WE’RE CHANGING THE WORLD OF COFFEE.
From Latin America to Austin and beyond.
We’re extremely passionate about coffee and we respect its importance to people. In fact, nearly 25 million rely upon coffee for their livelihood, and we know that to those who drink it, coffee is irreplaceable. We cherish the feeling you get when you taste a great cup, and deeply respect the long journey the bean has made. We’re excited by the beauty of a well-made espresso, and we’re not alone. We’re part of a world community that celebrates all that is coffee – just like the thousands of growers, roasters and baristas all striving for perfection.
Our founder’s quest began in Honduras at the base of a mountain where he discovered the essence of the perfect cup. He realized that coffee has a soul, and care and respect for it from tree to cup is what made his truly perfect cup. From that day forward we embarked on the journey to bring perfection to as many people as we can every step of the way.
We have a different approach. We believe that perfect is personal. It’s something as unique as each person and as unique as each bean. We think you should decide what it means to you. Perfect lies in the differences, not in the similarities of a one-size-fits all world. Beauty is what stands out. It’s what catches your attention in an otherwise static environment and taste is no different. A gram here, a degree there is what defines extraordinary. It’s why the four star chef adds just the right amount of seasoning. It’s why the artist considers every brush stroke. We think perfect coffee requires the same level of care, precision, and heart.
Our coffee is roasted by a skilled, experienced roaster in our hometown of Austin, Texas. Like any group of “coffee fanatics,” we have lots of spirited discussions and everyone has an opinion. However in the end, the objective is simple: find the right roast for the beans Briggo has selected for our blend.
Currently, we are using beans from Nicaragua, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Guatemala. In arriving at the perfect roast for our coffee, we think about each component and what it is about that coffee we want to see in the cup.
Irrespective of roasting philosophy, there are a couple things we know for sure. One is that coffees that are very lightly roasted display pronounced tangy acidity. Coffees that are roasted very dark tend to have smoky flavor and come across as thin. So the trick is to figure out where on the continuum from sour to burned (to put it simply) a given coffee blend tastes best.
At Briggo, we believe our coffee tastes best when the acidity is noticeably present but not dominant, and when the coffee’s body is at its peak – before the coffee is so dark that it tastes thin. In other words, it’s all about balance.
Our Commitment to Sustainability
We want to create opportunities for customers, employees, and partners by continuously improving what we consume and how we consume it.
CREATE OPPORTUNITIES: We are proud of the jobs we have created and the careers we will nurture. We are actively exploring partnerships, practicums and research opportunities with higher education institutions. As we trace our supplies, namely our coffee back to its origin, we want to inspire our customers to connect to these farmers and co-op service providers. We are also actively exploring corporate partners for well-building and other clean water initiatives at our countries of origin and will share our initiatives in the near future.
WHAT WE CONSUME: We are perpetually searching for trusted partners and vetting our supply chain participants for responsible practices and fair prices. We want to ensure the dairy, flavorings, and sweeteners we use to help create perfect cups of coffee are of the highest quality and sustainably sourced. We seek local-first technology partners to help us bring our robotics and cloud computing capabilities to life.
HOW WE CONSUME: We trace all of our raw materials from source to finished product, and are constantly seeking more efficient, lower-waste alternatives to producing great coffee. We not only compost our ground coffee at our headquarters, but we also leverage local composting service providers at each retail outlet. Finally, by nature of reducing the traditional specialty coffee retail footprint with our unattended Coffee Haus, we are operating much more energy efficiently than retail alternatives.
Our global headquarters is located in the heart of Austin’s northwest corridor, next to the popular Domain district.
