First landing in Charlottesville via Seattle in 1993, Joseph and William came to town with a coffee cart and a dream. Twenty-six years later, the brothers are proud to serve only organic coffee and own and operate Brothers Coffee, their CCOF certified organic roastery in Nelson County, Virginia.
Beginning as Higher Grounds on The Corner at the University of Virginia, the brothers grew that original cart into multiple retail locations within the UVA Medical Center. In 2007, the brothers decided to source and small-batch roast organic coffee as a supplier to Higher Grounds as well as to offer wholesale coffee to like-minded businesses and restaurants in the region.
Since the beginning, their mission has always been: quality, community, and sustainability. Trager Brothers Coffee is committed to bringing you the highest quality, freshest, environmentally sound coffee on the market. They exclusively source beans from farms that are committed to environmental sustainability and fair wages for farmers and their families.
