I am a coffee Traditionalist. I have been drinking coffee since 2001, but only in the 3 years have become very interested in the specialty coffee industry.

About My Company:
Cultivar Coffee & Tea is located in Dallas, Texas. Pioneered by Jonathan Meadows and Nathan Shelton who appreciate every coffee for what it truly is and are committed to taking whatever steps necessary to highlight the amazing, unique character in every coffee. We are committed to both quality and sustainability, bringing both ideals hand-in-hand; bringing a new level of care, attention to detail and socioeconomic responsibility to the world of coffee.

We source only the best coffee we can get our hands on and believe that our job as coffee roasters is to highlight the sweet spot in every single coffee that we offer. We roast and cup every coffee in celebration of the the hard work that coffee producers have put into their crop year round, respecting the processes that have gone before us and the preparation and consumption of the coffee that will take place once it is in your hands.

Because of the hard work that goes into producing coffee; from origin to roaster, we are committed to educating our customers on properly brewing the coffees that we roast, whether we are supplying a cafe or just the coffee you drink at home.
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
People coming together to enjoy good conversation over a good cup of coffee
