New York Tradition
Before roasting coffee in Hawai'i, I was a Fire Fighter in New York City. After 21 years of service, I retired from the FDNY as a Lieutenant. I worked in many different firehouses and I loved that although every firehouse was unique with its own personality, they all began each tour with the exact same tradition: sipping a cup coffee together at the kitchen table.
Roasted With Aloha
In the firehouse, coffee brought us together. From our greatest accomplishments, to our most challenging days, the fresh aroma of a pot of coffee was the siren luring us into the kitchen. The laughter, bond and camaraderie of those memories are what inspires me to roast amazing coffee for you to enjoy.
Tradition Coffee Roasters is family owned & loved. We also love supporting our farmers who utilize organic and sustainable methods to protect our environment. Beans are meticulously chosen based on their quality and flavor profile. Roasting small batch coffee showcases the beauty of global variations and ensures the freshest roast possible. There is New York Tradition in every sip and Aloha in every cup.
Living in Hawai'i gives us first hand experience in seeing what plastics, pollution and over consumption does to our 'Aina. We are firm believers that as a small business, we have an impact on the environment by what materials we use, how we source our beans and how we engage with our community. In addition to supporting farmers through fair trade, we choose to work with those that utilize sustainable, organic and environmentally sound farming practices. We do not use plastics wherever possible and our packaging is fully recyclable.
