The story of Kingdom Bean Coffee originates among the misty mountain peaks of Southeast Asia in 2006, when the first Arabica coffee trees were delivered to impoverished upland farmers and former growers of opium. Coffee cultivation provided these farmers with a legal and sustainable cash crop, assisting hundreds of families to begin the climb out of poverty.

In 2018 Kingdom Bean Coffee Roastery was established in Louisville, Kentucky, to source high-quality Arabica beans from this first ethical initiative and other social enterprises in Southeast Asia and around the world. Kingdom Bean Coffee Roastery brings decades of experience and expertise from all phases of coffee production together to roast these special beans fresh for all who love good works and great coffee.
