Pierce Brothers Coffee Roasters not only provide great coffees they give us excellent service. I asked for a shipment to be delayed a few days and they did it.

I live on the street. And have been here longer than them. This company is stinking up the neighborhood. The smell is so bad. It burns your lungs at times. Nevermind the headaches, smell and frequent... blue smoke. People cant even sit outside. It is said there are no health effects from this issue. But its not pleasant either way. Some People HAVE to go inside because of this as well.
Please Boycott this unfriendly company to new to my neighborhood! !!! We have waited long enough for them to fix there issue.

I came across pierce brothers last year and have found myself only drinking their coffee since. Every other coffee tastes so bad to me! I ran out of my fogbuster this week and had to drink something t...hat was laying around the kitchen and really couldn't stomach it! Such an awesome company to work with too! Thanks guys! See More

On 01/05/14 I wrote to your customer service and said the following:

"My husband and I have been buying Pierce Bros. Coffee from our local health food store (Newark Natural Foods in Newark, DE) for t...he last couple of years and have been very pleased with it. We tried several other organic, fair-trade, air roasted coffees because we care about our health, our planet and our fellow man. Pierce Bros. was the smoothest, least irritating to our stomach coffee we could find. We enjoyed every bag we bought until about two months ago.

The first bag that was off was the Sumatra, our usual choice, and it smelled sour and bitter. We decided to brew a pot anyway just to be sure and it's taste was very harsh and burnt. We took it back and got a refund. The second bag was House Blend because they were out of Sumatra. The beans smelled ok so we brewed a pot in our french press and they were again very harsh, burnt and acrid. I only took a sip before realizing that it would upset my stomach and likely trigger a migraine but my husband is of hardier stock and drank a whole cup. He regretted that decision all day as his stomach has been upset since. I'm not writing to complain, I'm writing to ask if something has changed about the roasting process or the type of bean being used. Is it perhaps a problem with a local roasting house or local distributor? We'd love to keep buying your coffee because we miss it and it's a great price but we can't afford to keep wasting time and money or risking our stomachs. Any advice?"

A very nice CS agent named Mindy wrote us back the following:

"I am sorry to hear that you did not like a few bags of our coffee. The only thing I can think without doing a trace is that it was coffee purchased shortly after we had a fire in the roaster. It’s not a common occurrence but it did happen last year. I would be happy to send you out 2 bags of coffee if you let me know if you like it on whole bean or ground and your shipping address."

And she did indeed send us two bags of coffee and we were very pleased with your customer service. Sadly, the beans still tastes wrong, almost rancid. We tried making it at various temperatures using a french press, a bialleti espresso pot and a drip pot. We tried letting it brew longer or shorter than normal and with filtered tap versus distilled water. We added a pinch of salt and cinnamon to try to cut the bitterness. Nothing worked. A few months later we moved to another state so we didn't have the chance to give it another try. I can only assume something in the roasting process was changed, I really don't know. Maybe it's back to it's old wonderful self, I hope so, but I'm not local anymore so I won't have a chance to find out.

I know it's a disappointing review and I hope that anyone who reads this will give your coffee a fair shot because we really did enjoy it, the price was great and the customer service went above and beyond.

When deciding which coffee to serve at Agawam's Java Stop, there was no other coffee that even came close to the taste and quality of Pierce Bros!

Great product. Great people. I'm lucky to live locally .... smells good when I drive smells; even better when I make my smoothies with it.

I am a coffee snob. Pierce Bros. is hands down one of the best providers for a flavorful organic bean. My personal favorite is Fogbuster.For the dark, small cup fan,the boldness of the Espresso is nea...r to perfection.Awsomeness. See More

I would rather not drink coffee if it isn't Pierce Brothers. It would be a tough row to hoe elsewhere in the nation, except they ship everywhere so I'm always happily Fogbusted!

In October 2011, I stumbled upon the Fogbusters brand coffee sold by Pierce Brothers. It wakes and keeps me up and it is really smooth not bitter.
