Our Environmental and Social Impact Partners Include
Coffee is one of the world’s most consumed beverages. It is globally unifying, much like our other love—jazz music. Both jazz and coffee are appreciated widely across all demographics and can resonate with individuals from all walks of life. We make “specialty” coffee more inclusive and accessible to everyone in the way that jazz music was made more accessible to the masses.
Looking at the history of vinyl recordings as an analogy, that was one of the first means of bringing aspects of a live music set/jazz club into the home. This allowed for wider audiences to enjoy the sounds of the time. We intend to do the same with our coffee. Our range of products cater to a range of palates and connect with not only the occasional consumer but also the connoisseur.
We celebrate and support creativity and innovation in all forms, but notably the arts and sciences. Coffee roasting represents both of these disciplines. With our company being named for the trumpet and the complex creations that can be made from just 3 keys, we do things differently than the rest. The “Three Keys” way is to positively disrupt the traditional coffee industry by developing new ways to create and share exceptional coffee, akin to the artistic freedom and creativity of creating music.
We view our company as a means to positively impact our environment, which include our employees, our customers, and our community. We are stewards of our community and make decisions that consider and prioritize the perceived effect on our stakeholders and our society. We present ourselves in all internal and external interactions with honesty, integrity, and professionalism. We believe in paying fair wages and providing ample opportunities for professional development and advancement to our staff. We show respect to our customers and offer ways to improve their experience as well as enable them to be more confident and knowledgeable consumers. We are considerate and thoughtful partners to our suppliers and vendors.
