Founded by a 3rd gen Indigenous farmer
Our founder, Ervin Liz, was raised learning about the crop: its challenges, its rewards, and its community. Growing up in this environment, Ervin realized that the coffee industry often left the farmers he knew shortchanged. In many cases, their pay wasn't even enough to provide for their families.
Tackling the root of the problem
This first-hand experience inspired Ervin to create a coffee company that pays farmers #10%andmore and gives them the credit they've earned. Native Root Coffee delivers top-of-the-line coffee grown at Ervin's family farm as well as those grown by his neighbors. Our mission is to build a connection between our farmers and our customers. Coffee is a universal language, so let's get talking.
To connect craft coffee lovers to Colombian coffee farmers, pay our farmers what they deserve, and produce the highest quality Colombian coffee available.
Growing Strong Roots
These 3 core elements are helping us build a strong healthy community of coffee lovers.
Coffee is a universal language. We want to use our coffee to bridge cultural barriers and help people strengthen their relationships.
Top 5% in quality
Not only is our coffee hand-selected 3 separate times during the production process, but it is also roasted by the 2021 Latin American roasting champion.
Sustainability goes so much deeper than being "eco-friendly". We focus on all three pillars of sustainability - environmental, economic, and social - to make a wholistically healthy business.
