Speaking on Business: Park City Coffee Roasters
Park City Coffee Roasters offers certified organic and fair trade coffee in their original blends.
This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.
When you meet with Rob Hibl, co-owner of Park City Coffee Roasters, you’ll quickly get a sense of why this Park City coffee roasting operation is going strong 22 years after he bought it, in partnership with his brother, Ray. They offer high-quality coffees in original blends, and 85 percent of their coffee is certified organic and fair trade. In fact, Park City Coffee Roasters is one of only two certified fair-trade roasters in the state, meaning that the coffee beans they buy are certified at a guaranteed price per pound, so the farmer gets a better wage for their product.
Park City Coffee Roaster purchases beans from 23 countries, and their product is sold through Whole Foods and Associated Food stores statewide. Not to mention Park City Coffee Roaster is the exclusive coffee provider for Intermountain Healthcare, supplying for all their hospitals, surgical centers and barista bars, and they signed another contract last November.
Because of the “Me Too” movement from a couple years ago, Park City Coffee Roaster is working with one of their suppliers, called The Chicks Company, to create opportunities for female coffee growers in Rawanda, Peru and El Salvador. In their Park City store you’ll find blends like Skier Chick, Cycling Chick and Runner Chick sourced from these growers.
