Grounds for Change is a family-owned and operated coffee roasting business located on the Kitsap Peninsula due west of downtown Seattle. We roast our 100% fair trade, organic coffee in small batches to ensure that you receive the freshest coffee possible.

All of our coffee is Fair for Life Fair Trade certified and our organic certification meets the stringent Organic Processor Standards enforced by the USDA and the Washington State Department of Agriculture. Additionally, our coffee is Carbon-Free Certified by, which means that the complete carbon footprint (from crop to cup) is offset with tree planting. Much of the coffee we sell is grown in shaded conditions which helps to support healthy habitat for migratory birds.

Attention to the social, environmental and financial impacts of conducting business forms the foundation of Grounds for Change. Out of this concern grows premium quality, great service and passion for our trade. The result is a truly exceptional cup of coffee. Every single bean we roast is fair trade certified, organic certified, CarbonFree® certified and shade grown, which means the possibility of a real livelihood for coffee growers, a breath of fresh air for the planet, zero net carbon emissions from “crop to cup” and healthy forests for migratory songbirds.
