Caribou Coffee was started by husband and wife team Jon and Kim Puckett in Edina, Minnesota in 1992. The philosophy behind the brand is simple; great products, environmentally, socially and responsibly sourced. Their foremost focus is the quality, flavor and range of their beverages.
Their beans are all specially selected by a company ‘Roastmaster’ and the story begins in the fields with the everyday farmer. These employees visit various exotic locations searching for the perfect quality and flavor. They then create signature blends by adjusting the coffee’s roasting profile. The chain insist that this is what sets them apart for their competitors and why their coffee is the best; they understand the importance of the drink and how integral it is in day to day life.
The company is in partnership with the Rainforest Alliance to ensure that from purchase to your cup they do all they can to ensure that fair practices are upheld; all of their beans are 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified. Through this enterprise, they’re able to ensure that these transactions are beneficial for: the farmers, their families and communities as well as the environment.
