Our Mission in Conservation
Supporting conservation goes beyond giving in dollars. Our goal is to support conservation both where the coffee is grown and where it is consumed. We've selected some of our favorite North American conservation organizations to give back to and commit our own time to conservation projects on a local and national level.
On the growing side of things, we purchase beans grown on small farms, by passionate farmers who are paid fairly for the premium, specialty grade coffee they produce. As we build our business, our commitment is to work with farmers to continually improve agricultural practices by addressing issues of deforestation, wildlife habitat regeneration, and runoff. The goal is to work with farmers towards a regenerative model of coffee production. It's an on-going process that we are committed to scale as our business grows.
When you buy Wild Rivers Coffee, you are doing more than just giving back to Conservation in North America. You are helping bring change to the coffee industry and supporting small farmers in making environmentally focused changes to land management practices. You're also getting some of the best darn coffee on the planet!

Fresh Coffee is the Best Coffee
To get the most out of your coffee experience, it is important to buy fresh roasted coffee beans and grind your beans fresh each morning.
During the roasting process, coffee beans are exposed to temperatures between 400-500 degrees in the roaster. As soon as the roasting process is complete, the beans start "degassing" (releasing of Carbon Dioxide). This degassing process lasts roughly 7 days. Allowing this process to complete itself is important to avoid any off flavors caused by the gas. From roughly day 7-30, your coffee is in its absolute PRIME.
When you grind your coffee beans, you're exposing more surface area of the beans to the air and eventually to the water when brewing. When ground, beans release aroma, flavor and should be brewed immediately to capture all of that flavor. Buying pre-ground beans will leave you with a dull and tasteless cup of coffee.
At Wild Rivers, we source premium quality beans and roast weekly to ensure your beans arrive at their peak freshness. Grinding your beans fresh each day will leave you more satisfied with your cup of coffee and open up the unique flavors and tasting notes exhibited by our various beans.
