Do you offer organic coffee?
Yes, sort of. The majority of our coffee when purchased is organic and fair trade but in order to advertise that, we need to jump through some hoops and get the proper inspections. That is on our list of things to do! Until then, feel free to message us to find out which coffees were purchased as organic.
Do you offer espresso beans?
Your coffees list the Process Method. What does that mean?
There are 7 different methods of processing beans, getting them from the cherry to the green bean state we receive them. They are washed, natural, honey, wet-hulled, brazil natural, pulped natural, and decaf. The two most common are washed and natural and that is what you will usually see listed on our bean profiles. We have roasted honey and will have fun experimenting and offering you some specialty roasts to try. Keep watching!
Washed (or Wet Process) typically remove the fruit within 24 hrs of harvest. They are then depulped in fermentation tanks for 12-72 hrs. They are dried mechanically for 18-36 hrs or 7-15 days on patios, raised beds or in parabolic dryers. This process creates clean, articulate flavours; caramel or sugary sweetness; wide spectrum of fruit acidity depending on other factors; capable of bright, crisp notes.
Natural (sun-dried or dry process) removes the fruit after drying. Fermentation occurs inside the fruit mucilage (the flesh of the coffee fruit) surrounding the seed and under the pulp. It will take place as long as there is fuel available to the microorganisms. (eg. sugar, water, acids, etc). Drying time is up to 30 days. This process creates noticeably fruity or pulpy flavours, often described as "boozy" or "winey"; can also have strong nutty and/or chocolate characteristics, and typically has a heavier or syrupy body.
Does it matter how I brew my coffee?
There are so many factors to making an amazing cup of coffee. Honestly, the quality and freshness of your coffee will make the biggest difference to start. There are some good drip coffee makers out there that will satisfy the majority of people. Other popular brew methods are using a french press, a pour over option like the Chemex or an espresso type brew without the machine using an Aeropress.
There are other factors that play into the way coffee ends up tasting. Like water temperature, the way the coffee is ground, quality of water used, the way the coffee is stored, or even how often the coffee machine is cleaned. Find what works for you and enjoy! And don't hesitate to contact us with questions, we are here to help you get the best cup of joe possible.
