Mocha Joe's Coffee Roasters

Mocha Joe's Coffee Roasters is an industry leader in social responsibility, environmental stewardship, and artistry in coffee roasting and has been for nearly thirty years. Mocha Joe's has grown from a single cafe in the heart of Brattleboro, Vermont to a vibrant wholesale coffee roasting and green coffee importing business with hundreds of accounts throughout Vermont and New England.  In the coffee industry, Mocha Joe's has been at the forefront of the Direct Trade movement - as much as possible, we try to develop direct relationships with the coffee farms and buy directly from farmers, cutting out the middleman, so more money can go directly to farmers.

One example of this type of relationship is our Cameroon project. Ten years ago, our founder, Pierre, helped establish the speciality organic coffee trade in Cameroon and we now export thousands of pounds of specialty coffee from the country that we roast here in Brattleboro and distribute around the country. We pay our Cameroon coffee farmers and coffee mill employees 3 to 4 times the going rate and we are directly involved with improving the lives of our Cameroon community. Pierre just came home from Cameroon this week from setting up a new mill for the 2020 coffee season. You can read more about the Cameroon project here: https://mochajoes.com/pages/cameroon.

We offer the highest quality single origin coffees from every coffee producing region of the world as well as finely tuned blends and espresso. Our motto is "Do Good, Drink Coffee, Great Coffee" and that's why coffee lover in Vermont and across the country love Mocha Joe's
