Carabello Coffee started in a garage in the fall of 2009 with a philanthropic vision, a hot air popcorn popper and a few pounds of green coffee beans. From there Justin & Emily Carabello have steadily grown their small business as a way to help fund sustainable change in underdeveloped coffee producing nations.
The past nine years have been an exciting journey, growing from a modest part-time home business into a full blown venture. With each small step, God has blessed us in all sorts of surprising ways to allow us to be where we are now. From people helping us buy a coffee roaster and training us to roast for free to becoming friends with one of the top Nicaraguan coffee producers and having customers all over the USA, we could not have imagined a more amazing journey.
We are very excited to see where God this takes this whole thing, and how many people we can help with YOUR coffee dollars!Today our roaster is located in our Roastery and Craft Coffee Bar in historic Newport, KY. Below is a virtual tour of our shop. Carabello Coffee offers you the very best in quality through Fair Trade, organic, and even farm direct and direct relationship coffees. What is farm direct? It is a way for coffee roasters to buy straight from the farmers at a price that is a minimum of 100% higher than Fair Trade pricing, ensuring that farmers are truly paid a price that will allow them to improve their businesses. Real people really grow and process this coffee, not a machine! Then our coffee is roasted and bagged just days before it reaches you. Trust us, you’ll be able to tell the difference fresh makes!
