Bags of Entrepreneur CoffeeThe coffee and its supporting promotional items have been sourced from local businesses, and all profits will be reinvested in local small business development.

The label’s signature blend is roasted by St. Lawrence Valley Roasters, owned by Tim Gardner of Lisbon, N.Y., using beans that are sourced from Fair Trade, USDA Organic and Shade Grown certified suppliers. Entrepreneur Coffee takes an environmentally sustainable approach in their day-to-day business.
