Thank you for coming by. We are open-minded makers of coffees that are both adventurous and approachable, known for our specialty Coffee Infusions and Cold Brews. Based in Colorado, we deliver across the US.
Our mission is to offer fresh, flavorful coffees that are vibrant and sophisticated, while doing right by producers. We source exclusively from women & smallholders, give 1% of sales towards education, and use the highest quality organic raw ingredients– nothing from a spray or pump.
This is how an idea born while living along the Pacific coast of Nicaragua turned into a coffee company.
Hi from the founders.
Now based in Denver, our story begins on the road after leaving our past careers. A change in perspective led to the idea of building something positive from the ground up.
We love everything about coffee, and we’re here to create a company we’d want to work for, and products we’d want to consume ourselves (which we do, in mass quantities).
The trip of a lifetime.
In 2015 we packed-up our life and set out to travel on a shoestring and write a new chapter.
Over the course of nine months, we travelled through Africa, Europe, and made our way to the Pacific coast of Nicaragua. We started buying green coffee from local markets and roasting it on the stove. For two coffee-lovers, it was a dream come true, and ignited a deep interest in learning more about coffee from the source.
Into coffee country.
After months tinkering in our coastal kitchen, we took a trip through Nicaragua’s coffee-producing regions of Esteli, Jinotega, Matagalpa, and Nueva Segovia, meeting with producers, cooperatives, buyers, and exporters. It was an eye-opening experience that solidified our desire to enter the industry.
Equipped with new perspectives and sourcing relationships, we returned to the US and got busy.
Good Trip sets forth.
Fast-forward six months and on October 11, 2016, Good Trip Coffee was born. Two months later, we opened our website and launched our first product line of artisan cold brews, all featuring original artwork by Denver artists Josh Holland and Shannon Bonatakis. By spring 2017, we were selling at local markets & events. In fall 2017, we expanded our offerings beyond cold brew and began championing Coffee Infusions. And today, the journey continues. We’re proud of our products, our values, and our commitment to partnering with communities of women producers & smallholders.
Thank you for joining us.

Coffee producers are the most important link in the chain from seed to cup. Our hope is to bring you closer to these communities, to learn about their craft, and to experience the passion that surrounds their coffees.
