Our Story

For us, coffee isn't just what you drink to get you going in the morning. It's part of a worldwide story.

Tug Hill Artisan Roasters was launched with a vision to bring Direct Trade Coffee to the Tug Hill Region. A natural fit for Northern New York, where agriculture forms the backbone of a vibrant farm culture that can appreciate growers' labor in the Southern Hemisphere, where our coffees are sourced.

Scott and Vanessa Gilbert are a husband and wife partnership with a team dedicated to purveying specialty coffees worldwide and roasting them in small batches allowing an appreciation for unique fresh flavors and aromatics.

We are excited to be characters in this story, supporting ethical sourcing, building community, and sharing our passion with those around us.

Thank you for your continued support!

"Finca El Jardin was acquired by Eusebio del Cid more than 100 years ago, today it is managed by the third and fourth generation of the del Cid family. We are committed to produce only high quality specialty coffees. Finca El Jardin is officially located in the Fraijanes Plateau region, close to Pacaya Volcano, which is constantly fertilizing our land with ashes rich in minerals. The soil is volcanic which creates a distinctive body to the cup. The altitude is from 1490 to 1680masl, it has an average temperature of 23C (73.4°F) and annual rainfall of 1,550mm. The harvest period is between December and March. The main varieties are Bourbon and Catuai, we also have Pache, Caturra, Anacafe 14 and Pacamara. Furthermore, the entire coffee plantation is under shade."
