PT’s was born in 1993 in Topeka, KS out of Jeff Taylor and Fred Polzin’s simple desire for an
excellent cup of coffee. Four years and two retail locations later, they began roasting and
traveling to origin, forging the Direct Trade partnerships that have made PT’s a leader in the
specialty coffee industry.
Nearly 80% of PT’s coffee is acquired through their Direct Trade program. Exceptional coffee
depends upon great partnerships, and PT's partners are selected for more than their
harvests—they are socially responsible and environmentally conscious.
