Onyx Coffee Lab
Onyx Coffee Lab is the dream come true of Jon & Andrea Allen. Years ago they started telling each other to “Never Settle for Good Enough.” It felt perhaps like a piece of branding or a slogan, but over the years this mentality has developed into a mantra of its own that permeates every thing that they do at Onyx.
It starts with traveling to find the best coffees. This plays out across different countries, continents, and terrains. They maintain high standards for how our coffees score and taste. When the coffees land at our HQ, they roast and cup and make minute adjustments to the roast profiles until they make the coffees shine in the cup.
They roast and ship coffees every weekday utilizing solar energy from the roof of their facility. A sample is taken from each roast and cupped for quality, to track the characteristics of the coffees, and to give feedback on roast profiles. This ensures that every coffee that goes out not only meets our standards but is truly remarkable.
This data is available to view on their website. Each coffee they have is accompanied by its pricing and trade data, meaning you can see what they paid for it, what it scored at, who they bought it from, and other details right on its product page. This is not only something they are very proud of but is also a practice that is rare to see in coffee. They want you to see exactly how this coffee came to be one of their offerings.
Their producing partners innovate and work hard to grow some of the most amazing coffees, and we want their name to be listed and recognized.They want their cafes to be full of people from their community working, reading, and having conversations. Whether you’re a coffee professional or you’re just getting started, you can trust that excellence and hospitality run through the core of every part of Onyx. Join the pilgrimage.
