DISTANT LANDS COFFEE
Distant Lands Coffee’s legacy began with
coffee farmers back in 1968. The company
planted its first coffee tree in Costa Rica with
a singular vision—to conscientiously produce superior quality coffee in a manner that
enriches the land and the quality of life for
workers on its farms, company officials say.
Today, the Renton, Wash.-based company’s coffees are recognized by experts to
be among the best in the world. Its business
has evolved and grown over the years from a
single coffee farming and milling operation
into a one-of-a-kind vertically integrated
specialty coffee business. Distant Lands
operates a continuously linked global supply chain that includes owned and partner
coffee farms and mills, green coffee sourcing, roasting, packaging and distribution of
premium Arabica coffees.
“We remain committed to our legacy of
earth-friendly coffee growing and milling and the creation of sustainable livelihoods and thriving communities,” says
Russ Kramer, executive vice president and
CMO. “We maintain close visibility and
quality control throughout all steps of the
supply chain, which enables Distant Lands
to deliver superior quality and consistency
with each and every lot of coffee.
