All of our blends are artisan roasted from 100% Arabica beans and offer balanced aroma, body and flavor for every taste. Our By the Bean coffees begin with the selection of superior seeds and does not end until we have delivered perfectly roasted coffee.  


A Perfect Cup for Every Customer

• Artisan roasted from 100% Arabica beans which are sustainably sourced.
• Six distinctive blends offering balanced aroma, body and flavor for every taste.
• Perfect roasts and superior quality means satisfaction for your customers.


Quality from the Source

• We specify our blends to be roasted from only high grade beans grown in the premier coffee regions of South and Central America.
• The climate, rainfall and care in harvesting all contribute to the superior quality of the bean.


Cup of CoffeeRainforest Alliance Certified™

Rainforest Alliance Certified SealThe little green frog seal assures your diners that By the Bean coffee is sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms that meet the rigorous criteria of the Sustainable Agriculture Network(SAN), where workers and their families enjoy dignified, safe conditions, and where wildlife and habitats are protected. Learn more about our certification.


The Perfect Roast

Achieving the perfect roast profile is critical to the overall flavor of a particular coffee; a long, slow roast will result in a lifeless cup that is devoid of flavor, and a fast roast will leave the center of the bean underdeveloped with a sour taste.

Through minor changes in the amount of heat applied or the flow of air through the roaster, our  roast masters make subtle adjustments to the roasting profile, ensuring that each batch of beans is roasted to its peak of flavor.

During roasting, four major things occur to the coffee seeds:

1. They lose some of their water content making the beans lighter.
2. Sugars inside the beans are caramelized into flavor oils contributing to the body of the finished cup.
3. The natural acidity or brightness of the coffee is gradually reduced.

4. The cell walls of the seed itself are broken down which creates a bean that is prone to staling if not immediately and properly packaged or consumed.


Responsibly Produced Coffee

• By the Bean is from a vertically-integrated organization which is considered to be perhaps the world’s more socially conscious and environmentally sound coffee producer.
• Employees are paid significantly higher wages than other producers.
• Employees have full dental and medical benefits.
• Families are provided with housing and children have access to schools and school uniforms.


Gentle Mills

• Our supplier is widely regarded as the finest coffee mills in the world.
• They set the standards for sustainable coffee processing using hydroelectric power generated on-site and a biomass furnace which recycles the by-produce of the coffee fruit as a fuel for drying the coffee.
• One of these mills has been recognized by the President of Costa Rica and allowed our supplier to win the Bandera Blanca from the Government of Costa Rica in recognition for its contribution to ecologically sustainable coffee processing.


Sustainable Agriculture

• Renewable and non-polluting power sources.
• Operates residual water treatment plant.
• 300-acre forest of old-growth woodlands set aside 20 years ago as natural reserve.
• Soil testing conducted twice a year.
• All weeding done by hand, no use of herbicides or pesticides.


Coffee Flavor Profiles

Six Flavor Profiles for Discerning Customers

By the Bean BeansColombian Royale
SweBy the Bean logoet Medium Body, Slightly Acidic, Medium Roast

100% Colombian and 100% Arabica. Bright, slightly acidic, and medium body characterizes this great cup of coffee. This is a very aromatic sweet smelling, medium roast coffee grown in high elevations. 

Bistro Mia
Medium Body, Well Rounded, Dark Roast

A delicious blend of 100% Arabica beans sourced from both Brazilian and Costa Rica. Our Brazilian beans come from the Bahia region while the Costa Rican are from either the Tarrazu or Tres Rios areas. We dark roast the beans under watchful eye of an experienced Roast Master in order to bring out a slightly smokey coffee with hints of chocolate and caramel. Well-balanced in acidity, and medium bodied with a great finish.

House Blend
Well balanced for acidity, aroma and flavor, Medium Roast

Mountain Premo
Full Flavor, Bright Finish, Medium Roast

A delicious blend of 100% Arabica coffee from Brazilian, Costa Rican, and Mexican High Grown beans. Our Brazilian beans come from the Bahia region while the Costa Rican from either the Tarrazu or Tres Rios areas and the Mexican beans are sourced from the high elevation Coatapec area of Vera Cruz. We medium roast the beans under watchful eye of an experienced Roast Master to produce our most complex tasting coffee. Well-balanced, medium body, with hints of apricot and nuts.

French Roast
Bold Flavor, Full Body, Low Acidity, Dark Roast

Our French Roast coffee is smokey with hints of chocolate and caramel. We created this blend using 100% Arabica beans from Peru, Costa Rica, and Colombia. This is a dark roast, full flavored, low acidic coffee that is not over roasted. In fact we take great care to pull the beans from the roaster just as they reach the perfect temperature. The beans are then “quenched” to ensure they are not overoasted. 

Espresso Whole Bean
Full Flavored, Mildly Acidic, Smooth and Syrupy

Our Northern Italian style espresso is distinct for its roast. In order to deliver a complex full flavor coffee we roast the beans to a medium color rather than dark. We think this creates a distinctive Espresso as well as drip coffee rich in flavor, body and aroma. Our Espresso Whole Bean Blend is made of 100% Arabica beans from Brazil and Mexico. The Brazilian beans come from the Bahia region while the Mexican beans are sourced from the high elevation Coatapec area of Vera Cruz. 


Product Tip

To ensure the freshest tasting coffee it is important that you store it correctly.  If you keep your coffee  - whole bean or ground - away from air, light, heat, and/or moisture you can protect your investment and serve a better tasting cup.

We know it can be seen as a convenience but try to avoid pre-filling filter baskets; it doesn’t take much time for the product's integrity to be lost.

If you are not going to use the whole bag of beans or already ground product seal it in an airtight, opaque container that is stored away from heat and light.

Also avoid storing product in the freezer or under refrigeration - there is too much moisture in those environments.
