About Us

We are super passionate about coffee. And we get it: so is everybody, right? What makes us different? Well, we've spent years traveling, cultivating relationships with roasters all over, experiencing the diversity of coffee, and trying to connect the dots to make the world a little smaller.

Coffee is Global

We live in an increasingly global economy, and most people agree that irresponsibly globalized business can be harmful to local communities. But while there is so much good that comes from going local, the potential is there to put up blinders and miss the amazing innovations of people far away from home. Thoughtless localization can be as irresponsible as careless globalization. The reality is that coffee is a global product that traverses the world between being planted, harvested, roasted, and enjoyed. The world's cultural hubs have all developed unique coffee cultures, with their own taste palettes and roast profiles.

Yonder started after 7 years of full-time international travel. Coffee shops became my home away from home. I fell in love with the diversity of coffee around the world. Before long, I started bringing coffee home to share with friends at popup globally-inspired tasting events.

In our subscriptions, we mix things up, featuring both world-famous roasters and hidden gems that aren’t well-known outside of their communities. But you’ll always get high quality, single-origin third-wave coffee, delivered as freshly as possible.

We are anti-local (but not, like, mad about it). We aim to be intentionally global and positively impact everyone in our path.

Taste the incredible differences between Australian and German flavor profiles.
Experience the ethos of Norwegian koselig and Japanese kissaten distilled in their coffees.

Travel has made us who we are, and each time we leave, we bring back treasures from the world over.

Yonder is the most local expression to describe something far away.
Ready for us to bring the world home to you?

Hi! It's nice
to meet you.

I’m Caleb. I'm from Raleigh, NC and I love coffee (which doesn’t make me a snob). I’ve spent a majority of the past seven years away from home, working for a charity that rescues children from trafficking and other forms of abuse. It's this massive honor to be a part of something I believe in, and it has afforded me the privilege of seeing the world (73 countries and counting).

Whether it’s after a grueling flight, a long day of bus rides, or a restless night in a crowded hostel, nothing quite resets my heart and mind like the bright, rich smell of freshly ground coffee welcoming me home. The longer you are away, the more you learn to find home in moments instead of addresses. The most consistent home for me is a great cafe, because I’ve found that no matter what corner of the world you end up in, when you stumble on a coffee shop that really cares about the quality of their coffee — and then they discover that you care too — they are so quick to welcome you into their space and invite you into their community.

Those baristas and roasters became my friends, and helping highlight their craft became my joy. I started a website called A Traveler’s Guide to Quality Coffee Around the World to help people sift through the mess on Yelp and Trip Advisor and find genuinely good coffee no matter where they traveled.

I even started bringing beans home from 10-20 roasters at a time and hosting coffee tastings that highlighted different regions of the world. But as I kept traveling, the seed of an idea kept growing, and as it took root, I dreamed about bringing the world of coffee back home to people.

Diversity makes us better, and it makes coffee better too. Your job may not take you all over the globe, but I started Yonder to invite you to expand your world each morning. Together, we will travel the world, one cup of coffee at a time.
