Coffee is connection.
We love that a single cup of coffee is simultaneously a global and a local product, and our goal is to shrink the distance between those planes of existence. We created Small Planes to pursue honest, accountable, and fair partnerships that connect quality-focused coffee producers to you.
Small Planes Coffee is a specialty roasting company founded by Ryan and Jill Jensen in the spring of 2017 to foster a greater intimacy between the coffees and the communities they love. Our roastery is located in northeast Washington, D.C., just a short walk from the National Arboretum.
We believe coffee, done well and with purpose, can draw us closer. Small Planes pursues the following values: fostering community from producer to consumer; continually striving to offer coffees of the highest quality; sustaining ethically-minded business practices; and investing in long-lasting personal connections.
