Specialty Coffee

Some people like bitter coffee, but people are increasingly consuming specialty coffees.

Once you understand the flavors and aromas, you can open up your palate to a new experience that makes it difficult to return to the traditional bitter coffees. Keeping in mind that the basic premise for specialty coffee is:

The Best Cup of Coffee is The One You Like

 

The ABC's Of Specialty Coffee

Specialty Coffee, also known as Third Wave Coffee, is an industry that has been growing steadily over the past 10 years. It consists of specially selected coffee beans that are usually brought to a medium roast, which highlights the natural fruity and sweet notes with NO chemicals added.

Companies selling lower quality coffees tend to burn their beans to mask unwanted flavors of their ingredients, which usually consist of onions, potatoes, hay, wet grass, dirt, garlic, cucumber, and peas. Specialty coffees are not as bitter as regular coffees - there may be a hint of bitterness in the cup that you taste, but it is not the dominating note.

We advise our farms on the Specialty Coffee Association of America's (SCAA) best practices and high standards so that you always receive the cup of coffee possible.
