Kinetic Koffee Special Roast Feature: HONDURAS FTO CAPUCAS
At Kinetic Koffee, we always strive to conduct business in a way that is consistent with our values. We purchase only Certified Organic coffee beans, and we purchase from farms owned and operated by minority groups such as women and family owned businesses. Our coffees are always naturally shade grown and we search for farms utilizing environmentally sustainable practices. You can taste the difference in the first sip.
