Single origin vs blend. How do I choose?
Single origin coffee comes from a specific geographical area. The conditions under which it is grown and processed in the region create a unique flavor for that coffee. Blends are developed to maintain a certain flavor profile. Coffee is a seasonal crop, so the blend components are subject to change over time while the flavor is maintained. Bottom line: a blend is good if you like predictability and consistency, but if you like to explore new flavors, check out some of our single origins.
What's the difference between regular coffee, and espresso?
The coffees listed under Espresso were specifically roasted and developed to taste great using an espresso machine. Feel free to be daring and brew them however you'd like.
HOW DOES NITRO COFFEE DIFFER FROM COLD BREW?
Cold brew is served still (no bubbles) and is great served over ice. Nitro coffee is kegged under a greater pressure of nitrogen, which is forced into the liquid. It is served from a stout faucet where the nitrogen is drawn out of the liquid creating a cascading cup with a creamy mouthfeel.
How often do you roast?
We roast multiple days per week, and we aim to pack and ship or deliver most coffee either on the same day or the next day. We do not roast or ship on the weekends.
What is the best way to brew my coffee?
There are a variety of brew methods that you can choose from to make a great cup of coffee. Visit our brewing guide to get more info on some of our favorites.
Do you flavor the coffee?
We do not flavor any of the coffee. The flavors you see next to "Tasting Notes" simply describe subtle flavors that are present in the coffee.
How should I measure my coffee for brewing?
Many people are accustomed to measuring coffee in "scoops," but the best way to determine how much coffee to use is by weight. Use a digital scale to measure both the coffee and water and follow the ratios defined in our brewing guide. As always, adjust according to taste.
How should I store my coffee?
Keep your coffee at room temperature, in an airtight container and away from direct sunlight. Keeping coffee in the refrigerator will reduce it's natural moisture and mute flavors and aromas (and may cause it to take on other unintended flavors).
