Be part of discovering the story and impact behind our coffee.

Novus specializes in sourcing micro-lots, estate grown and premium coffees from thousands of small producers with whom we have long standing relationships.

Our farmers are masters of their craft, so our philosophy is simple: recognize, appreciate, and reward greatness—the rest will follow. We believe in honoring the history and heritage of coffee, and without a farmer, coffee would never see the light of day. In this case, farmers are our greatest strength—and in turn, our customers get the highest quality coffee possible. When sustainability and farmers are at the forefront, happier communities and happier customers follow.

Our headquarters are in Seattle, Washington, but we also have presence in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Brazil, and Vietnam. In order to offer the best and most unique coffees in the business, we also source from producers and exporters all over the world.
