Martin and Hannah Jennings founded nectar of Life Coffee Company in
January 2003. Their quest was (and is) first, to roast only the finest
gourmet Arabica coffees, and second, to roast only coffees that are
certified both organic and Fair Trade. It is Nectar of Life's belief
that the best way to make Fair Trade certified coffees a staple, instead
of a novelty, is to provide the public with organic Fair Trade coffees
that rival the world's finest gourmet coffees and to offer these coffees
at a reasonable price. Since its foundation, Nectar of Life Coffee Co.
has grown to symbolize the pinnacle of gourmet organic coffee and has
firmly stood on its guiding principles of ecological and social
At this time Nectar of Life Coffee Company is primarily a wholesale
organic coffee roaster. Our only retail outlet is through the internet.
We feel it is more important to focus on producing stellar coffees than
be distracted with operating a café.
Co-Founder and Master Roaster, Martin F. Jennings III, graduated with
High Honors from the University of California, Davis with a degree in
Viticulture and Enology. Martin went on to make fine wines in both
California and Washington State. His love of coffee and organic products
brought him to a point where he knew that there must be a way to roast
organic coffees to have the same full-bodied flavors as the world's
finest non-organic gourmet coffees. With his experience in chemistry,
and sensory (flavor) science Martin left the wine industry to pursue
roasting the finest organic coffees of the world. The result is the
Nectar of Life®.
Nectar of life Coffee Co. sources the highest quality gourmet Arabica
coffees from around the world. Current blends contain coffees from the
following countries: Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, East Timor,
Ethiopia, Guatemala, Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Sumatra and more.
Each coffee is chosen based on meticulous sampling. Unlike other coffee
companies, Nectar of Life roasts each coffee separately to its own
unique flavor profile prior to blending. This method is much more
laborious than roasting a blend in one batch, but the result is more
than worth the effort. Each blend is heat sealed in de-gassing valve
equipped bags within hours of roasting, ensuring a coffee that will
taste fresh roasted for up to one year after roasting.
