Posted October 17th, 2013 by elizabeth with Comments Off on Who we are


Beanpeace Roastery is a small batch artisan coffee roaster providing the freshest roasted beans to individuals and select retail establishments in the Durham area. 

Our business is designed to provide a small number of local businesses with artisan roasted fair trade organic certified coffee beans.

It is not our intention to provide the most coffee in the area, but the highest quality FTO coffee to individuals and establishments who demonstrate the shared values by purchasing goods and services locally as possible from businesses committed to protecting the environment and communities that provide such products.

We are committed to donating a portion of their profits to non-profit organizations currently working within those communities. Our mission is to balance the needs of customers, the environment, and the coffee growers.

Benefits of Fairly Traded Organic Coffee

Guatemalan Heuheutenango

Organic farms do not consume or release synthetic pesticides into the environment—many that have the potential to harm soil, water and local wildlife. Organic farms are better than conventional farms at sustaining diverse ecosystems, such as plants, insects, and area wildlife. When calculated per unit area, organic farms use less energy and produce less waste.

Trade is based on seven principles as quoted by the Fair Trade Federation (FTF):

    •                Fair wages

    •                Cooperative workplaces

    •                Consumer education

    •                Environmental sustainability

    •                Financial and technical support

    •                Respect for cultural identity

    •                Public accountability

  • Our Business

    Beanpeace Roastery is a small-batch coffee roaster. We focus our business solely on the freshest, Organic Fair Trade coffee you can find anywhere. We strive to purchase raw coffee beans that are grown and harvested by those who work towards a collective stewardship of the earth.

    We’re coffee roasters and are not the best resource for equipment purchase, rental, or maintenance. We are concerned only with the quality of your choices of beans, blends, and roasts. Custom blending is always an option for our wholesale clients and we will help you find your preferred flavor and roast.

    We roast all our coffee to order and ship your coffee within 48 hours (2 weekdays) of your order. Requests are treated as if they were our emergencies, and we will do everything we can to get you the freshest coffee experience, when you need it, weekends or otherwise.

  • Looking for exceptional quality?

    Beanpeace Roastery purchases and roasts only coffee that is certified organic and fairly traded. We select high grown Arabica coffee beans from around the world and roast daily in small batches to ensure the taste of the coffee is truly characteristic of the bean cultivation practices of the regions. Large automatic roasters often flatten these characteristics creating an unexceptional flavor. We do not maintain an inventory of roasted beans to ensure you are receiving the freshest possible coffee for your brewing pleasure.
