few different coffees from Wild foods and I keep coming back to the Grizzly blend. And money is donated when you buy. It's a win win!
Well, not gravy but it make the gravy taste even better.

Love the grizzly coffee! Taste so good every morning and the value is awesome for a coffee that is so good for you!
Why It's Awesome
Wild Coffee beans are the cleanest, most Wild bean we could find out of dozens of coffees we tested. These select Premium Grade "1" beans are single-origin sourced from small farms and crops.
Wild Coffee beans are fresh roasted in small batches 2-4 times a month. The fresh roasted smell is intoxicating.
How To Brew
Drip: 2 tbsp medium grind coffee to 8 ounces of 195-205 degree water.
Pour Over: 28 grams of coarse ground coffee to 310 grams of 200 degree water.
Chemex: 6 tbsp of coarse ground coffee to 700 grams of water.
Small Farmers and Fair Coffee
Practices like fair trade and direct trade ensures the origin of the product as well as fair pay to farmer for their crops.
Farmers that grow Fair Trade coffee receive a fair price, and their local community benefits as well.
Fair Coffee Matters
Some of the Fairtrade Standards cover key areas for environmental protection. These include soil and water quality, reduction of energy and greenhouse gas emissions, pest management, biodiversity protection, prohibition of genetically modified organisms and harmful chemicals and waste management.
So, when you choose Wild Coffee, you're making a healthy difference for the world we live in!
Saving Forests, One Cup At A Time
With typical coffee growing, many forests are cleared to make room for open fields. This means the wild ecosystem of flora and fauna is demolished. Many animals are sadly left without a habitat.
Naturally grown coffee is grown within the shade of lush forests. This provides a beautiful home for wild plants and animals, and keeps unique ecosystems alive and well!
What can you do with leftover coffee grounds? When sprinkled on the ground around plants and in the garden, this helps stop slugs and snails from eating your plants. Yay for natural pest deterrents!
Acid-loving plants like blueberries, azaleas, hydrangeas, and lilies love coffee too! Occasionally sprinkle some brewed grounds around their bases for better growing and more beauty.

Wild Coffee FAQ's
Keep it stored away from light and heat in an air tight container. Don't refrigerate your beans and only freeze your beans if you don't plan on using them soon. Then make sure you triple wrap them.
The darker the roast, the more you will see the shiny coffee oils on the exterior of the beans. This is a sign of freshness as most mass-produced coffee, because it is stale, does not have these yummy coffee oils still on the beans because they have dried out. The more you roast a coffee bean, the more you draw out the coffee oils that are inside the bean. Lighter roasts still have the oils inside the beans, which makes them look "dry," while the darker roasts will shimmer with wonderful shiny coffee oils on their exterior.
We don't... in a lab, that is. Our beans are fresh roasted locally in Austin, Texas by an organic coffee roaster and are sourced fair trade and single-origin. They are also mostly wet processed (Sidamo is dry process on raised beds). In our extensive human tests, mold or toxins have never been an issue with our bean, even when we've tested consuming beans that were stored for 2 months in the cabinet!
Yea... we've struggled with this one. Our roaster has started roasting Peru Light closer to a medium because we have found that it just tastes so much better and brings out so much more of the delicious characteristics of the Peru bean.
We are actually on the hunt to find a really great bean to light roast. Until then, Peru Light is more like "Peru Light Medium."
All Wild Coffee and Wild Cold Brew products are fresh roasted each Monday morning. We pick them up from the roaster Wednesdays (this gives the coffee a day to "rest" as it needs to) and send out packages that afternoon and Thursday!
Yes, but not coffee products. Because freshness is an issue, we don't ship Wild Coffee or Wild Cold Brew outside of the US.
