Current schedule of our pastries, which are prepared fresh each morning by local bakers:
Barefoots Joe serves coffee roasted in our roastery on campus.
Ensuring that the green coffee we purchase is both top quality and ethically traded, we work closely with a leading, international importer to select specialty coffees for our patrons. Our importers interact directly with coffee farmers and contribute to the quality of living and working. They travel to the farms and regularly cup coffees, deciding the best to import for clients like us. Because coffees usually thrive nearest the equator and are affected by environmental factors such as altitude, soil quality, rainfall, and sunshine, most of our coffees come from Latin America, East Africa, and Indonesia. We carry single-origin coffees and blend our own espresso in-house.
Barefoots Joe roaster, Jesse Myers, believes in roasting coffees in a manner that honors and extends the work of the farmers. Thus, he aims to draw out each coffee's unique attributes without imposing a roasted flavor onto the seeds. Our hope is that our patrons enjoy their experience at Barefoots and, in turn, join us in celebrating and supporting the work of those who plant, harvest, sort, bag, and live on the income from this coffee.
As an extension of our mission, Barefoots carries top quality chocolate and other sauces and syrups.
Our mocha is a single-origin cocoa from Ghana, provided by Omanhene. Omanhene helps cacao growers to manufacture locally rather than ship raw beans abroad for processing, a move that helps the farmers earn fairer wages and helps reduce the company's carbon footprint. Maintaining a "beyond fair trade" mission, Omanhene has a relational model of business that adds value back into the workers' lives.
Our white mocha and caramel sauces are crafted by Guittard, a family-owned company and one of only ten chocolate makers in the United States. They also work directly with growers to find the best single-origin chocolates and blends available. To make sauces such as ours, they use only natural ingredients such as pure cane sugar, red vanilla beans, and full cream milk.
All other syrups are crafted by Monin, whose syrups have received top ratings throughout their century of operation. Barefoots carries popular flavors such as vanilla and hazelnut, as well as sugar-free and seasonal options.
