PT'S Coffee background

PT'S Coffee

Our Story

PT’s was born in 1993 in Topeka, Kansas, out of Jeff Taylor and Fred Polzin’s simple desire for an excellent cup of coffee. Four years and two retail locations later, PT's began buying green coffee, roasting, and traveling to the origin, forging the Direct Trade partnerships that have made us a leader in the specialty coffee industry. A simple question guides our judgments and motivates us every day: Is our coffee the best it can be?

Over nearly 30 years we’ve learned that it’s more important to succeed on our own terms than on anyone else’s. And when we focus on superior quality, from seed to cup, our business thrives.


Our Coffee

Nearly 80% of the coffee we produce is acquired through our Direct Trade program. Exceptional coffee depends upon great partnerships, and our partners are selected for more than just their harvests—they are socially responsible and environmentally conscious. PT’s buys only the top 1% of coffee in the world, and we feel that an artisan coffee farmer who grows award-winning coffee should be given all of the credit. Recognition develops dedication to craftsmanship, skill in production, and passion for harvest quality.

We roast dozens of single-origin specialty coffees and signature blends for our retail locations, wholesale clients, and online customers around the world. We were named Roaster of the Year by Roast Magazine in 2009 and are among the leading roasters reviewed by premier industry resource Coffee Review, with 40 scores of 94 and above and multiple finishes in the Top 30 Coffees of the year. 


We remain a group of explorers committed to sourcing, roasting, and drinking the best coffees in the world. We warmly invite you to join us on this journey!
