Founded in 2008, Kolika is a locally owned and operated company focused on partnering with the businesses in the Reno-Tahoe area to bring specialty coffee to the local community.
Our mission is to consistently provide high quality roasted coffee at a fair price. We only purchase specialty grade Arabica coffee beans from small farms and private estates in East Africa, Latin America and the Pacific. We concentrate on beans grown at high altitude. The cooler temperatures at the higher altitudes cause the bean to develop more slowly, which results in a more concentrated flavor.
We offer Organic, Fair Trade Certified, bird-friendly and shade grown beans. We take pride in the quality of the coffee we offer, and all coffee is roasted to order to ensure freshness in every bag.
Kolika Coffee also operates Donation grounds a, non-profit business with the goal to give back to the community and support other non-profit efforts. A significant portion of the proceeds earned by the Kolika Foundation are donated to the ALS Foundation, a cause that has personal significance.
