As we continue to spotlight our new vendors to the market, we are excited to speak with Jordan Tomb, of his eponymous Organic Coffee & Tea Company, headquartered out of Bellevue.
I’m a visual artist, musician, and a big-time fan of specialty coffee. We founded the company on the principles of promoting the quality of our lives, over the quantity of our things, through art, design, and organic treats (and good business practices).
The idea was for Jordan Tomb’s to be much more than just another specialty coffee company. We wanted to launch the company with the best products – from day one – and to keep improving from there. As an example, Jordan Tomb’s only selects and roasts the best tasting, single origin, certified organic and certified Fairtrade coffees. There are no conventional options in the mix, and there never will be. We don’t make any compromises with the quality of the coffee.
We chose to certify as Fairtrade because we wanted to verify that people were being treated and compensated fairly and that their natural environments are being protected. It’s important to us to prove that what we are representing about our products is true. We want people to know that we can be trusted and that we really are considering people and the planet with each of our products.
Additionally, each of our coffees has its own roasting profile – a mixture of art and science – that considers the size, shape, moisture content, and density of the green beans. We only small-batch-roast our coffee; all of our processing equipment is stainless steel (no plastic); and we pack our coffee in 100% compostable packaging (again, no plastic). All of our coffees are single-origin, small-batch-roasted to perfection (in Bellevue), certified organic, certified Fairtrade, and are in 100% compostable packaging (including the labels, zippers, and valves). All of our loose-leaf teas, matchas, and herbal infusions are packaged in Bellevue, certified organic, and are in 100% compostable packaging.
We will be introducing and test-marketing some new varieties organic coffees and organic loose leaf teas as the season progresses.
This is our first year so we are excited about participating in our local farmers market. Visit Jordan and his business partner Tim at the market, and in the future, at the location on Lincoln Ave in Bellevue.
