Launched in 1997, Coffee Review introduced the first-ever 100-point, wine-style coffee reviews to the specialty coffee industry. Our mission is to help consumers identify and enjoy superior quality coffees and, in the process, recognize and reward the farmers and roasters who invest time, passion, and capital in producing high quality coffee beans.
Our mission remains the same but it takes on a greater urgency as the COVID-19 pandemic is causing challenges and hardships for all of all of our families, businesses, healthcare workers, first responders and, of course, coffee communities locally and around the world.
Coffee Review is part of a virtuous cycle that helps coffee lovers like you as well as everyone in the specialty coffee community who contributes to the production of superior quality coffees. When Coffee Review objectively awards a high score to an exceptional coffee, everyone involved in producing that coffee — from farmer through importer to roaster — gains recognition, and with that recognition come benefits for all.
Coffee Review readers and informed consumers everywhere purchase and enjoy better coffees. Roasters receive recognition for their coffees, often resulting in increased sales. The dedicated farmers who produce these coffees earn higher prices, benefiting both themselves and their communities, and enabling them to produce still better, more distinctive coffees. These superior quality coffees attract more high scores on Coffee Review, netting further recognition and financial benefits for producers and roasters.
The COVID-19 pandemic is straining this virtuous cycle and everyone who benefits from it. When you become a Coffee Review member, you will help us better pursue our mission as well as support our roaster partners and other small roasting companies in these difficult times.
Our membership program provides valuable benefits in return for a modest membership fee. For as little as $5 per month, you will not only help support the specialty coffee community, you will enjoy discounts that can save you hundreds of dollars per year and provide you with exclusive access to top-rated and Top 30 coffees throughout the year.
