We are Torque
We aim to be Coffee’s Nemesis. Our goal is to break the coffee supply chain. Break it by torquing the value balance. Give value where value is due. Its simple: we value the producers work based on the value to us. 20% of the retail price of the coffee is due the producer.
We put the power in your hands. You are the torque that breaks the chains and forces equilibrium. Your choices create a new triangle chain and rebalance risk and reward. No feel good stories, no comforting words. Just proof backed by data.
We aim to show that amazing coffees sourced with intention and focus, roasted exquisitely and blended culinarily can achieve immense sweetness, clarity and balance. That paying more for quality coffees without requiring producers harness some bizarre acid reflux fermentation, or rare genome splicing, means that they can focus on sweetness and quality and deliver their best work.
We roast at the California Roasting Collective right here in San Diego, CA. Nanelle does most of the roasting on the San Franciscan SF25 12kilo roaster. She pulls a lot of sweetness out of that lively little machine!
