Steeped Coffee, a certified B Corp and Benefit Corporation, is partnering with Oakland, California-based Mr. Espresso to bring its Italian oak wood fire-roasted coffee to single-serve coffee fans.
Brewed similarly to tea, Steeped Coffee’s brewing method delivers the flavor of Mr. Espresso’s coffee with the convenience of single-serve, with no pods, no plugs or machines required.
Mr. Espresso, a multi-generational family-run roaster, was founded in San Francisco in 1978 by Carlo Di Ruocco, after immigrating from Salerno, Italy. His Italian-inspired espresso and wood fire-roasted coffee gained a cult-level following in the California restaurant scene.
Today, Mr. Espresso’s specialty coffee is roasted by slow burning, oak wood logs that are hand-selected and sustainably-sourced. Recognized as one of the top roasters in the U.S., the company was selected by Roast Magazine as a finalist for 2022 Roaster of the Year.
“Mr. Espresso is the only macro roaster in the U.S. exclusively using oak wood fire to roast our beans,” said Luigi Di Ruocco, co-owner and VP.
“Our slow roasting method uniquely preserves oil within the bean for an exquisite specialty coffee experience with more crema, fuller flavor and a smoother finish.”
Together, Steeped and Mr. Espresso are partnering to bring the roaster’s best-selling blends – Organic Golden Gate House Blend and Organic Seven Bridges Blend – to single-serve coffee enthusiasts.
Steeped shares Mr. Espresso’s oak wood roasted, ground coffee in pre-portioned brew bags that are triple nitro-sealed for freshness. Steeped Coffee’s brewing method has been recognized by industry experts, recently winning “Best New Product” by the Specialty Coffee Expo.
“Steeped doesn’t take its barista-approved standards lightly, and we’ve worked closely with industry experts to validate every aspect of the Steeped brewing method. Most importantly, the method delivers premium taste, bringing the most authentic specialty coffee experience to single-serve coffee lovers,” said Josh Wilbur, founder and CEO.
“We are proud to partner with Mr. Espresso to bring their oak wood fire-roasted coffee to more consumers.”
