Quality in Every Bag
The founder of Chingon Coffee, Steve Schick, believes that coffee should be enjoyed not just for its caffeine content, but also for its rich and diverse flavors. This is why two distinct flavor choices are offered – Medium Dark Roast and Medium Dark Cinnamon infused. Both of them are organic and free of any harmful pesticides. The team works tirelessly to ensure that each bag of Chingon Coffee embodies the rich flavor and smoothness that we know you’ll love.

“I was tired of drinking bitter coffee and upsetting my palate. What I craved was the coffee I drank while I visited the cities throughout Mexico. The smoothness from our coffee is enjoyable by all palates.” – says Steve. This was the driving force behind the passion for creating high-quality, delicious coffee. Chingon Coffee aims to transport you to the streets of Mexico with every sip you take.
Whether you’re a seasoned coffee drinker or just starting out, there’s something for everyone at Chingon Coffee. Indeed, their commitment to quality is reflected in every bag sold.

What inspired you to start the production of Chingon Coffee?
I started the production of Steve Chingon due to the bitterness of other brands not tasting well. I was inspired to create a brew that tasted good to any palette.
That’s an interesting name – Chingon. What’s the story behind it?
I was doing some taste tests with family and friends and with every sip, someone would say está chingon Steve. And so the name was created…
You mentioned that it’s grown in Sinaloa, Mexico? I know your exact coffee farm location is top secret 😉 but do spill the beans (pun intended) on why you chose that farm and how they do things differently?
I drank coffee from all over Mexico and slowly located a region that was even more delicious than the last. Our beans are grown near the jungles of Sinaloa.
Who’s your coffee roaster and why did you choose them? What’s the roasting process like?
My friends and I roast Steve Chingon in small batches at medium roast temperature of 420-430 degrees. We did not computerize our roasting efforts. Every batch is roasted with a careful eye and nose.
What are your thoughts on the current coffee culture in Coachella Valley and what are some of your favorite coffee shops?
The current coffee culture in the Coachella valley is broadening their scope on what true coffee is. Unfortunately, a lot of shops here use fillers and sugars to make their coffee appear decent.
Espresso Self is a great coffee shop.
Speaking of your favorite coffee shops, I know a big source of your inspiration was your time spent living in San Francisco and frequenting the Bay Area’s many excellent coffee bars. Tell us more about that.
Coffee is San Francisco is a different vibe. Henrys has an incredible Turkish coffee and Peats has delicious drip coffee that tastes of chocolate.
