Exceptional Coffee

Expertise in Growing Private Brands

Distant Lands Coffee Company provides exceptional quality–from seed to cup. We specialize in custom roasting the very finest coffees for private label grocery and food service clients. We also source premium green coffees direct from origin for specialty coffee roasters, as well as private label brands.

Our roots in specialty coffee run deep. In 1968 our founder, William McAlpin, began growing coffee at Hacienda La Minita, his family farm in Costa Rica. His work in pioneering sustainable coffee production continues to set the industry standard.

Today, in addition to owning and managing farms, we mill, trade, and roast coffee. Because of this vertical integration, we have visibility and control at every step of coffee production and delivery. It is this unique chain of control that allows Distant Lands to provide the best of the world’s specialty coffee to our customers.

Leader in Sustainable Coffee Production

We believe that quality begins with stewardship of the land and the well-being of the people who grow coffee. For over 45 years, Distant Lands has pioneered sustainable coffee growing and processing methods at our farms and mills in Costa Rica and Colombia. Our innovations have helped set global standards for quality coffee production.

Sales, Marketing, and Design Teams Dedicated to Your Success

Distant Lands has helped develop and grow many of North America’s largest private label specialty coffee brands. Our grocery clients’ store brands often achieve #1 or #2 in category sales. From custom roast profiles to state-of-the-art package design, our seasoned sales and marketing team works closely with clients to build profitable brands that keep customers coming back for more.

Let us help you expand your coffee market share–you’ll see your customers express their deep satisfaction with strong loyalty.
