We specialize in fresh-roasted Fair Trade, Organic, 100% Arabica coffee.
If you've bought coffee in any of Austin's fashionable cafes you've no doubt had this incredible coffee. I no longer live in the Austin area but I still order my coffee from Third Coast. The coffee roaster is a perfection nut who only knows how to put out an excellent product - the best beans, the best roasting, the best packaging, the best end product. They are also socially conscious with their Free Trade association. The rest of the team are just as committed to quality performance. Honestly, I didn't know what truly excellent coffee was until I tasted this stuff. I used to specify what beans I want but now just leave it to them - whatever is the freshest when they fill my order. If you are or are willing to become a coffee nut, try this stuff! The perfect cup? Order whole beans, use a burr grinder, brew in a French press. OMG!

The coffee is the best I have ever had. For years I bought the amazing Double French from Central Market, but I have now discovered I can order it direct from the roasters at Third Coast Coffee. It's under new ownership by the roasters from Los Armadillos Coffee, and they introduced me to medium roasts and their Fair Trade Organic coffees. They are amazing! I have never tasted such flavorful, smooth, and fruity coffee.. you can really taste the difference when you get this kind of quality, and get it so fresh! You have to call ahead though. They don't always have a lot of coffee roasted- they only roast to order for their restaurant customers (which is good I guess for those restaurants, it's never sitting around waiting for their order), but I have been by when all the coffee was on its way out the door. It's our Austin secret.. where to get really good coffee fresh from the source.
