OUR 3 PILLARS
ABOUT BLUE HOUSE:
Blue House Coffee began in Flagstaff, Arizona in 2012, where we roasted out of the eponymous Blue House. We moved to Tempe, home of Arizona State University, where our goal was to transform empty street corners into social hubs with a 400-pound coffee bicycle.
While at ASU, we secured an Edson Entrepreneurial grant to establish relationships with coffee farmers and create more mobile coffee carts. In 2018, we secured our first café location at the Phoenix Biomedical Campus in Downtown Phoenix. For Blue House, the coffee business is a vehicle to improve our community and connect with others, both next door and around the world.
Coffee is more than a drink it fuels social interconnection and brightens morning rituals. Just like a pedal stroke on our original coffee bicycle, every day we push ourselves in our quest to innovate and create the perfect cup. We are unwavering in the pursuit.
WE VALUE LOCAL
We continue our mission to purchase locally and sustainably. We are from Arizona and Blue House was founded on a mission to enhance our community and collaborate with other businesses with our same values.
We travel to origin and buy many of our coffees directly from farmers, making some of our coffees not available anywhere else on earth. Coffee is a story and getting to know our coffee producers is the first step.
We hand roast our beans and bring their flavors to life. There are over 1500 aromatic or flavor producing compounds in coffee and accentuating these flavors is our main goal in this process.
We create delicious beverages with our coffees which we share with our customers. Using nitrogen pressurization, we were the first coffee company in Arizona to serve cold-brew coffee on tap via kegs. We continue to adapt and innovate in this realm.
WE VALUE THE ENVIRONMENT
As a company, we have made it a priority to become carbon neutral by 2021. We currently offer a completely compostable set of utensils, a roasting facility powered by solar panels, and a 100% electric delivery vehicle.
