About Us

We’re proud that some 20 plus years after we first fired up our coffee roaster we’ve held true to our founding principles and look forward to continuing our journey and sharing our story for years to come. By the way, we originally called ourselves Just Us! because we were just a small group of friends who had very little in the way of business experience or resources, but really believed we could do our bit for social "justice". To us, fair trade is about more than just price; It’s about social justice and improving the lives of workers from farms to the roasters, restaurants and cafés.

Our Values

At Just Us! we stand for justice. We are not just a coffee company, but a social enterprise using coffee as a vehicle for change. We work directly with our producer-partners to work out a truly fair price based on each co-op’s true cost of production along with social premiums above the fair trade minimum price. We believe in a global community and respecting all individuals as well as the Earth we reside on.

Our Coffee

At Just Us! we only select the finest green beans from democratically run, certified fair trade and organic cooperatives in the Global South. We then roast these beans to perfection in our antique, German-manufactured roasters, pack it, and ship it to you--all in the same day. So when you order Just Us! Coffee, you can know it was roasted fresh to meet your order and maintain the highest possible quality.
