Fresh Roasted Gourmet & Flavored Coffees
Not all coffees are the same, even Arabicas with the same name can be significantly different. For example, Guatemalan Antigua is a coffee type from the Antigua region of Guatemala; however, coffees with this name can vary dramatically depending on specific farm and method of processing. For example, machine dried coffees, versus naturally sun dried from the same region, have poor flavor, tasting like Robusta coffee. Additional quality affecting variables include fertilizers, ripeness, time of season, defects, etc.
Our coffees are 100% fine Arabica carefully selected from plantations around the world based on the following perimeters:
- Sample buying rather then type buying
- Less than 3% defects including broken beans
- Grade size at 80% on size 16
- Cupping profile exhibiting distinctive attribute in Acidity, Body, Flavor, and Aroma
- Shade trees for bird population and erosion control
- Limited and controlled use of inputs
- No child labor. Provision of childcare, schooling & medical facilities.
- Zero tolerance for green cherries
- Washing of coffee using traditional water separation and 100% sun drying.
- Fair Trade Practices
In summary, our coffees are the highest quality available. We are a member of the SCAA and ISO 9002 compliant. The compliance means that we follow procedures, which effect every aspect of our dealings with you from seed to cup in accordance with this international quality assurance program. Furthermore, we offer certified organics, rainforest alliance, eco-ok, and low-acidity coffees. All of our coffees are kosher certified coffees.
All of the following coffees are freshly roasted, packaged, and shipped within 24 hours.
Roasting and Packaging
Roast is the main or first characteristic to choose when selecting a coffee. The darker the roast the less true coffee flavor. In fact, the French roast, the darkest on the market, is so dark that the flavor is pronounced smoke with only slight hints of coffee. We understand that everyone has different taste; therefore, we offer 5 roast levels. Roast terminology differs throughout the American market. Therefore, please refer to the following roast classifications when ordering coffee.
Vienna/City Roast, 11-13 minute roast
Italian/Full City Roast, 13-15 minute roast
French Roast, 15-18 minute roast
Peak City Roast is the standard roast and our lightest roast. If you like lots of coffee flavor then this is the coffee for you. The Peak City roast is characterized by chestnut brown beans without surface oil. Note, if you do not specify a roast then we automatically ship this roast. This is the coffee roast that true coffee connoisseurs prefer. Consider steaks. (No offense intended toward the vegetarians out there.) The majority of people like medium done steaks. However, true steak aficionados like their steaks on the rare side for the most flavor, and then there are those people who prefer well-done smoky flavor over the steak flavor and thus order well-done.
Vienna Roast is a medium roast coffee and is characterized by dark brown color with small spots of oil on the bean's surface. If you are not sure of which roast to order or want something with a little more roast flavor than the peak city then this is your roast. Of course, we offer roast designated house blends. To try a good all-around Vienna roast just ask for the Vienna roast blend.
Italian Roast is a dark roast coffee and is characterized by dark brown color with rich amounts of oil on the bean's surface. If you want an extremely strong roast flavor while retaining a good amount of coffee flavor then this is the roast for you. Two of the best selling Italian roast blends are the Velvet Hammer Blend and Velvet Espresso Blend.
Dark Italian Roast is the extra dark roast coffee and is characterized by a very dark brown, almost black color with large amounts of oil on the bean's surface. Coffee flavor at this roast is 75% roast flavor and 25% coffee flavor. A good Dark Italian Roast is the Latte Blend, which makes a great drip, French style coffee or good espresso, Starbucks style espresso. Note: For small 6-8 oz. cup Italian/European style espresso, sweet and bright, order light roast espressos. For larger to-go cup, American style espresso drinks, chocolaty and rich, order dark roasts.
French Roast is the darkest roast coffee and probably the darkest coffee available in the world. It is characterized by black color with large amounts of oil on the bean's surface. Coffee flavor at this roast is 95% roast flavor and 5% coffee flavor. Sort of like drinking a cup of smoke with a coffee finish. For the best flavor, you should brew this coffee in a big basket brewer, which produces a more flavorful extraction. See brewing tips for more info. We really only roast one coffee to a 100% French roast. That's the French Roast blend. Of course, some of the bar blends include French roast beans to create complex flavors of toned-down lights.
After roasting, the coffees are packaged immediately in one-way valve bags, which allows coffee to degas without blowing apart the packaging. Did you know that fresh coffee packed in a can without a pressure release would blow the can apart within a week or two? That is why valve-packed coffees is so much better than canned or vacuumed-packed coffees, which have to sit for a week to degas and thus lose flavor. Oxidation is what kills great coffees. You probably have bitten and noticed that if you do not eat it quickly the white part begins to turn brown. This is the oxidation effect. Like an apple, banana, etc, coffee spoils with prolonged exposure to oxygen and heat/light. Opened packages of ground coffee retain good flavor for approx. one week, and whole bean retains good flavor for approx. two weeks. It is best to store coffee at room temperature and out of direct sunlight with as little oxygen exposure as possible. We do not recommend storing coffee in the freezer due to condensation on the inside of any package and odors.
Package Sizes Available
12 oz. bags
42 ct 1.5 oz. ground & pre-portioned
Private labeling is available at no or minimum cost. All bulk package sizes are available ground or whole bean. Custom blends are also available.

Blending is an ever-changing art where one creates a greater impression or feeling not found in the separate blend components. The key to creating a great blend is not by a recipe but by comparative cupping. Coffees with the same country origin name can differ from farm to farm and even harvest-to-harvest. Blending is truly an ever-changing art.
Another quality roaster trait is BAR, blending after roasting. Not all coffee blends can be roasted as a single batch. Depending on water content, bean hardness, and blend taste requirements, many coffee blends require multiple roasting batches and post-roast blending. For a good BAR blend, try the Roaster's Select blend.

First, let's cut through the pop American marketing. Espresso is just a method of brewing. I'll repeat that, espresso is just a method of brewing. Espresso actually means quickly or rapidly brewed coffee. However, espresso usually means a short concentrated and rapidly brewed coffee under intense pressure resulting in more extraction of coffee soluble, 25% versus 16-18% for standard infiltration or drip method, and thus a stronger, richer tasting coffee. In Italian homes it can also mean coffee brewed on the stove with a mocha pot. It is not a roast or variety of coffee plant. There are certain cultural standards for espresso and varying views for brewing espresso.

The majority of our fresh roasted decaffeinated coffees are decaffeinated in Hamburg, Germany using the CO2 Water Method, also called the Sparkling Water Process. Note: Swiss Water Process Decafs are available. First, bean moisture levels are raised to about 50% by soaking. Next the beans are exposed to carbon dioxide pressurized to 300 atmospheres and heated to about 158°F. The wet carbon dioxide then circulates through the beans dissolving caffeine and from there passes through a charcoal filter/extraction vessel which traps only the caffeine. The remaining flavored charged and caffeine-free water is then re-circulated back through the beans. During this final step, carbon dioxide is removed and the beans reabsorb lost flavor particles while drying. This method of decaffeinating uses no chemicals, retains coffee flavors, and removes the most caffeine. The only true disadvantage is there is no plant in the U.S.A.
