On a snowy New York evening in 2011, Ivan and Sam while having an over-roasted cup of coffee discussed the idea of never finding American made coffee. What started, as a discussion soon became a mission to find a coffee farm in Puerto Rico.
Their friends, Cinthia, Christopher and Benjamin soon joined the mission to find a farm that had the altitude, humidity and the water springs to be sustainable and produce one of the best American Made coffees in the world.
Hiring motivated American workers was among their priorities, and as they learned that Maricao is the poorest city of Puerto Rico their commitment to its community grew. 787 Coffee is currently one of the largest employers of the area and pays above minimum wage salaries as an effort to attract farmers with the highest levels of integrity, values and love for coffee.
Popes and kings used to drink Puerto Rican Coffee and the 5 amigos are working VERY hard to once again take this coffee to lovers and connoisseurs.
We grow it, YOU enjoy it
