Nice to meet you
Thank you for visiting Bird & Bear Coffee! After 15 years in the coffee industry, we started Bird & Bear, because we believe that fresh roasted premium coffee can be an everyday treat, and we hope you'll let us send you a pound or two to enjoy as a part of your daily routine.
One of our favorite things is when we find ways to upgrade small things that we interact with everyday, and we hope that our coffee can be that for you. We know beyond just taste, you're looking to support environmental, social and equitable impact. That mission for me, Dan Streetman, is informed by 10 years of traveling the world to visit coffee farms, and not only to find the best tasting coffees, but understand how to ensure sustainable and equitable practices for everyone involved. I'm excited to be able to bring coffee from farms and friends that I have known and worked with through this project, and we look forward to sharing those stories with you.
Please join us in appreciating the special things that are brewing.
Feel free to contact us at BirdandBearCoffee@gmail.com or 415-297-6834
Like you, we are always looking for the best. The best for us means great tasting, coffee in this case, without compromising the environment, workers, or quality.
That's why at Bird & Bear, we're working with coffee farms and producer that Dan has visited and built relationships with over the past 10 years. These producers have demonstrated through their transparency, and commitment that they are dedicated to not only producing great coffee, but protecting the environment and any farm employees as well. We pay them above market prices because sustainable prices are what allow them to invest in good agricultural practices, and pay workers fairly.
As we grow, we're committed to not only continuing our commitment to ethical treatment of people and the environment, but to increase our investment in sustainability.
Roasting coffee is a dynamic process that has the potential to unlock amazing flavors and aromas. We’ve spent 15 years learning about how to approach each coffee to unlock it’s unique flavor potential. Once coffee is roasted, the aroma can escape, so we ship you coffee the day it is roasted, and sealed in airtight bags to preserve all the flavor.
Whatever your preference, we’ve got the coffee for you. From crisp and snappy light roast, to heavy and smokey dark roast. Got questions? Hit that “Message Us” button, and we’ll be happy to talk you through it.
Brewing your coffee is the only part we can’t do for you. We will try to make it as easy as possible though! Generally you should use 2 tbsp of ground coffee for every cup of water. If you want to get more precise use a scale, and use 15g of coffee per cup of water.
Like your coffee strong or weak? Feel free to adjust your measurements. The normal range for coffee brewing can be anywhere from 15g/6oz of water to 15g/10oz of water.
Also, we’ll tell you that it is best to grind just before brewing. Don’t have a grinder? Make sure that you get the correct grind setting for your coffee maker. If you’re not sure, hit the “Message Us” button in the bottom right, and we’ll be glad to walk you through it.
Lastly, brew fresh, we recommend that you only brew as much coffee as you intend to drink in the next hour. Of course that helps keep the coffee hot, but it also means that the flavor doesn’t get cooked in your pot.
