Good Land Organics and Frinj Coffee on growing for the future

Last year, Blue Bottle was proud to introduce our first coffee grown in our home state. Nurtured and produced on Good Land Organics, the SoCal paradise founded by Jay Ruskey, California Good Land Organics marks a new tradition of coffee far from its tropical origins. For Ruskey—who also owns Frinj Coffee, INC., which shares science-forward approaches to coffee-growing with other farmers—sustainability isn’t just a premium tacked onto the crops they produce. It’s a necessity.

“We have always tried to work with the triple bottom line of sustainable agriculture,” says Jay. For Good Land Organics and Frinj Coffee, sustainability is comprised of three equally important components: environment, people, and business.
