Since 1993, Colectivo has been sourcing coffees from origin and roasting every batch by hand. By developing farmer and co-op partnerships, they can be involved in every step of creating a great coffee experience. Colectivo is proud to offer their Session Roasted™ coffees in addition to Letterbox Fine Tea, Colectivo Keg Company beers, and made-from-scratch food, Troubadour artisan breads, and baked goods.
Their name was inspired by the artful and funky buses used for public transportation across Latin America, “colectivos” (co-lec-TEE-vo), and the iconic part of everyday life they represent. Colectivo is independently owned and roasts their award-winning coffees on a pair of vintage Probats in Milwaukee’s Riverwest neighborhood.
