Sandhill Coffee uses its beans for the finest cup of joe—and, occasionally, a collaborative beer.
Just as a vineyard’s terroir vastly impacts the flavor profile of a good wine, coffee’s subtle nuances are shaped by its origins. The team at suburban-based Sandhill Coffee put in countless hours of research to find the perfect beans for an eco-friendly coffee experience akin to drinking fine wine. Founder Phil Wingo chalks it up to the varietals. Sandhill’s beans are sourced from farms around the world that prioritize care and quality. He takes things one step further with the use of compostable coffee bags and collaborations with brands like Alter Brewing Company on a coffee-infused stout. Whether it’s the Juan Carlos, using beans grown by a Nicaraguan farmer named Juan Carlos, or La Suiza, featuring the complex flavors of a bourbon varietal, the information mapped out on each bag connects coffee connoisseurs to every sip.
