Maru adopts its name from a native Korean language, San Ma Ru, which means ‘mountaintop’. This is our symbol of quality as the finest coffee beans are grown and harvested from areas of high altitude.
Born from a love of process and everyday quality, we are inspired by all things analog and the simplicity of good coffee. We believe that quality does not have to be austere and that tradition can be respected as well as re-imagined. Maru is made with intention, balance, and a love for the ritual of a well-made coffee.
We currently roast our coffee in Arts District in Los Angeles. It is here where much of our production takes place. From the delivery of selected coffee offerings, to defining key tasting notes that highlight wonderful properties—we seek to create a standard that is exceptional for everyone.
