So what is crack’d and why that name? Well, see crack’d started on a Sunday morning over a cup of coffee. While nursing a headache from the night before I was sitting on the couch thinking about wanting to try a new coffee roast. After searching through apps and websites I realized there wasn’t really a good place to learn about new roasts. There were plenty of subscription-based companies out there (Mystobox, Angels Cup, Stayroasted, talking about you) but none where I could just look up new roasts, learn about new farmers or just see what’s going on in the coffee world. So, right then, with my head pounding a bit and my sweatpants still on this whole passion project started to take a life of its own and here we are with crack’d your coffee ecosystem.
Now, we aren’t intelligent coffee experts in anyway with a trained pallet, nor are we cool cafe dwellers. We just like trying and drinking good coffee and want to keep drinking it. We want to bring you as many specialty and small batch coffees from around the country and ultimately the world as we can. We’ve been painstakingly manually collecting all of the information you see here about the roasts and roasters. It’s a lot of fucking info. We have rated as many as we can, staying up into the weird hours just tasting and writing, and we give you the ability to buy them and find all the events happening where you can meet with these roasters.
We also want to support the coffee community and help it grow. So for every bag of coffee you buy, we donate $1 to farmers and farming communities. So go on, download the app, browse, read, and most important post and share with friends!
