Regina, one of our founders, has coffee in her DNA. Her family has grown and sold coffee for over 200 years. So, in 2009, inspired by that heritage, Regina, her husband Scott, and their son Chris formed Green Ape.
Green Ape beans come from our family and friends’ farms in Antigua, Guatemala. We also work with single-origin, sustainable farms around the world to ethically source only shade-grown, non-GMO beans.
Those beans are handled with care, and meticulously slow-roasted at our Austin, Texas facility. This is what brings out the distinctively bold yet smooth flavor in all Green Ape
But we didn’t just want to create a coffee company—we wanted to create a business that does no harm to the environment and gives back to the planet. That’s why we promote the Ape Alliance, an organization that protects apes and their habitats around the world.

Green Ape beans come from our family and friends’ farms in Antigua, Guatemala—producing the highest quality coffee due to its fertile volcanic soil, perfect elevation, and just the right amount of rainfall. We also work with single-origin, sustainable farms around the world, in places like Peru, Colombia, and Africa, to ethically source only shade-grown, non-GMO beans.
What started out as an impulse purchase of an antique roaster turned into our Austin, Texas facility.
This is where our unique process of meticulously slow-roasting beans in small batches results in a distinctively bold, yet smooth flavor you’ll taste in all Green Ape coffee products.
Our Cold Brews are patiently steeped here for hours and hours. The outcome is a product that is smooth as silk and low in acid.
Our facility is also our science lab, where we develop unique flavors and products like Green Ape Salted Caramel or French Vanilla Coffee Cream Sodas.
