“Proud to be one of the World’s 10 Most Ethical Companies.”
– 2013, 2014 Forbes Magazine & The Ethisphere Institute
We are proud the be the only coffee house in Memphis serving Illy coffees. A family business (like our own), Illy’s signature blend is composed of nine different Arabica beans of the highest quality. We love that Illy’s beans are purchased directly from the growers that care for them using fair margin prices. This means that rather than paying mere fair market value for their beans they insist on paying a percentage over to compensate growers difficulties they might have experienced during the season. Illy is also organic – although to the Italians that just means they make coffee the best way, without chemicals or pesticides. Its perfect balance is re-calibrated every harvest to provide their signature taste, cup after cup.
