PARK CITY, UT, US – Few things start the day out right like a cup of freshly brewed coffee, but without the right equipment, many summer travelers have to settle for an instant version – Hugo Coffee Roasters is changing that with barista-level coffee available in single-serve coffee tea bags. Hugo Coffee Roasters was started by Claudia McMullin, who left her job as a high-power Wall Street lawyer to pursue her two passions: great coffee and animals. She shares profits from her sustainably-sourced coffee to support animal rescue efforts.
Hugo recently debuted their single-use brew bags to allow people on the go to enjoy the taste of home-brewed coffee without the hassle or equipment.
“As people head out for camping or RVing or other summer vacations, they don’t always have access to their French press or drip machine,” said Claudia. “It used to be that the only option for travelers was instant coffee, but we’re changing that.”
After being brewed, instant coffee is dehydrated and turned into crystals, but Hugo’s single serve coffee bags start with freshly roasted beans that are ground and specially sealed so that oxygen will not degrade their flavor. The bags can then be steeped in a mug of hot water for a few minutes and enjoyed.
“It’s like enjoying our designer coffee at a high-end coffee shop, but people can do it in a national park or on the beach or wherever they may be this summer,” said Claudia.
Unlike instant coffee that often comes packaged in plastic pods, the coffee tea bags are 100% biodegradable and Earth-friendly. They’re also animal-friendly as 10% of Hugo’s quarterly profits are used to support animal rescue efforts.
“We are the go-to coffee for animal lovers nationwide, said Claudia, who has donated nearly $30,000 to animal rescue efforts through Hugo Coffee. Hugo was named after Claudia’s own rescue dog. Her small-batch roasts are known for their dog-themed names: “Roll Over Breakfast Blend,” “Bonafido Dark Roast,” and “New Trick Light Roast.”
Hugo Coffee is sourced from organic, fair-trade beans grown on farms that pay a living wage. Their roasting methods rely on natural gas and infrared heat, which require far less energy than traditional roasting methods. Their tightly-controlled roasting process has helped secure their reputation for quality that is consistent across all of their roasts, day in and day out.
Hugo started as a wholesale coffee roaster but has branched out to direct-to-customer products sold through their e-store, including coffee tea bags, roaster samplers, and cold brews.
