Black Ink Coffee Company is a fair trade, single origin, small batch coffee roastery located in Maine, US. Our story actually began as just a name I had drawn into the sand while I was deployed.
As I spent most of my free time thinking about what it was that I wanted to do when I returned home, the foundation for a dream began to develop. A dream I knew I had to pursue when I returned home.
One of the reasons I decided to pursue this is because I was inspired by the people in the industry. You probably wouldn’t know this, but coffee companies send free coffee to US soldiers all of the time. For me, that little taste of home made all of the difference. That’s when I decided that I wanted to someday return the favor.
