[Klatch, noun]: An informal gathering for coffee and conversation, simply stated, is what Klatch Coffee is. For the past 25 years, Klatch Coffee has been serving up award-winning coffee with great conversation. Based in Los Angeles, this family business started out of a love for great coffee with one retail store and has evolved into a global wholesale roaster and retailer with its coffee featured daily on three continents.
Klatch coffees are born as a result of nurturing relationships with the farmers who grow the beans. It is our belief that the art of Klatch begins right where the seeds are planted. Green buyer and roastmaster Mike Perry painstakingly travels the globe to ensure that we have the first look at the finest results of each harvest. Our commitment to honest business practices means we build trust and loyalty with the farmers we work with. All of this is accomplished through a Direct Trade model and a simple handshake. That's the way we do business.
After the beans are sourced, they make their way to our home in Southern California where the quest for only the best continues. Thanks to a degree in Chemical Engineering, we achieve a balance of science and artistry that we call “Peak of Flavor” roast style. Simply put, each individual coffee varietal is roasted to its unique peak flavor profile. The care we put into sourcing and roasting has been recognized through awards such as “Micro Roaster of the Year,” “Best Espresso in the World” at the World Barista Championships in 2007, and Coffee Review’s 2014 Coffee of the Year. In addition, over 80 percent of our coffees cupped by Coffee Review have scored 90 points and above. Most recently we were awarded the Golden Bean Overall Champion in 2015 and Chain Champion in 2016 and 2017.
