Three Generations of Coffee Ingenuity
We are Downeast Coffee Roasters
There is an art to a perfectly crafted cup of coffee. But it takes more than art to orchestrate complex flavors from around the world into a sumptuous brew. It takes a meticulous and an unwavering commitment to quality, every step of the way. It starts by partnering with select plantations that can harvest and ship beans to our quality standards. It continues at our roasting facilities, where our beans are put through quality controls when they arrive, while they are roasting, and as they are shipped. Our goal isn’t just quality – it’s consistent quality. Every Cup. Every Time.

Why we're different
Remember the 1950s? Back then, quality and integrity were the backbones of American society. That’s when Downeast Coffee was founded – when quality was the coffee industry’s main export. As a part of Excellent Coffee Company, Downeast was founded on the premise that only the world’s absolute best coffee would do – and nothing less. By roasting hand batches of the finest 100% Arabica beans and meticulously following each step of the process, we ensure an absolute and uncompromising cup of premium coffee. Today, Downeast Coffee continues to innovate with the newest technology, and invest in quality and production. While we have grown into one of America’s most celebrated independent coffee companies, we are never distracted from our goal – giving our consumers the simple joy of the perfect cup of coffee. Nearly seventy years of unyielding passion behind each cup of Downeast Coffee, it’s quality that you can taste. Every Cup. Every Time.
