The Story of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters:
In the beautiful mountains of Vermont, where time is measured more by change of seasons than the tick of a clock, and where a faster way of doing things is not always a better way, you will find the home of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters.
At Green Mountain Coffee, we are dedicated to providing the richest aroma and flavor, for the highest quality coffee experience. We travel the globe to purchase the finest coffees, batch roast them to peak flavor, and vacuum package them fresh for your enjoyment.
We take our time-and taking our time has its own reward-perfect coffee. In 1981, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters hung its shingle on the front of a small café in Waitsfield, Vermont. This café roasted coffee on the premises and formed the base of operations for what was to become one of the nation's leading specialty coffee companies.
The demand for high-quality, freshly roasted coffee soon grew beyond the café's walls. Restaurants and inns in the area asked for coffee and equipment. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters was soon in the wholesale business to satisfy these requests. Before long, skiers asked if the café could send Green Mountain Coffee to their homes in New York, Florida, Pennsylvania or Connecticut. This demand was filled by the birth of the company's mail-order business.
