    "We believe in operating in an accessible and transparent fashion, making every effort to embrace not only our customer base, but also our brothers and sisters in competing cafes and roasteries. A strong community is key to pushing the limits of the industry in quality, sustainability, and beyond. Being a strong family is not only important to Specialty Coffee’s sustainable growth, but it also makes for a much more enjoyable work atmosphere. We reject the coffee-snob elitisms that is all too often associated with our industry. Simply put, it’s nice to be nice."

    Forty Weight's business goal is to become a 100% direct trade company in the coming years. They do not "limit to sourcing Organic and Fair Trade coffees because we find both certification systems to be heavily flawed at times as well as prohibitively expensive, often adversely affecting the participating farmers."
