What is Zero-Carbon Roasting?
Dominated by traditional, fire-based roasting methods, the coffee industry produces millions of pounds of CO2 greenhouse gas emissions every year. Mississippi Mud Coffee works to reduce our footprint by utilizing state-of-the-art, air-based roasting equipment that incinerates exhaust smoke, thus eliminating carbon emissions from the roasting process while maintaining quality and consistency across our entire product line. We do this for every single product we make, from our whole bean coffees to our grab-and-go cold brew beverages. This saves tens of thousands of pounds of CO2 greenhouse gas emissions each year, helping preserve our planet’s atmosphere and living environments, and giving our customers another reason to celebrate and enjoy their favorite brews.
