How We Started

Good Citizen Coffee Co. started in Nashville, TN in 2018 - the core team came together quickly as a response to the blank space in the roasting industry in Middle Tennessee. From there, we built ourselves on transparency and quality coffee. Sourced from sustainable farms, we help keep specialty-grade coffee in your cup without sacrificing nutrient-dense farming lands. We believe in the big impact of seemingly small choices, like deciding which coffee to drink. While we’re not the first Nashville-based roastery out there, we’re proud to be one of the only ones centered around biodiverse farmers.

Our Investment

Sustainability is a core piece of what makes us, us! We work directly with the farmers to give back to the land by planting trees, fruits, and vegetables that invite animals and insects to thrive in their natural habitats. Creating biodiverse soil for generations to come.
