The Coffee Ride
To us, community isn’t just proximal. Community is belonging to and supporting something that you believe in, love and want to share with others. Living in this fast paced Amazon world, now more than ever we are needing to slow down and are seeking connection to the products we use daily. Our goal at The Coffee Ride is to sustainably fill that need by sourcing amazing and meaningful coffees that give back to their communities, roast them to perfection, and deliver you the same fresh bean experience to your front door; whether it's locally bicycle delivered here in Boulder or shipped anywhere Nationwide. Basically a coffee that no matter where you make it, is like a warm hug from a loved one in every cup. How it all began: The Coffee Ride all kicked off when our founder Josh began bringing in the coffee he was roasting at home and making a morning Chemex brew for his coffee-centric co-workers to avoid the dreaded bad office coffee. This quickly turned into a morning ritual where more and more people began showing up early to gather, converse, and take a moment to relax before the hectic day began. This community building exercise brought a sense of camaraderie to the workplace and visibly transformed the attitudes of everyone involved. Josh saw how coffee brings people together and gives a sense of unity among people’s diverse qualities and allowed otherwise inhibited conversations to facilitate. It was after realizing the possibility of this transformation for others that Josh took his favorite things; his 20 min bicycle commute to work, nerding out on roasting coffee, creating community, and his nostalgia for his grandfather Jerry the milkman… and The Coffee Ride was born.
