Mount Hagen Coffee Sticks

Mount Hagen
Organic Fair Trade Single Serve Coffee Sticks

NEW! We asked our in-house instant coffee lover to give us his take on these new instant coffee sticks, and he said he would never go back to his old brand again. Instant can be delightful when done right, and this blend comes from the first instant coffee producer in the world to be organic and fair-trade certified.

Every granule is planted, cultivated, harvested, processed, and packaged by workers being paid fairly and respectably.

Big Gear Coffee Roasters
Montpelier, Vermont
Whole Bean Coffee

Locally roasted in Montpelier, Vermont, with the highest-quality fair-trade beans ethically sourced from all over the world. Looking for something unique to serve your interloping family members this holiday season?

Wake them up with a big cup of Full-Suspension or Hard Trail. Full-Suspension is a beast of a roast, Big Gear's darkest, with smoky, chocolate, and brown spice flavor notes. Hard Trail is a medium roast made with organic beans from the Sierra Nevada region of Columbia.

The beans are then aged in gin barrels (gin barrels, people!), leaving flavor notes of gin, melon, dried fruit, and chocolate. One of the most unique coffee experiences you'll find. Woot!
