SPECIALTY COFFEE IS FOR EVERYONE
No matter where you are in your coffee journey, we believe speciality coffee is for you. We want to encourage you to explore the amazing world of speciality coffee which is why we offer coffee with benefits!
Start with, "Why?"
Why did we start the Coffee Marketplace?
Our mission is to introduce more coffee drinkers to speciality coffee. There are thousands of amazing speciality coffee roasters that coffee drinkers have yet to discover. We want to help all coffee drinkers discover new and amazing coffee roasters from all over the globe!
COVID-19 has impacted business. Times are tough for everyone but especially small businesses. Many if not most local coffee roasters are small businesses and we think it's our duty to help support them during these tough times!
Built by coffee roasters and coffee drinkers!
The Coffee Marketplace is truly one of a kind, as it was built by both speciality coffee roasters as well as coffee drinkers from all over the globe. We challenged the coffee community to answer the question, "What does the perfect online coffee community look like when introducing coffee drinkers to speciality coffee?" After countless conversations, meetings, and brainstorming sessions, we developed the Coffee Marketplace, a global coffee community - coffee with benefits, which is taking the coffee world by storm!
Designed with the coffee roasters and coffee lovers top of mind!
By building this community side-by-side with coffee lovers and roasters, it helped keep our team grounded. We were able to ensure that our community was built with both the roasters and coffee lovers at top of mind, while furthering our mission to introduce more coffee drinkers to speciality coffee. We built the Coffee Marketplace by appreciating all the good that comes from existing coffee communities, and subscription programs, while challenging ourselves to elevate our community by innovating on the current issues imposed on the coffee roasters and customers in these communities or programs. We have cracked the code, and the Coffee Marketplace is just that!
Our promise is to never settle. Our promise is to stay dedicated to creating a global community that benefits both coffee lovers and coffee roasters. Our promise is to listen to feedback and continue to evolve. Our promise is to our mission. Our promise is to continue to introduce more coffee lovers around the globe to speciality coffee.
Our promise is to the coffee community. We love you.
Built for coffee lovers!
The Coffee Marketplace encourages coffee lovers to explore the speciality coffee further compared to other communities or programs as our community improves the coffee buying experience in the following ways;
 We give the buying power back to the coffee lover - anyone can toss a couple of coffee bags (from roasters they've cut deals with) into a box and ship it out to you at a premium price. We don't believe in that. YOU get to choose who YOU want to buy coffee from - the power is in YOUR hands!
 We provide exclusive coffee benefits that are not available to the public - we've worked with each of our roasters to provide exclusive coffee deals that are only available to Coffee Marketplace members. Each roaster provides their own deals, meaning the benefits can differ from roaster to roaster! Benefits range from deeper discounts, merchandise, free sample bags to so much more!
 We don't spend your money - unlike many other typical coffee communities or subscription programs, we are not forcing you to purchase coffee every month. We will provide you with exclusive codes each month, and YOU choose if YOU want to purchase coffee. You are in complete control!
 We encourage coffee education through exploratory learning - we are successful when coffee drinkers are learning more about different specialty coffee roasters and their amazing coffee offerings. We don't just toss a 4x4 card in a box with a couple of lines about the roaster and coffees. Through our model, we proactively encourage coffee drinkers to visit the roasters website to dive deeper in learning about their stories, process and products.
We celebrate our roasters!
The Coffee Marketplace is powered by amazing speciality roasters! Without them, we wouldn't be able to share incredible speciality coffee options with our members! We celebrate our roasters by approaching our relationship with them as one focused one putting them first. We began this coffee community to support these roasters through COVID-19. We know that now, more than ever before, we need to come together and support local coffee roasters! Our model was built to improve the four major gaps imposed on roasters by the other communities or coffee subscription programs;
 Our branding takes a back seat - we are truly dedicated to promoting the roasters. They've worked hard on their branding, so we wouldn't dare steal the spotlight by re-bagging their coffee or hiding their bags in boxes labeled with our own branding. We want our members to experience the roaster's full coffee experience which is why we encourage our members to visit their websites!
 No fulfillment nightmare here - joining coffee communities or subscription programs can be an absolute fulfillment nightmare for roasters. Usually these nightmares come with additional costs to the roasters! With our model, it's business as usual for our roasters. We bring our community members to their online stores to purchase through their typical fulfillment model.
 They never worry about coffee freshness - we never touch the coffee - therefore the roasters never worry about when the coffee is actually getting into the hands of their customer. The roasters can rest assured knowing that our community members is receiving their freshest coffee. How do we know? They're the ones sending it!
 We let the roasters connect with our community members - did you know that roasters never find out who their coffee is being sent to when partnering with coffee subscription companies? To us, that's ridiculous! Our model allows roasters to better connect with our members giving them the opportunity to deepen their relationships!
