About Us

Uprooted Coffee is inspired by our family's roots in Southeast Asia. During our travels in Laos and Thailand, we got to enjoy some truly great coffee. We're excited to bring you specialty-grade coffee from Southeast Asia!

As refugees and children of immigrants, we know what it's like to be uprooted from our homelands. Similar to the coffee plant, which is now grown all over the world and has thrived in new environments, refugees and immigrants create community wherever they set roots. We care about the people that make up a community. Uprooted is committed to supporting causes that impact the refugee and immigrant experience.

Our mission is to inspire people to be curious about and love specialty coffee from Southeast Asia.

From our family to yours,

Saengmany, Gao, K, & Z
