TERRA(noun. \‘ter·ə\ Latin, literally “earth”.)
NOVA (noun. \’nō·və\ Latin, “new”.)
Jeff and Eliza Murphy of Terra Nova Coffee roast organic coffee in a barn, tucked among the rocky hills of the Connecticut River Valley in New Hampshire’s Monadnock Region. You’ll find them roasting small, fresh made-to-order batches every day of the week, and sometimes into the starry night — just so they can get it to their customers at it’s absolute peak quality. As a family-owned and operated roaster, they pay close attention to process; from sourcing to receiving, roasting to packaging, they ship 100% USDA organic coffee with care, expertise, and attention.
These coffees have a story to tell: of a coffee bush on a mountainside; of a farmer, her family, his community; of the sunshine… before long, of family roasters; of a hot water kettle steaming; of an early morning kitchen or a bustling cafe, a moment to pause; a conversation with a friend. As coffee roasters and coffee lovers, Jeff and Eliza are inspired by the alchemy of bean-to-cup, and by the way that perfect cup, at the perfect moment, can transform us too. Great coffee can do good, and they love being part of that.
The Murphys believe that coffee is one of the great pleasures in life and sharing that goodness is at the heart of what they do. They also believe in connection to family, friends, and community – and good coffee helps create and fortify those connections! If you don’t run into Jeff and Eliza shopping the aisles of the Monadnock Food Co-op, you can often catch them down the street at Brewbakers, their cafe, serving the Terra Nova line along with some delectable baked goods and breakfast sandwiches that are always best shared with a friend.
In Latin, Terra Nova means ‘new earth’. So here’s to a new day, a fresh batch, a perfect cup.
