About & Sourcing

Some folks may not know that Gelato Brothers came to life because of our love of gelato during summer trips to Europe with the family. Our favorite experiences have to be the gelato bars in Greece. Although our travels brought us to love gelato, we didn’t want to forget our roots either. We live on a 30-acre farm in East Tennessee that was a working dairy operation back in the mid-twentieth century. To pay homage to this history, we’ve named our coffees for the classic American farm operations of the 1950s.

What makes our Brew Bros coffee line of organic beans special?  We at Gelato Brothers are passionate about the Farm to Cup element of our method.  This means we are sourcing direct from the beans in the field through a single source importer broker to a trusted and experienced 20lb small roaster/packer & fresh ground in our shops.  Most brands & especially coffee shops don’t take this much effort & knowledge of sourcing.  We also don’t stockpile beans.  We order in fresh beans each week to our roaster for orders.  This keeps a fresher product without a need for nitro flushing.

Shawn & Priscilla Wilmoth traveled the world to find great desserts and coffees and now offers them in America.
