Our Philosophy

The Seven Pillars of Seventh Coffee

Creativity is in our bones, in our blood…and in our beans. We come up with innovative coffee blends that turn casual sippers into coffee enthusiasts. We wholeheartedly believe in providing a full experience, not just a full cup of coffee.

Service and Support are what set us apart. Every bean is prepared with a smile, and we are always available to help our customers.

Whether you are new to craft coffee or are well “roasted”, we are here for your caffeination education. Have questions? We have answers.

We genuinely care about the coffee we brew and your experience with it, from first roast to last sip.

Being socially responsible is at our core. We are active within our community and support causes that are close to our hearts.

Transparency matters. We keep you in the know about where we source, how we roast, the causes we support…and everything in between.

Filling every bag with quality product is what we do. From single bean to coffee carafe and finally into your cup, our coffee will always be smooth, delicious, and just that little bit extra. That’s a promise.

Why Seventh?

This is where our story gets interesting. On August 22nd, 2017, founder Mike Gatopoulos’ son, Jack, was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Williams Syndrome. Williams Syndrome is a genetic condition that is present at birth and can affect anyone. It is characterized by medical problems, including cardiovascular disease, developmental delays, and learning challenges. These often occur side by side with striking verbal abilities, highly social personalities and an affinity for music. It affects around 1 in 10,000 people. Williams syndrome is caused by the spontaneous deletion of 26-28 genes on chromosome 7, hence Seventh Coffee Company. Our logo is missing part of the 7 as a constant reminder to us of what we’re doing, and why we’re here.
Jack prefers his coffee in a plastic cup, with milk,
and chocolate sauce, hold the coffee.

What is a social enterprise?

While most companies strive only for profit, a social enterprise is designed with more than profit in mind. While, yes, we aim to be profitable, we aim to improve upon the world in a meaningful way, both through ethical sourcing, and charitable donations. A portion of every dollar sold is donated directly to the causes we support.  We don't want to tie ourselves down with a specific percentage, or amount we donate, so we say that a minimum amount from every bag sold goes to charity.  We figure after our costs, that is the bare minimum we will be able to donate, but we strive and hope for more.
