Journey to San Agustin - Medium Roast Colombian Coffee

Let our medium roast coffee transport you to the remote San Agustin region of Colombia, where generations of farmers have perfected the art of coffee growing. With tasting notes of orange, caramel, and milk chocolate, this coffee offers a sweet, vibrant cup.

Grown at high altitudes between 1,500-1,750 meters, this 100% Arabica coffee is carefully cultivated on small family-owned farms in the fertile Southern Huila region. The fully washed and sun dried beans develop slowly, resulting in a coffee with complex fruity flavors and a smooth, delicate body.

The farmers meticulously hand-pick only the ripest red cherries and process them using methods passed down for generations. The beans are then sun-dried on patios or clever rooftop contraptions designed to shelter the beans from rainfall. This time-honored approach produces exceptionally flavorful beans.

By purchasing this coffee, you support sustainable livelihoods for coffee farmers in one of Colombia's most prized coffee growing regions. Katerco Coffee's mission is to empower individuals with disabilities through employment and job training.

With its juicy orange acidity, sweet caramel notes, and creamy chocolate finish, this medium roast coffee makes for a bright, well-rounded cup. Brew it any way you like - French press, pour over, or drip - and let the complex flavors shine.
Go on an armchair adventure to rural Colombia with this San Agustin specialty coffee. Available in whole bean and ground variations.

     Our mission is to develop the skills of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities through employment, education and training. We will provide an exceptional customer experience while serving the finest cup of coffee in Richmond. We believe that all people have the ability to thrive when given the opportunity to learn in a supportive environment.

     The Thrive Foundation, Inc is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization that is working to provide the best coffee to our community while fulfilling our mission to develop the skills of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities through employment, education and training.  


  Keri Lee was a Special Education teacher in Chesterfield County, Virginia who noticed something extremely important while teaching High School students - after graduating, there are not many paying jobs for these members of our society. The unemployment rate for people with disabilities typically floats right around 7%.

   Soon after coming to this realization, the idea for Katerco Coffee was born. Established in 2019, the original concept for Katerco Coffee was a local coffee shop in the Richmond, Virginia area that would employ, educate, and train people with disabilities. The Thrive Foundation, INC, the 501c3 nonprofit that operates Katerco Coffee, was formed to allow our community to make tax-deductible donations toward our success.

   After spending months scoping out a location for the shop, and having preparations made for construction, the Coronavirus pandemic took the nation by storm. Keri and the team at Katerco Coffee made the difficult decision to put the in-person coffee shop on hold for the time being and began to brainstorm ways to continue our mission.

   As an answer to this unfortunate situation, Katerco was launched in May of 2020. As a local, small-batch, craft roaster, Katerco Coffee excels in producing some of the finest coffee ever consumed. This amazingly roasted coffee is paired perfectly with our continuing mission of providing employment opportunities to people with disabilities, and we are proud to have made this change. As a nonprofit, the money that is made off of our roasted coffee goes directly back to our mission of employing people with disabilities. Every three bags of coffee that we sell helps us to pay for one hour of labor for these great employees.
