At Buzzbox we are committed to shipping freshly roasted coffee beans straight to your door. Your beans will never sit around gathering dust. Just take a whiff of your next Buzzbox shipment and you’ll know you’re getting the freshest beans possible.
USDA Organic Beans
Our coffee is only chosen from the Top 1% of coffee on the market.
In part this is because all of our coffees are organic, shade-grown, and fairly traded. It’s also because we only use 100% Arabica beans. Many coffee companys cut their coffee blends with cheap Robusta filler beans. Robusta has twice the caffeine, and acidity, and provides a very bitter cup of coffee. Want to know why our coffees are so smooth? Because we only use Arabica beans 100% of the time.
Many people ask why shade grown coffee is important. When you purchase shade grown coffee, you are supporting a sustainable product and helping to keep rainforests intact. Coffee that is grown in the shade is protected from harsh sun rays, and grows at a slower pace. This helps to keep the levels of acidity in the coffee at a minimum and produces beans with a lower caffeine content.
Shade grown coffee allows the true flavor of the coffee to come to the forefront, while the side effects of the acidity and caffeine are minimized, making for a more healthy coffee.
Each coffee tree produces approximately one pound of green coffee beans per year. The cherries from each tree must be handpicked when they are a deep, crimson red. After the seeds are cleaned and dried, they must be hand sorted and graded. Specialty coffee has a rating system with levels of “perfection”.
Buzzbox sources their beans from Camano Island Coffee Roasters because they only select level 1, top grade coffee. That means that out of the 2,000 beans found in each pound of Buzzbox Arabica coffee there are less than 40 imperfect beans. This is the highest standard in the world.
Many leading brands allow up to 200 imperfect beans per pound, and these coffee companies typically over-roast their coffee in order to mask the imperfect taste profile. Of all the coffee in the world, less than 1% of the world’s supply will even make it to the top grade of specialty coffee. That makes Camano Island Coffee some the best coffee in the world.
Fairly Traded Coffee
First – The Beans:
We source our beans from Camano Island Coffee Roasters because they only purchase green, ethical coffee beans that are USDA Certified Organic and Shade-grown. USDA Certified Organic guarantees safety from harmful pesticides and the numerous health and birth defects they inflict on the coffee farmers and their families. Shade-grown coffee guarantees bird habitat, soil preservation, and the protection of the Rain forests – earth’s lungs!
Second – The Price:
By only purchasing ethical coffee that is fairly traded, we partner with you in giving a fair wage for a beautiful product. The difference is in enabling farmers to provide food, clothing, shelter, and en education for their children.
Third – Giving A Hand Up, Not a Hand Out:
BuzzBox partners with World Vision – a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.
Fourth – The Biggest Factor in Generational Change – You:
That’s right, you are the most important component for lasting change. By supporting only ethical coffee that’s Certified Organic, Shade-Grown, and Fairly Traded, you preserve the environment and prevent human poisoning from pesticides.

- "I am an avid coffee drinker and have grown accustomed to the bitter taste of Starbucks and other barista or 'gourmet' coffee blends. I was taken back by the smell of my package of coffee when it arrived. It was like a drug! I couldn't wait to try it out. They even specially ground it for my Keurig. I've ordered future shipments and can't wait for the package to arrive every 6 weeks."Rhonda Hoover - Rick & Bubba Program Subscriber
