If you have been looking for a high quality coffee with rich, locally source ingredients, you are not alone. If you have been wishing for a hand crafted cup, where flavor takes priority, rather than living with standard automated processing, you are not alone. If you care to partake in an independent, community focused business, instead of the global corporate model...well, ditto.
We were looking for the same thing. In our travels, the best cups of coffee always come from small, independent businesses, focused on quality, flavor, and community. We wanted this for Ormond Beach, FL, so Gold Leaf Coffee Co. was established in 2017 in order to provide this.
From it's inception, the best offerings on every level of our business have always been a priority. This includes training, ingredients, equipment, and environment. Our chief barista was sent to Florence, Italy to study under the European SCAE methods. All of our baristas are trained to use these same techniques in order to bring some of the quality of a European cup of coffee back to our home town. Our ingredients are hand picked for flavor, quality, ethics, and support of local economy. The equipment is selected for performance and to maintain the standards we want to provide to you, cost not being a factor to compromise on. We are also very particular about comfort and sustainability; our furnishings are what we would want for ourselves and our disposables are environmentally friendly (corn modified spoons and sugar care fiber bowls....who knew).
Weather you are stopping in quickly to grab something on the go, staying a while to hang out, or need a moment to relax after a long day at work; whatever the reason, we hope you enjoy our coffee and our space. We will certainly enjoy your company while your visit.
