Single-origin coffee is sourced from a specific area or region in various countries. These origin names are derived from a particular farm(s) or small group(s) of neighboring farms. Single-origin coffees are unique because the characteristics of the regions’ soil, altitude, climate, etc. all influence the flavor of the beans giving each brew nuanced flavors and a distinctive taste that captures the uniqueness of their origins. We highly encourage you to try the unique flavors of the single origin coffees we offer.

According to legend, an Ethiopian shepherd named Kaldi became aware of the effects of caffeine. He observed that his goats became playful and energetic after eating coffee cherries. Coffee beans come from a genus of flowering plants called Coffea. Their seeds are used to make coffee. All coffee in the world grows in the Equatorial/Subtropical regions, also known as the Bean Belt. The main coffee growing regions are Central and South America, Indonesia, and Africa.
We use Arabica coffee. Arabica coffee is a higher-grade coffee and it is consumed by 70% of the world. Robusta coffee is a lower grade coffee but has 50% more caffeine than Arabica. It is consumed by 30% of the world.
Washed coffee is a wet method that results in bright clean flavors. The stages in processing include depulping the coffee cherries, putting the coffee in fermentation tanks to loosen the remaining fruit, and drying the coffee. Natural processed is a dry method that results in a sweeter taste. The stages in processing include drying the cherries with the flesh of the fruit and then removing the seed by Millstone or hand-hulling the coffee.

To brew a delicious cup of coffee, we recommend choosing the appropriate grind size for your brewer.
If you grind too fine, your brew can over extract and have a bitter taste. However, if you grind too coarse, the coffee may not extract enough and will taste thin and possibly sour. Experiment with your grinder and brew method to see what you like.
Contact Us for any grind questions. We are here for you.
