If there’s one thing we stand for at Alpen Sierra, it’s quality in product and process. We’ve adopted state-of-the-art roasting technologies at our facility in Minden, Nevada—where our seasoned roasting team employs industry-leading practices to painstakingly ensure full flavor development in every single bean.

Our mission is to enrich the lives of coffee growers and coffee drinkers alike. At the heart of what we do is a consistent focus on quality, expertise, and fair, verifiable business practices. From ensuring our farmers and their communities have access to clean water, education, and medical services to using our proceeds to support Lake Tahoe non-profit initiatives. Everything we do at Alpen Sierra is done with the health of our local and global community in mind.

We are currently certified with the USDA’s National Organic Program as an Organic Handler and Processor. We also hold certifications from Fair Trade USA, the Rainforest Alliance, and the Café Femenino Program. Above all, we choose to source only premium, sustainably-produced coffees from small growers and farms that empower women and their communities—even if it means a smaller profit margin for us.
