About Us

Imagine one direct relationship that is linked to an entire network of coffee export channels. Communication within this network runs smoothly as wet & dry mills, small grower cooperatives, and large estates work together to produce spectacular specialty coffee. We, at Atlantic Specialty Coffee, are that direct relationship and we represent a progressive approach to coffee sourcing worldwide.

Many are the channels that cooperate to make our company great and your coffee programs successful. Aside from the incredible support given to us by our sister companies at origin – operating in 22 countries worldwide – we also work with independent farms, mills, and exporters. This rare approach to sourcing allows us to meet your exact requirements in terms of cup profile, processing, varietal selection, and the sustainable certifications you need.

The ASCI office is located in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area in Hayward California and was opened in the mid 1990’s. Combined, our coffee team has well over a century’s worth of coffee trading experience and we are happy to share our knowledge in partnership with you & your company.

Aside from top quality coffee, commodity market analysis and hedging assistance, we have extensive backgrounds in a range of sustainable programs. Be it, Organic, Fair Trade, Rain Forest Alliance, or any number of sustainable certifications, we can guide you through the often daunting process to become a sustainably certified coffee roaster.

The ASCI team is actively involved in SCAA Committees & Councils as well as the Roaster’s Guild, Barista guild, PCCA Boards, CQI Councils & “Q” program. We participate in cup of excellence and a number of different origin auctions.
