We have been purveying top quality, locally roasted coffee online since 1998. But our love affair with coffee dates back to the early 1980's in the heart of New York City. Although I have been a coffee lover since I began driving -- and I am pretty sure my mom invented Iced Coffee -- my wife Saima comes from a family where only black tea with milk and sugar was served. So it was a very big deal after we wer married in '86 that she switched to coffee after she was introduced to what she says was a "fresh-roasted-brewed-cup-of-heaven".
In 1998 we had the coincidental opportunity to partner with a friend in the blossoming internet sales business of coffee, and being natural born entrepreneurs -- specifically having founded and established several business based on our passions -- Saima and I jumped on the idea to have access to the worlds finest coffee beans, and to be able to offer our friends, family, neighbors and people just like you the opportunity to experience coffee the way we did.
Since then, we have rarely missed a great cup of coffee upon waking every morning, and that only due to extraneous circumstances. It is the reason for our quiet time together every morning, it is the focal point of any of our travels and occasional excursions and it is the basis for gathering with our family and friends.
In 2008, Saima and I purchased the business and thus HugAMug was born.
Our mission since then has been to offer our customers and friends the opportunity to experience "the great cup of coffee" by choosing HugAMug coffees. Whether it is espressos, cappuccinos, lattes, or preparations of coffee by auto-drip, cold brew, pour over, or the french press, the sound of the coffee grinder, the air filled with the aroma of brewing coffee and the anticipation of the first sip that stimulates the heart rate and gives a quick and gratifying jolt that quickly alters the mood and attentiveness, coffee is the reassurance that our day will turn out just fine.
At HugAMug, our roasters begin with the world's finest sourced beans from around the world and roast your orders fresh everyday. We take the time to carefully roast, hand-pack and heat seal every pound within hours of roasting. We make it easy for you to always have fresh gourmet coffee on hand.
