A&E Coffee is a local coffee and tea company out of Nashua, NH. They opened in 2001 and were the first USDA Certified Gourmet Organic Coffee Roaster in New Hampshire. Each batch of coffee is carefully roasted in the Nashua facility by A&E Coffee roast-master. They source excellent coffees for both our single origin and blend programs, insuring quality + sustainable coffees across the board. It is batch-roasted to bring out the unique characteristics embedded in each coffee variety, with blending always happening after the roast.
All Organic Coffee
A&E Coffee is committed to offering of a variety of certified-organic, single origin, coffee from around the world. While all of their coffee is organic, some are not labeled as "certified organic" on the bag. This is because the team at A&E firmly believes in working directly with small farmers and oftentimes these farmers cannot afford the organic certification even though their practices are fully organic and sustainable.
What About Mycotoxins?
As always, the quality of the beans is of upmost importance. When beans (especially ground beans) sit around, they are more likely to develop mold and contain toxins that can have a negative impact on our overall health. Mycotoxins develop when unsafe roasting and storage practices are combined with certain strands of mold. We appreciate A&E Coffee's commitment to serving fresh coffee. They source green beans (which are recognized for their incredible health benefits!) and roast every Monday for the orders going out that week to ensure optimal freshness in every bag. While it is true that they do not specifically test for mold and mycotoxins like Purity does, their small batch, green organic beans, and weekly roasting practices all support coffee quality and reduce mold and mycotoxin risk. We still carry Purity coffee, but we appreciate A&E Coffee's robust flavors in their signature gourmet options along with the rotating seasonal blends.
