"We try to incorporate environmental and social considerations in to our decision making processes – whether it be using compostable 5 lb. coffee bags and tea sachet material; selling our teas and some coffees in reusable tins; offering organic, Fair Trade, and Direct Trade coffees and teas." The Vermont Artisan Coffee and Tea Company also likes to support local businesses and vendors, "so often we will make purchasing decisions that create the smallest footprint environmentally."
Mané and his wife Holly own and run their business believing in “Buy Fresh. Buy Local!” producing freshly roasted coffee in small batches. They enjoy creating relationships with the local community, and "our plan is to build a new 12,000 sq. ft. facility in Waterbury this coming year which incorporates the Coffee Lab, Vermont Artisan Coffee Roastery, CLI’s School of Coffee classrooms, and a Café."
