Lost Coffee's mission is to “inspire the world though our craft, our care, and our conscience.”
Care and intentionality are at the heart of everything they do. Lost believes deeply in connecting with individuals in the production chain who are often overlooked.
"We source our coffee from importers who focus on fair wages for individuals who get lost in the coffee industry, such as women, wash plant workers, and farmers."
Lost believes that providing livable wages is paramount and even goes so far as to work with importers who have welfare checks for all the individuals working on their farms. These checks ensure the funds are going to the individuals and not other people within their family.
"We want individuals to feel empowered and sustained in their homes. Providing fair and livable wages allows them to do that and grow where they call home."
They also focus on bringing in coffee from women-owned farms.
"Women are very overlooked in the industry and we aim to help them be able to lead."
Once the coffee is in their hands, Lost's Castle Rock roasting team "dials in the coffee to produce the best roast for the blend. We then go through our roasting and bagging process to get you the most freshly roasted and high quality coffee."
Being based out of Colorado, Lost loves living up to their name and getting lost in nature. Along with sharing their love of delicious coffee, Lost wants to remind people to get outdoors.
"We love partnering with local non-profits in Colorado, specifically nonprofits that help individuals get lost in nature. We donate a specific amount of sales to these organizations."
When asked what their favorite part of being in the coffee industry is, Lost couldn't hold back their passion for their craft.
"We love high quality coffee and we love the people we get to share that with!"
