BeanFruit Coffee Company

Our mission is to provide fresh roasted coffee to the Jackson Metro and educate local consumers about great tasting coffee. We meticulously select our coffees from only the highest quality sources, and we roast it to perfection to bring out the character of each coffee.

We focus primarily on single origin coffees because want our customers to be aware of what beverage they are drinking, where it came from, and how it affects coffee farmers around the world.

The Stories

In a state that isn't quite known for producing high quality coffee, BeanFruit owner Paul Bonds is not only running a successful company that does just that, but is slowly teaching Mississippians to look at coffee in a whole new way. By consistently producing exceptional roasted coffee, he is leading Mississippians to appreciate not just the drink in their cup, but all the steps it took to make that drink.

As indicated by his national awards and always highly-rated coffees Paul Bonds is setting a new standard for coffee roasters, not just in our state, but in the entire Southeast.

I've only ordered coffee online, and it's been wonderful. The coffee is really good, and the value compared to other top coffee businesses is good. Also, in my last order there was a hand written note thanking me for my purchase and to enjoy the Ethiopian I got. Well I'm sold, BeanFruit is great, their product is awesome and the Guy behind it is awesome.
