Small Batches Roasted To Order
At Rustic Route, Coffee is routine; Roasted and enjoyed daily. Our mission is to provide high-quality, fairly sourced coffee at a price you can afford.
LGBTQ women-owned and operated company dedicated to giving back to help those in need.
We don’t offer returns on our whole or ground beans because they are food products. If the coffee is not to your liking and within a 30-day time frame of your purchase date, we’d be happy to ship you another bag of a different roast level. If a mug or shirt is broken or torn, we will send another proof of the issue. No refunds will be issued.
The best quality coffee should be sipped when freshly ground. We ship or deliver our beans whole so that you can experience the full taste profile of the bean. Purchase a grinder for your home that can grind the beans to the correct consistency for your coffee maker or pour them over. Trust us, you will be thankful you purchased an at-home grinder – the taste difference will make you never purchase ground coffee again.
- Grind coffee = Use 1.6–2 grams whole bean coffee per 1 oz (28 grams) water, adjusting to taste.
- Brew with water heated to between 195 and 205F.
- Store whole bean coffee in an airtight container, out of direct sunlight, and away from heat, cold, and moisture.
When you order it! We do not roast any beans until they have been purchased. You could have the highest quality beans, but they won’t taste right unless they are as fresh as possible. Every bag will have a roast date on the bottom. Beans are best if used within 2-3 weeks of the roast date.
All our beans are roasted and sold as a single origin. This offers the most excellent chance to taste the authentic flavors of the beans from various locations around the world, such as Ethiopia, Nicaragua, Colombia, and Guatemala. We aim to have unique reserve offerings throughout the year.
Rustic Route goes through an extensive process to find the highest quality beans with unique flavor profiles. We roast all beans in Barnesville, MD, on our new Mill City roaster. If you have questions about the beans, roasting process, or products, please contact us through email.
