About Us

We are Three Waves Coffee, a specialty coffee roasting company based in Santa Cruz, CA. Our name is inspired by our love of the ocean, and our passion for third wave (specialty) coffee.

We carefully roast each coffee to bring out the natural and unique flavors. We roast our beans in a high efficiency Loring roaster, which uses 80% less energy, and emits 80% less emissions than a standard roaster.

Roasting coffee

Roasted coffee is sealed for freshness immediately after roasting, in fully compostable bags. All online orders are shipped in mailers and boxes made from recycled and compostable materials.

Eco friendly packaging

In our online store, we offer you a rotating selection of specialty coffee beans. You can also find us serving up delicious coffee beverages at local events.
