RED BAY COFFEE

From seed to cup, Red Bay is devoted to sourcing, roasting and delivering the best and most beautiful coffee to the people. We work globally to source high quality, sustainable and fair trade coffees. We work locally to roast and serve excellent coffee, provide outstanding service, and live our mission of inclusion and diversity.
Just this year, Oakland was ranked the best city for coffee in the U.S. and Red Bay is leading the pack—creating opportunities for our local community while fostering single origin, fair trade, and sustainable coffees. We’ve earned the privilege of providing coffee to some of the biggest tech names: Uber, Salesforce, Twitter and more. They love our coffee and they’re located in our back yard.
