SPECIALTY COFFEE ROASTING COMPANY

As a specialty roastery, we prefer not to go beyond the medium roast as we believe that going darker could compromise the pleasant aroma and complexity of the coffee. We believe that this mindset respects all the hard work the farmers and producers have done to create a coffee that truly excels and deserves to be classed in the specialty coffee range.

At the moment, our company is dealing only with single origin but may create a coffee blend in the future.

WHY DO WE CHOOSE A SINGLE ORIGIN OVER BLENDING?

We choose a single-origin coffee over a blend as we get a better understanding of the characteristics and peculiarity of each bean and region. Proceeding with a single origin is more likely to respect the seasonality and freshness of green coffees, which all add to the quality of the end product. Single origins will create a kind of map of flavours in our mind allowing us to navigate our taste preferences which can even throw us into an unexpected land to be discovered.

WHY DO COFFEE ROASTERS BLEND?

The coffee blend has mainly a commercial purpose. Coffee is a plant, and as a plant, it has its cycle; this is why you can’t have the same coffee all year round as they come and go out of season. Factors like weather, disease and general fluctuations in the quality of plants can affect production. A crop that is exceptional one year can be ordinary the following year if one or more of these factors come into play. Roasters need to find a way to achieve a consistent tasting coffee and cannot always rely on using the beans from the same farms or co-operatives. Considering that every single coffee has a different flavour, how can I achieve it?

THE ANSWER IS TO BLEND

By mixing different coffees to create a profile that can be consistent over and over by just swapping the one bean with another that matches closely. By doing this you will give the impression that the coffee never changes and preserve the same characteristics with minor differences

Whatever is your preference we just hope you to drink a nice cup!
