Our Coffee

Coffee is all about the beans! We proudly source the highest quality specialty coffee from estates and cooperatives across the globe. We support our farmers through a commitment to fair trade practices and, in doing so, we guarantee both the highest quality bean for our products and a better life for the farmers. 

Roasting

Commonwealth Coffee is micro-roasted in Framingham, Massachusetts at Hogan Brothers Coffee Roasters, a specialty coffee roaster with over 20 years experience. By exclusively micro-roasting our coffee, we ensure that each roast profile is consistent and perfect for the best flavored coffee. 

The Cold-Brew Process

Whereas hot coffee is traditionally brewed by using boiling water to extract coffee from the grounds, we microbrew our beans in cold, filtered water for 24 hours. This process extracts more of the natural coffee flavor, while leaving behind 67% of the acidity. The result is a naturally sweet, smooth, and more flavorful iced coffee that boasts about 1.5x the caffeine and requires no additional additives. Thus, our cold brew is a healthier, more flavorful, ready to drink coffee perfect for any time of day..

Our Boston-based cold brewery is our laboratory, and we are always experimenting with new beans, flavors, and processes. Stay tuned for our latest offerings!
