If you find yourself captivated by the flavors, textures, and aromas of new and far-off lands, then you’re in the right place. We invite you to experience life—and coffee—on the other side of ordinary.
Banda is named for a small and largely uninhabited group of islands in Indonesia
You won’t find them in many guidebooks, but they were once at the very heart of the trans-pacific spice trade and the age of exploration it gave rise to. This cultural crossroads reminds us that travel is about making connections, and that behind every piece of paradise there is a soul and a story worth seeking out.
Banda seeks out coffee that is distinctive, true-to-place, and responsibly sourced.
Our single-origin coffees are inspired by the cultures and traditions of the Far East and South Pacific. Each tastes different, but they all have real character. We source and roast highest quality beans that embody the spirit and flavor of their land and the passion and stewardship of the people who grow them. Always authentic, never generic—that’s the Banda Life.
The Banda Life is about…
Being in the moment
Finding joy in the simple good things in life
Being in the know but always open to the new
Appreciating quality and originality in every detail
Seeking personal enrichment through real experiences
Traveling inward as well as outward
Welcome to the Banda Life
The ritual of preparing and sharing a cup of coffee is something that connects us—both to the far off places it’s grown and the people around the globe who have woven it into the fabric of their cultures. Every bean makes a unique journey: from the farmer, to the buyer, to the roaster, and ultimately to you.
Banda sources and roasts premium, single-origin coffees that embody the distinctive and nuanced flavors of different Asia-Pacific growing regions and the passionate people who produce them. Every sip is an opportunity to appreciate the simple good things in life—and the stories they carry with them.
