A Little About Us.....
Vermont Artisan Coffee & Tea provides artisan roasted coffees and exotic teas to retail establishments, food service markets, and to customers throughout Vermont, the North East, and via the Web. The company is owned and operated by Mané Alves, a native of Lisbon, Portugal, who has worked in the specialty coffee industry for the past 20+ years, and prior to that, in the wine industry in California. Mané (pronounced “Meh-nay”) travels extensively every year to coffee producing countries throughout Central America, South America and Asia where he speaks and teaches seminars on coffee production and quality standards. With most trips, Mané cups coffees from the latest harvests and discovers unique lots of green coffees that he purchases and has shipped back to Vermont to roast.
