Meet VitaCup’s Roastmaster
Jeff McIntosh, our Roastmaster, has coffee in his DNA He's a 5th generation coffee professional who has had the opportunity to learn about coffee from a young age when his father would bring home coffees from exotic locations around the world. This gave Jeff the unique opportunity to develop long lasting relationships with the coffee farmers and producers. Jeff has specialized in developing unique blend profiles in addition to functional powder beverages.
Developing VitaCup Flavors
Jeff and his team spent countless hours behind the coffee roasters and in the lab, meticulously creating a premium coffee product charged with the essential vitamins. Jeff selected coffees from Honduras and Columbia for their medium acidity and floral and chocolate notes to deliver a flavorful experience. Additional beans were selected from Mexico and Brazil for their sumptuous yet light finish. The quality of coffee and roast ensures that these single serve coffees don’t sacrifice flavor for simplicity.
How We Do It
- Advanced Sampling in the Lab for QA
- Latest Brewers in our Cupping Room for Compatibility
- Blind Taste Tests for Flavor
- Triple Head Grinder for Optimal Particle Size

Responsible Manufacturing & Sourcing
In addition to great coffee beans and roasting, Jeff and VitaCup have partnered to drive innovation in the manufacturing process and the sourcing. After 6 months of research we were able to bring the ideal cup of vitamin infused coffee to market. VitaCup is BPA free, 100% recyclable (unlike many other single serve pods), and dairy, soy and gluten free. Our coffee is roasted and packaged in a USDA accredited manufacturing facility located in Sunny San Diego!
