The owners, Larry and Kathy Gifford, purchased Ozark Mountain Coffee Co. in April 2006. Larry and Kathy, along with their son Bryan spent many hours learning all of the methods and procedures to continue Ozark Mountain Coffee Co.'s tradition of fine, gourmet coffee.
Roasting thousands of pounds of coffee yearly, Ozark Mountain Coffee Co. operates primarily as a wholesaler to coffee houses, restaurants and specialty stores. With the lauch of the website, our coffees and teas are available for everyone to enjoy.
Our Coffee Roasting Process
At the Ozark Mountain Coffee Co. we believe in using the highest quality beans possible. That is why we start by using the finest Arabica coffee beans from around the world. These beans are unique because they are grown at higher elevations than the more commonly found Robusta bean, which gives the Arabica beans a smooth, rich flavor. The beans are still green when they arrive in the Ozarks. We then roast the coffee in small quantities of 26 pounds or less to ensure that it is never exposed to direct flame allowing us to preserve the natural oils. Our hands on method gives us the opportunity to smell, listen and view the beans throughout the roasting process to ensure perfection. Finally we air-cool beans to preserve freshness.
