Seattle, WA


Kuma, meaning 'bear' in Japanese, was inspired and named after both the founder's bear-like shaggy dog and a visit to Japan. It began in 2008 as a garage roastery in Seattle, then quickly grew to nationwide recognition. Kuma's continued keeping its operation intentionally small, in order to remain fully focused on quality and deliciousness. Kuma purchases the majority of their seasonal coffees direct from origin, paying a premium to farmers well above the commodity or fair trade thresholds.
