SkyTop Coffee Company is your Specialty Coffee Roaster located in Upstate NY. We source USDA Organic, ethically Fair Traded, and Bird Friendly coffees with fully traceable supply lines. We believe that being an environmentally conscious coffee company means doing the right thing for you, our customers, and our farmer partners at origin. We work with green coffee importers to identify coffees that are aligned with not only our flavor profiles, but also our values.
We strive to minimize our packaging, and limit our stress on the environment. Our coffee is packaged in a compostable bag with a PLA (Polylactic Acid) liner, it is a clear, crisp film made from the sugars in corn starch. This product works well for items with a higher oil content, as the PLA liner will help keep our product from wicking through the outer paper. PLA bags biodegrade in less than a month in a proper composter. We recommend removing the label and tin-tie prior to composting. At the Farmer's markets and vendor events we use 100% recyclable sample hot cups, and 100% biodegradeable cold cups made also from PLA corn resin.
Our coffees can be found at select retail partners as well as online. We attend several farmer's markets and vendor events throughout the year and update our website regularly with that information. At SkyTop we believe in giving back to the local community, and regularly give coffee donations to In My Father's Kitchen, a non-profit organization that provides outreach services to homeless individuals in Syracuse, NY.
