Thrasher Coffee has had the pleasure of doing many local events and supporting several causes throughout Georgia. It is a really amazing experience to get out and meet all of you coffee lovers face to face. Matter of fact, since our cafe opened, we have had some really great locals come in every week and bring their friends and families. During this process, we can show you around the roaster and give you samples of all of our coffees. One question comes up more than any other: “Where do your beans come from?”
I think when you express yourself as a “local coffee company” folks assume the beans are grown locally. We do in fact roast them locally however, we import them from all over the world! Even if conditions were prime, we don’t live in the wonderful coffee belt. That’s not to say you can’t grow it here, it’s just not the best. There is a magical ring around this planet where coffee grows best and it lies between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn.
This would explain why you often times see the same origins being offered from several different coffee companies. But do keep in mind, that having the same origin, does not mean it’s the same roast, or even the same variety of bean. One bean can be roasted countless different ways to unlock many different flavors. In that process this is where craft coffee gets its craftiness! So the answer to “where do your beans come from?” is specific to each roast. Our origins are featured on all of our bags, so you know exactly what you're buying. Below is a list of all our roasts and their origins, so if you're looking to taste around the world, we've got you covered. Keep your luggage packed and let your taste buds do the traveling!
