Never wavering from our principle of quality and sustainability first, we only import specialty-grade 100% Arabica coffee beans, straight from the farms around the world that we have relationships with and understand their growing process.
We sample roast and "cup" prior to our green coffee purchases. Only coffees that pass our rigorous standards are selected. Although we are sensitive to the movement toward sustainably grown coffees, we will only purchase them if they meet our exacting standards.
To help us with our goal to obtain high quality estate coffees, we work with initiatives that help growers and roasters create transparent partnerships and personal relationships.
This verifiable supply chain of sustainably grown coffee allows us to purchase micro-lots directly from the farmer. Freshness and quality are evident when you look at our freshly roasted beans.
Compare and you will see the difference! The proof is in the cup! We invite you to experience what sets us apart!
Our Proprietary Roasting Process
Roasting is an art and a means for developing flavor. Many variables affect each roast. The coffee's growing region, climate, soil conditions, plant treatments and processing techniques all play a key role in the coffee's flavor. Coffee roasting is an intricate dance between, heat, airflow, temperature and time, requiring the roaster's focused attention to achieve the desired results.
Our Master Roaster's years of experience and trained senses and keen instinct brings out the best in each of our coffees.
We roast in small batches without the aid of computerized profilers. Roasting with a computer can help replicate a roast, but the art and soul of the coffee will be missing. This hands on method allow us to listen, smell and view the beans throughout the roasting process.
The cornerstone of our business is our well seasoned cast iron, gas fired, Probat coffee roaster. This custom made workhorse, built to our roaster's exact specs, has unique features and capabilities allowing him to create amazing results with maximum control.
