About The Shrub
We are Coffee Sourcerers. We think of our offerings as a curated selection of unique coffees and strive to offer variety and quality while providing valuable resources to help roasters achieve the best possible results in the cup and with the customer.
We sell green coffee in batches that equal roughly a bit less than 1/2 or 3/4 of a traditional jute bag packaged in Grain-Pro lined bags, either 50lbs. or 100lbs. Why 100lbs/45kg bags? Because they are easier to move! Some origins like Guatemala have moved to these smaller bags — and it makes the most sense in terms of bag size. When we receive a coffee vacuum packed, we will resell it that way by the box. You have the convenience of thorough, descriptive reviews as a starting point for your own tasting notes, and relevant information about the farms including images that you can use to promote the coffee.
Coffee Shrub is an outgrowth of Sweet Maria's Coffee. In our travels for SM, we have found dedicated coffee farmers with great quality coffee needing a reliable buyer for their lots, one who will pay sustainable prices over the long term. And we have found our access to great coffees is larger than our home roasting audience can absorb. We can actually bring down our costs in importing and transit for SM and Shrub by buying slightly more. In a nutshell, that's the impetus for forming the Shrub.
Please look over our coffees and see if any of these offerings would complement your current list. If you have questions about specific coffees, you can try posting them in the comments section on the bottom of each coffees' page. This way you might be able to receive feedback not just from us, but from other roasters as well.
