At Pintail Coffee our high-quality coffees are inspired by the beauty of the Pintail duck. Deep chocolate browns, muted grays and the rich black coloring inspired a blending of flavors carefully roasted together to achieve the perfect cup of coffee, every cup, every time.
Our coffee is made of the highest quality Arabica beans sourced from farms all over the globe- including Brazil, Colombia, Africa and Indonesia. Typically they are from high-altitudes to provide a richer and denser bean. The result is a stellar flavor with a “totally dissolved solid” rating of 9+. These beans are responsibly sourced, with an aim to building lasting relationships with farmers for years to come. Pintail Coffee vows to donate all profits to end hunger.
