George Howell Coffee, Acton, Massachusetts, USA

A true giant, it’s George Howell’s shoulders that everyone else is standing on. Since founding The Coffee Connection in 1975, he has been an innovator in every way – promoting the concept of ‘single origin’ and ‘single estate’ coffees, roasting with a ‘light touch’ to highlight individual characteristics in each coffee, printing ‘roasted on’ dates on bags of coffee for freshness, shipping green coffee in airtight bags, working with others to found the Cup of Excellence competition.

With his latest coffee company, Mr Howell has implemented an innovative idea around storage of green coffee once it reaches his Massachusetts warehouse. Recognising the quickly deteriorating quality of coffee, he has invented a system for preserving ‘vintages’ of great coffees much like a quality wine cellar. Once a special and rare coffee is chosen and acquired, it is repackaged and stored under special conditions; a practice employed nowhere else in the coffee world.

Look for his rotating Limited Roasts at our outlets, and get them while they last.
