Classic Gourmet Coffee
A passion for coffee that became a quest for perfection
With a thirst for great coffee and a small roaster, in 1974 John Rufino produced his first batch. A batch which has led to almost 40 years of quietly evolving the process of selecting, blending and roasting. This evolution is what Classic Gourmet Coffee represents today. A family run business focused on producing the highest quality, best tasting coffee. Utilizing the best technology available, the state-of-the-art equipment along with many years of experience allow us to coax all the subtle qualities that nature bestows on our exceptional coffee.
A Sustainable Commitment
From sourcing to roasting, at Classic we make a conscious effort to ensure our practice is ethically and environmentally sound. We purchase only the finest coffees available and pay beyond market value, hence the growers are rewarded for their skill and dedication to producing exceptional coffees. Classic’s facility is powered by 100% renewable energy, through Bullfrog Power’s natural means of wind and hydro electricity generation. Carbon emissions have always been an unfortunate yet unavoidable byproduct of the roasting process. Our unique system allows us to reduce these emissions and fuel consumption by as much as 77%* versus conventional systems. By means of a recirculating system we are able to retain heat energy and force the byproduct back into the flame to be burned away, eliminating the need for an afterburner.
Certified and Organic and Fair Trade Certified Coffee
