As a member of the United States Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership, the company is operated on 100% renewable energy, the first U.S. coffee roaster to do so. Batdorf was awarded by the State of Washington for excellent environmental practices in 2002, and along with other Northwest entities who created the Western Washington Green Power Campaign, was awarded by the EPA in 2007 for their green energy promotion. Batdorf coffee is also triple-certified (Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance shade-grown, and organic).
In 2015, the company announced it would be expanding retail operations to the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The company also had a second roasting operation in Atlanta and retail outlet in Decatur, Georgia as of 2004.
