Try Our Coffee!!

Marialy Justiniano - Master Roaster

"Roasting coffee is our passion. You will notice it when you try our coffee!" - Marialy Justiniano - Master Roaster and Owner.

Marialy has fond memories of her grandfather's farm in Eastern Bolivia, where along the farm animals she used to play with, she would pick coffee with her brothers and cousins. Right after college, she went on to work with women farmers in her home town, helping them with farm extension and training programs. She met her husband Alejandro later on while working in a non profit organization that provided finance and technical assistance to bean farmers who were exporting their crops to Brazil, Colombia and Asia. Marialy worked along women and men farmers to develop their cooperatives so that they could better market and sell their products internationally. After many years of working in Bolivia and Peru, she and her husband moved to the US, where they continued their work and relation with farmers across Latin America. While in the US, Marialy and Alejandro decided to take their relationship with farmers one step further and decided to bring small amounts of coffee from their home countries and roast them on their own. At first the roasting took place in their garage and the coffee beans were sold to friends and neighbors. But as the orders grew larger and larger, the roasting business moved to a proper industrial zone close to their home in Springfield. Their first two years of operation happened right there in their home on Cervantes street, the place where their children were born. 

Cervantes Coffee is an artisan roaster specialized in single origin coffees from Central and South America. It specializes in these regions because it's the part of the world that we know the best.  

Cervantes Coffee was born out of our interest in sharing our passion for coffee with friends and our extended community. We wanted to tell those around us the story behind the cup: where coffee is grown, how its grown, and who grows it.

We are a woman owned coffee roasting business based in Northern Virginia. We pioneered the concept of specialty single origin coffee in the region serving customers in Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC and Pennsylvania. Today our coffee is being served in churches, restaurants, cafes, offices, bakeries and specialty markets. People are starting to go beyond the anonymous coffee sources, the national blends and the flavored coffees. Single Origin is in, and we specialize in that. We take time and effort to select the best available green coffee in the market working directly with suppliers, coffee cooperatives, and individual growers, so we know where our coffee comes from. We visit the coffee regions every year, to compare and see firsthand the farmers and establish long term relationships with them. Our goal is that you know exactly where your coffee is from all the way to the farm or region of the world.

Cervantes Coffee operates almost exclusively on a Roast To Order basis.

We roast coffee everyday. Our coffee is fresh roasted guaranteed. We've shipped our coffee to over 15 different states and three countries. Order some coffee from us today and find out what makes our coffee special. Know where your coffee is from!
