Not all coffees are created equal.

Unlike beans used in most packaged coffees, specialty coffee beans are hand-picked and hand processed. That’s certainly a major differentiator in the world of coffee, but there’s an even more important one. Specialty coffee costs a little more because buyers who import specialty coffee pay a premium price to the farmers who grow and harvest the beans. It gives our farmer partners an opportunity to make a better life for themselves and their families’ futures. Every single roaster featured in the Nomi Brew store only roasts specialty coffee. We are committed to making a game-changing difference in the lives our farmer partners.

Nomi Brew is proud to welcome our inaugural coffee roaster partner.

Meet Scott McMartin, Founder of Fundamental Coffee Company.

Based in Seattle, Scott describes himself as someone who “lives and breathes” coffee. As an in-demand Q-Grader, he’s often enlisted to lead coffee cupping sessions and assist clients in improving quality. He also helps develop new products like coffee blends and ready-to-drink beverages. He has spent the better part of two decades buying coffee—he’s purchased well over a billion pounds—and has traveled to more than 20 coffee-producing countries. Scott, now a successful, well-regarded micro roaster, rose through the ranks of Starbucks over 20 years, learning the coffee industry from the inside out. He joined Starbucks as it was becoming a marketing juggernaut, guiding coffee quality and acting as one of the principal coffee buyers. Many of the core and seasonal coffee blend recipes Starbucks uses to this day were developed by Scott.

Career Highlights of a Lifetime Coffee Connoisseur

On the Early Years

After I left Starbucks, I wanted to continue in the specialty coffee industry, because I knew it was key to the sustainability of the coffee industry as a whole. This led me to begin a consulting practice, using my deep knowledge garnered from so many years in the business.

On His Heroes

“I was fortunate enough to come under the tutelage of Alfred Peet, founder of internationally known Peet’s Coffee, widely credited with transforming the coffee industry in the second wave. Alfred was a coffee evangelist, and I absorbed his gospel throughout our life-long friendship. There’s no more important mentor in my life.”

On Fundamental Coffee Company

“I started Fundamental in 2014 and from day one, we have focused specifically on dark roasts. We began modestly by  buying roasting time on a small  8-Kilo roaster a friend of mine owned. Then word of mouth kicked in. Friends and family played a crucial role helping me get the news out about this neat, little niche roasting company. Today, Fundamental’s coffee is sold to individuals online, while its commercial presence has expanded to include key restaurants and diners across the Seattle area.
