Coffee

We want to provide the freshest coffee possible. If you don't grind your own coffee already, the easiest way to improve the flavor is to grind it just before brewing.

Use a burr grinder instead of a cheap "helicopter blade" or "chopper" grinder. A burr grinder will be more consistent. The high RPM of a helicopter grinder generates too much heat and creates inconsistent grind sizes. This will cause your coffee to be unevenly extracted. 

Don't have a grinder? We sell the Knock Aergrinder, hand made in Scotland and (in our opinion) the best hand grinder for value in the world.

More info in our blog, "First Crack". 

Try it :) We source high quality specialty coffee from reputable importers, and then roast it with care in small batches. To assure fresh supply, we carefully choose a limited number of varieties and packaging options. We lease Loring roasting equipment for the highest standards of roast consistency and energy efficiency. Roast profiles are incrementally tweaked and improved from batch to batch.

General

From bean to cup, the coffee industry intersects with myriad ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) considerations. We carefully consider our ESG impact in the following respects:

Environmental: We prioritize compostable and recyclable packaging, such as our Kraft recyclable 12 oz bags. 

Social: We believe that facilitating credit for small businessses helps build a stronger middle class and thus helps reduce income inequality. Thus, we provide zero interest micro loans for coffee farmers and retailers worldwide

Governance: We recognize the importance of impeccable values and ethics in our dealings with customers and partners. In particular, we avoid excessive marketing puffery and strive to present "just the facts" about our products.

 

 

"Beim" is a phonetic play on "tudo bem", a Brazilian Portugese phrase meaning "all good".

Beim was founded by Per Anderson and Amy Smith. More information about Beim's founders can be found here
