The coffee you enjoy each day has taken a long journey to arrive in your cup.
Between the time they’re planted, picked, and purchased, coffee beans go through a typical series of steps to bring out their best.

- Processing the Cherries
- Drying the Beans
- Milling the Beans
- Exporting the Beans
- Tasting the Coffee

It takes years of training to become an expert roaster with the ability to “read” the beans and make decisions with split-second timing. The difference between perfectly roasted coffee and a ruined batch can be a matter of seconds. Roasting is both an art and a science.
Roasting brings out the aroma and flavor that is locked inside the green coffee beans. Beans are stored green, a state in which they can be kept without loss of quality or taste. A green bean has none of the characteristics of a roasted bean — it’s soft and spongy to the bite and smells grassy.
Roasting causes chemical changes to take place as the beans are rapidly brought to very high temperatures. When they reach the peak of perfection, they are quickly cooled to stop the process. Roasted beans smell like coffee, and weigh less because the moisture has been roasted out. They are crunchy to the bite, ready to be ground and brewed.
we offer coffees that are freshly harvested to ensure the most vibrant and transparent flavours possible. we love coffees that have great aroma, sweetness, and clean acidity. creating the best coffee experiences in the world while helping farmers achieve more value is what drives us. we roast daily and focus on sustainability from seed to cup.
