roasted deep in the heart of blue ridge mountains

Our recipe for the freshest and most delicious cup of coffee? Ethically sourced, single-origin coffees, carefully crafted in small batches and always delivered fresh” -Matt King, Blue Ridge Bootleg Coffee.

We're mindful of where our coffees come from and always look for labels like "Fair trade" and "Organic" certifications, which follow a strict set of rules that impact the environment and farmers' living conditions. Transparency from our sources helps ensure that the farmers are fairly paid and that the farms are maintained sustainably.

our belief
Single-origin coffee has the most original and unaltered flavor profile, while a coffee blend combines the elements of various beans. As a result, single origins tend to have an exotic taste and are bolder and more robust, while a coffee blend balances it out with different beans that complement each other.

FUDAM - LaRain Forest Alliance- Unión - Nariño - Castillo & Colombia


Fundación Agraria y Ambiental Para el Desarrollo Sostentible (FUDAM) is a 300-member association of organic-certified (and Rainforest Alliance–certified) growers that was founded in the year 2000 by just seven producers who shared a vision of sustainable agriculture as well as environmental protection and development. This group of smallholders lives in and around the small municipality of La Unión in Nariño, where the terrain differs greatly from in other coffee-growing areas like Cauca: Instead of walking up from the town to the farms, as elsewhere, here the towns are at such high elevation that the farms are typically lower elevation, surrounded by high peaks and rough road.

FUDAM's membership believes firmly in the principles of sustainability that drove them to band together in the first place. When asked recently why the group continues to farm organically despite mounting pressure to rely on chemical inputs, the association’s leadership explained, “This is just how we live, these are our values and our way of life.”

The farmers pick their coffee during the day and depulp it in the afternoon, typically fermenting the lots for 16–24 hours dry. The coffees are generally washed two or three times before being dried either in small "casa elbas," mechanical dryers, or parabolic dryers. The mechanical drying takes between 25–40 hours, while the other drying structures can take up to 15 days.


The level of craft and passion makes this coffee unique. We are proud to carry Blue Ridge Bootleg Coffee at our restaurant and make every experience perfect.

To me it was literally “just right” … nice rich dark taste and aroma without the acidic taste. If there was a Goldilocks zone for coffee, I’d say you found it!

I’ve found Blue Ridge Bootleg to be incredibly smooth and flavorful, without the bitterness or acidic flavors. The aroma it produces when brewed gets me right out of bed!

A must try for coffee lovers Blue Ridge Bootleg’s Popskull Pitch Beans has a smooth, rich taste without the acidity. It’s darker but bold enough to wake you up in the morning! I threw all my other coffee beans away; nothing I’ve tried comes close!

Like music (and booze), coffee is equal parts art and craft. Hard to quantify the exact proportions that will hit the sweet spot, but you know it when you find it. Not at all surprising that a guy with the heritage and music background of Matt King has landed on something this good. There are no accidents, and the results speak for themselves.
