Our Story

The Back of the Yards Coffee Co.

is located on the Southside of Chicago. We strive to honor the immigrant working class tradition of the Chicago Stockyards through our mission, which we refer to as our SEED (Social Impact, Economic Development, Environmental Responsibility, and Direct Relations). Everything we do, from where we source our coffee, to choosing our packaging, to where we are located, and to the people we hire, is guided by these four principles.

Our goal is to change the way people understand and experience coffee. We are one of the only Latinx and woman-owned coffee companies in the nation.
