We don’t serve your grandmother’s 7 o”clock coffee or your company’s Keurig pods. We’ve previously talked about how you shouldn’t settle for stale or bitter coffee. We take great pride in the fact that we use only single-origin Arabica beans for our coffees. We also do our own roasting of the beans in house. This ensures you always have fresh coffee when in our store or when you buy our beans.
Coffee roasting is a combination of art and science. Applying heat to a green coffee bean is what extracts those delicious aromas, oils, and flavors. While a blanket approach may work for many things, to achieve the best flavors in roasting coffees, each individual origin should be looked at differently. Taking one region’s coffee to a darker roast may not bring out the best of that bean’s attributes. And certain coffees need to be roasted longer to bring out the best flavor profile and tasting notes.
Much talk is made of blonde roasts, but often this is more marketing than the actual roast level. Most of the time these roasts are actually a medium roast rather than the lighter roast proclaimed. We have several single-origin beans that we roast to a medium level (we don’t call it a blonde roast). At these roast levels, these coffees shine brightly. They are flavorful and highlight the tasting profiles of that particular single origin.
Likewise, many of our single origins are better when they are roasted darker. We don’t over roast our beans, so you won’t find any of them bitter. But often a darker roast is better for espresso and pour-overs.
We carry seven different single-origin coffee beans from different regions and have experimented with different roast levels for each to determine what we feel is the optimum roast level for each. We also have an espresso blend for our espresso drinks which we roast to a level which makes it great for a stand-alone espresso or in a latte or cappuccino.
Regardless of your tastes, we have a fresh roasted coffee that will exceed your expectations. If you haven’t tried fresh roasted coffee, you’ll be pleased by the taste difference from something stale that’s been on a store shelf for months. If you have had fresh roasted coffee, we welcome you to try ours and see the difference that our experience and roasting makes.
