The scent of something good
From that first heady aroma as it begins to brew, you know a cup of Fidalgo Bay is bound to be a satisfying cup of coffee. But the satisfaction runs deeper than taste alone.
Since its founding in 1992, Fidalgo Bay has aimed not just to be a great, local coffee roaster, but to be a good corporate citizen. The evidence lies in Fidalgo's multi-faceted commitments to the environment, community and its farmers.
Environment: Fidalgo offers free composting with each delivery, is a certified organic roaster, supports Skagitonians to Preserve Farmland and helps save habitat for migratory birds as a charter member of the Northwest Shade Coffee Campaign.
Community: Fidalgo's a strong support of its neighbors, including the Island Hospital Foundation, the Friendship House homeless shelter and food bank in Mount Vernon, the Habitat for Humanity Skagit Women Build project, and many more groups.
Farmers: Fidalgo buys Fair Trade coffee whenever possible. When it's not, Fidalgo supports small coffee farms and pays well above the world market average price per pound for Arabica beans. Fidalgo also uses only high-altitude grown coffee, which is more sustainable, and visits coffee farms annually to establish direct relationships with growers.
So much more than a cup of coffee, Fidalgo is the whole package.
