Cosmic Coffee Company’s Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a brick-and-mortar location?

Yes, we do but our roasting facility has been closed to the public since March 2020. We offer a curb side pickup for fresh beans and Dark Matter cold brew if you don’t want to order online or come to the farmers market but you must contact us to make arrangements. Call us (408)477-2687.

What is hand crafted water?

Glad you asked, Carlos spent many years perfecting his water formula! He starts by purifying the water with a triple filter system so it’s like distilled water. Then he adds in his proprietary blend of minerals to create our own electrolyte mineral infused water.

What kind of roaster do you use?

Diedrich IR5 and Diedrich IR2.5 manual roasters. Carlos started roasting on the IR2.5 in 2009. This roaster traveled with us when we relocated to California from Hawai’i in 2012. That’s love 🙂

What’s so special about Cosmic Coffee?

Really, we get asked this a lot. We think Cosmic Coffee is special because it has been a labor of love and passion for over 12 years. It’s the attention to detail and authenticity we demand of ourselves that shows through in every product we offer. The majority of our coffees are organic, shade grown, bird friendly, rain forest alliance and direct trade. We roast specialty grade coffees, pay farmers a living wage, work with farmers who are good stewards of the land, use the latest generation plant based renewable resource biodegradable coffee bag packaging, give the spent grinds to local gardeners, recycle/sterilize and reuse the glass bottles and seriously bust our ass every day to bring you exceptional freshly roasted coffees. We think that’s pretty special.

Why do some coffee bags have a white label and others have fancy colors?

The white labels are coffees that we only have a small amount of, generally, only a couple hundred pounds and then they’re gone. The ones with a fancy color label are coffees that we have year round.
