Finca Dos Marias (“the farm of the two Marias”), is where Mireya Jones’ grandmother and great grandmother began producing one of the highest-grade coffees in the highlands of Guatemala, in the mid-1870s. The farm is recognized by leading specialty coffee organizations for its commitment to the environment and to the welfare of its worker community, including education and medical care. Though most of the farm’s coffee is sold to other sustainability-minded coffee roasters around the country, Jones Coffee Roasters keeps some of it in the family, at their four locations across South Pasadena and Pasadena.
In 1994, their roastery was established by Chuck and Larry Jones. As the retail/café side of the business grew, so did the need for seating. When the business exceeded the City’s specified seating limit, die-hard customers began bringing in their own “talking chairs” to assure they’d have a place to sit and talk with friends the next time they came in. The Jones Coffee Roasters logo is inspired by this act of community building.
Jones is committed to the traceability of the coffees they roast and to their growers’ sustainable farming practices. The owners believe socially responsible farms consistently produce better coffee, and hope it encourages greater awareness of the vital role we all play in supporting an equitable, sustainable coffee industry.
Jones Coffee actively participates in the local community through service and in-kind donations. Their core values are rooted in each of the organizations they support, and their relationships are deliberate and cherished.
