Faust Haus Roasting Co. is an African American owned, Detroit based coffee company.  We are dedicated to deliver robust flavors, responsible growth, and relief to those in need. Our specialty spiced coffees help to support the farmers and people of the countries our beans originate from, as well as charities that bring relief to the diaspora around the world.


Faust Haus is triple bottom line (TBL) business. We use an accounting framework that incorporates three dimensions of performance : Social, Environmental, and Financial. These three facets can be summarized as people, planet, profit.
