Jose Vido, son of a third-generation coffee grower from Italy, grew up on his father's small coffee plantation in Brazil. His upbringing on the farm sparked a passion for great coffee, which led Jose to open Morningstar Coffee Company in 1996. A Twin Cities-based organic, fair trade coffee roaster, Morningstar has led the Twin Cities coffee scene with its commitment to delivering sustainable, superior-quality coffee.
Morningstar Coffee buys certified organic coffees from all over the world. Shade-grown, fair trade coffees are selected from growers who employ the same methods of hand-picking and drying beans that Jose's own family has been practicing for generations. These standards make for not only better-tasting coffee but coffee that's socially and ecologically responsible as well.
Morningstar also blends, roasts and grinds small batches of Kowalski's Signature Coffees. Every batch is prepared to order to ensure maximum quality and freshness.
Find both MorningStar Coffee and Kowalski's Signature Coffee in the Grocery Department of your nearest Kowalski's location. Selection and availability vary by market.
