Founded by Kevin and Patrick, Puente is a testament to our shared love for the art and craft of coffee. From the verdant fields of coffee plantations to the serene moments of brewing perfection, our journey is imbued with a deep-rooted appreciation for the rich heritage and meticulous care that goes into each cup. Join us as we invite you to discover the stories, traditions, and exceptional experiences that define Puente.

Our Story

Kevin's journey began amidst the lush fields of a plantation, where childhood escapades seamlessly intertwined with the meticulous care of coffee plants. From playful hide-and-seek sessions to nurturing precious beans, his upbringing instilled a deep connection to coffee cultivation. This early bond with the land and its fruits planted the seeds for Puente's philosophy of quality and sustainability.

Patrick's relationship with coffee started during college, offering stability amidst life's chaos. What began as a morning ritual evolved into a profound meditation on brewing science and artistry. His exploration of the delicate balance of flavors and the precision required in brewing has become an integral part of our approach at Puente.

Our Philosophy

At Puente, we specialize in lighter roasted coffee, preserving the intricate flavors and natural characteristics of the coffee bean. Our lighter roasts highlight the unique profiles of each origin, offering a vibrant and complex taste that's both refreshing and memorable.

Our coffee is roasted in small batches, ensuring that each batch receives the meticulous attention it deserves. This process allows us to maintain consistency and superior quality in every roast, giving you a truly exceptional cup of coffee every time.

We adhere to uncompromising quality standards in both roasting and brewing. Our team is dedicated to perfecting each step of the process, ensuring that every cup of coffee is crafted to perfection. Whether you're brewing at home or enjoying a cup in our café, you can taste the dedication and expertise in every sip.

Our mission is simple—creating the best quality coffee possible. We source the finest beans from around the world and roast them to perfection, delivering a coffee experience that is second to none. Our commitment to excellence drives us to continually refine our techniques and push the boundaries of what's possible in coffee.

Looking Ahead

Puente's vision extends beyond transactions, forging direct relationships with farmers and embodying vertical integration within the supply chain. Through partnerships, we source the finest beans, amplify farmers' voices, and advocate for equitable returns. By supporting ethical practices and fair trade, we ensure that our coffee not only tastes good but also does good.

As we look to the future, our ambitions extend to becoming an importer, sourcing green coffee directly from Central America. By forging direct relationships with farmers, we can ensure ethical practices, fair trade, and the highest quality beans. This not only supports the local communities but also allows us to bring you an even fresher and more distinctive coffee experience.

Together, Kevin and Patrick embody the tradition, innovation, and labor of love behind each cup. Through Puente, we bridge the gap between producers and consumers, creating a seamless connection that honors heritage while delivering exceptional coffee experiences. Our name, 'Puente,' meaning 'bridge' in Spanish, reflects our commitment to linking the rich history of coffee cultivation with the art of modern brewing. Join us on this journey, one cup at a time, as we unite coffee growers and coffee lovers through a shared passion and dedication.
