- There is something to be said about roasting in smaller batches to ensure quality and consistency. By roasting less than 50 lbs of coffee beans it is easier to control the roasting process and to make sure that all of the coffee beans get a similar roast. It is easier to keep the beans moving and to see most of the beans in the batch. Small batch roasting leads to a certain level of superior quality control that cannot be matched in larger batches.
- A secondary benefit to small batch roasting is that it significantly reduces the amount of time between roasting and packaging to be shipped. For example, if a large batch (say 200 lbs) of dark french roasted coffee beans is roasted but only 50 lbs sell per day, the last 50 lbs to sell will be 4 days old already. Our coffee is roasted after you order to ensure freshness.
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. 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.
All of our coffee is specialty grade. All of our single origin coffee is 100% Specialty Grade Arabica Coffee Beans. The only products that contains Specialty Grade Robusta coffee beans is our 6Bean blend, Cowboy Blend, Italian, French and Breakfast Blend+. The reason for this is for added caffeine and to improve the crème in those blends that have it. Green coffee is generally graded via visual inspection. This involves taking a 350g sample of green coffee beans and counting defective beans. Defects can be Primary (e.g. black beans, sour beans) or Secondary (e.g. broken beans). For a coffee to qualify as “specialty”, it must have zero Primary defects and less than five Secondary defects. We believe there is something to be said about roasting in smaller batches to ensure quality and consistency. Our coffee is roasted in less than 20lbs batches of coffee beans. It has been proven that by roasting coffee this way, it is easier to control the roasting process and to make sure that all of the coffee beans get a similar roast. Small batch roasting allows the beans to keep moving and to able to see most of the beans in the batch. When you pair Specialty Grade coffee and Small Batch Roasting this leads to a certain level of superior quality control that cannot be matched in larger batches.
Most roasters have specialized names for their favored roasts and there is very little industry standardization. This can cause some confusion when you’re buying, but in general, roasts fall into one of four color categories — light, medium, medium-dark and dark.
Many consumers assume that the strong, rich flavor of darker roasts indicates a higher level of caffeine, but the truth is that light roasts actually have a slightly higher concentration.
The perfect roast is a personal choice that is sometimes influenced by national preference or geographic location. Within the four color categories, you are likely to find common roasts as listed below. It’s a good idea to ask before you buy. There can be a world of difference between roasts.
