Our Journey

Our Journey...

started years ago, as our founder Thomas, hitch-hiked all the way from Massachusetts to Nicaragua and visited a local coffee farm. Over the course of 3 months, he worked on that very same coffee field and fell in love with everything coffee. Thus began the origins of Nomadic Coffee...


Our Organic Coffee

Nomadic is certified by CCOF as meeting the National Organic Standards established by the USDA National Organic Program (NOP). Nomadic also holds certifications from Fair-Trade USA. We roast weekly at Bay Area CoRoasters in West Berkeley, California and sell coffee to stores, cafes and restaurants throughout the Bay Area and beyond. We are committed to searching the earth for the most flavorful and robust beans.

Our Roaster

Nomadic Coffee is sampled, cupped and roasted in our state-of-the-art facility in Oakland, California. We carry multiple certifications including state and local health certifications as well as HAACP and industry standard SQF certifications.

Responsibly—Traded Organic Coffee

Sourcing green organic coffee is at the core of what we do. Our process is essential and transparent to ensure with select the very best option for our roasts. Processing methods, varieties, growing altitudes, climate, soil and farm conditions are a few of the many factors that shape and determine a coffee’s overall quality.

We work directly with passionate coffee importers who assist us in getting the very best organic coffee for you. Every week we sample roast and cup a variety of selected bean origins to ensure quality control. This process is essential in order to have first hand account of the beans that we roast and ultimately provide to you… our friends and family.

Every Bean Counts

We actively give our coffee proceeds back into the commonwealth by funding support to critical issues relevant to the bay area and beyond. We provide monthly support to these and other organizations: 

Critical Resistance

Ella Baker Center for Human Rights

Coalition on Homelessness
