ABOUT SQUARE ONE COFFEE
Square One Coffee is an award-winning micro-roaster based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, with retail locations in Lancaster and Philadelphia. We're a small, family-owned business, and we've been roasting and serving some of the highest quality coffee in the world for over a decade.
We believe that people matter, so we do our best to respect every person involved in the process of getting coffee from the seed to your cup—from the farmers, to our importers, to our roasters, to our baristas, and to our customers.
At the farm level:
We pay premium prices for coffee (well above fair trade) and build long-term relationships as much as possible.
At the company level:
Caring about people also means creating a safe, inclusive working environment for our staff, where they can earn a fair wage with opportunities to learn and grow in their craft.
At the customer level:
Customers at our retail shops in Lancaster and Philadelphia are treated to hand-brewed coffee, espresso drinks, single origin espressos, and signature seasonal espresso cocktails. When it comes to our partnerships with other businesses, we proudly offer comprehensive barista training and technical service to ensure that our wholesale partners are successful and making their customers happy too.
Put simply: We are passionate about coffee, and we believe that people matter.
Our passion for coffee and our love of people drive us to continually improve our products and our methods. Our highly skilled staff boasts several Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) Certified Lead Instructors, several Barista Guild of America (BGA) Certified Baristas, and a Licensed Q-Grader.
We love learning and honing our craft, and we're grateful for our customers who make it possible for us to do what we love.
(If that's you, thank you!)
