THE SEARCH

The search begins with identifying world-class coffees from a number of established and up-and-coming producers across the globe. We only serve the top 3% of coffee in the world at Ascension.

When a coffee is considered for our program, it undergoes a rigorous review process. This process includes a review of the farm that produces the coffee alongside various social, fair-trade and environmental considerations to support ongoing sustainability efforts for the farm suppliers.

THE PRE-SELECTION

Our team is deeply committed to transparency in our coffee sourcing. For some of our coffees we work directly with producers to source the coffee we purchase, including small holder farms and larger cooperatives. In some cases we rely on the skill of our importing partners to find potential suppliers. We are proud to work with coffee importers who share our values and prioritize transparency throughout the supply chain.

All sourced coffees are sent to our Dallas roastery to be cupped and tasted by our in-house Q Arabica grader.
