FROM FARM TO CUP....
Source is important to us. Our coffees come to us from all over the world with exciting, varying flavor profiles. We buy coffee from around the world and from growers whom we’ve been doing business with for over 10 years. We only buy mid-crop, 100 percent Arabica beans because of the tremendous flavor.
Other coffee providers, especially the big chains, will blend Arabica with highly-caffeinated and flavor-deficient Robusta beans. Their method lowers cost as well as quality. Mid-crop coffee is picked in the middle of the growing season, ensuring the beans are not over or under-ripe.
We’re extremely proud of all of our coffees and happy to offer many varieties of fair-trade coffees as well as organically grown coffees. We designate our Fair Trade Certified coffees with an FT following their name. Fair Trade Certified means the coffee is purchased at a fair and decent wage from local farmers.

Proud members of our Community. The Armeno Coffee Roasters building is located in a historic mill on Smith Pond in Northborough, MA. We live and work in a small New England town, but we work to extend our reach worldwide. It’s critical to us to be active members of the local and global community. Armeno donates more than a thousand pounds of coffee each year to Central Massachusetts food banks. We also offer fresh-brewed coffee at charity fundraisers across New England. We have served our coffee at Cooking for a Cause in Worcester and the annual East End House fundraiser for the past twelve years.
