In 2005, when corporate coffee dominated American culture, Ritual unknowingly started a fun and crazy revolution that would ultimately help launch the new coffee movement. We buy 95% of our beans directly from our producer partners, setting the highest standard in the coffee industry. This ensures we get our hands on the best beans in the world, but more importantly, that our farmers maintain the quality of life they deserve. Now a bona fide San Francisco original, we’ve also earned our iconic status as one of the best coffee roasting companies in the world. Despite our mad-scientist pursuit of the perfect cup, we’re determined to demystify the entire coffee experience. So whether you’re a fancy pants coffee nerd or a complete novice, we’ll always deliver our coffee in the most fun and down-to-earth way we know how. For us, being nice is just as important as making the best coffee.
