World Garden Coffee

With only a few coffee roasters in North West Arkansas, World Garden is raising the bar on what a great coffee establishment should be. Not only do they roast 100% organic Arabica beans but they support the coffee farmers by engaging in Fairtrade. Their beans come from 18 origins and results in many different flavors. If you think you are a coffee connoisseur then try to identify them at one of their competitions. Yes, that sounds like a lot of fun to me.

World Garden sends a portion of their revenue to feed the children around the world that need help. A portion of their coffee sales also go to improve the coffee farmer’s quality of life. They also provide a portion of their dessert sales to support local abuse/neglect shelters.

Knowing that you have such great owners that do the right thing makes you feel good in ordering from them. Their web site is

And their address is

World Garden

Their coffee is fantastic. They know exactly how to roast the beans to bring out the oils giving it the full rich body taste you would expect in an espresso but with no burnt after taste. I have prepared the coffee many ways and it has not disappointed me yet. I prefer a dark deep espresso prepared Italian style on the stove and it is fantastic. Cuban style is also perfect with great foam. First thing this morning, the French press got me going. Yes, I drink a lot of coffee.

The coffee has a clean brisk taste with a slight aroma of chocolate. I can tell the caffeine is not too strong which is what you would expect of a dark roast. One of the ways you can tell it is a good organic coffee is the lack of an after taste that can ruin a good cup of coffee. This coffee is good—very good.

So, for great coffee and food the trip to this coffee shop is worth it. While I saw nothing on the site about shipping coffee, I think if you call the owner something can be worked out.
