Farmers are the backbone of not only what we do at Augie’s, but the coffee industry as a whole; they’re essential to our goal of serving and drinking delicious coffee. For us, nothing is quite the same as meeting a man or woman who grows coffee, and realizing that they do it so well that we can buy it for a premium and share it with you guys. Many of the farmers we buy coffee from are friends of ours; we follow them on Instagram, visit them at their homes.. When we’re not able to meet the farmer ourselves, we make it a point to work with importers that we believe have similar goals of improving the lives of everyone involved in the chain of making delicious coffee.
Customers, Baristas, Community
We love our customers. We really love our staff. Our staff loves our customers. Customers love our staff. It’s like, a whole thing. We’re in a relationship, it’s complicated.
Community is what makes this whole thing go. We do our best to support local organizations and nonprofits. Donations, raffle items, etc. We strive to work with local business. Use their products, supply them with ours. Breweries, a la minute, Parliament Chocolate, local produce suppliers, and even spas. We hope to help weave a web of quality and caring within all the communities we operate in.
