Roast Profiles:

We focus on roasting our coffees based off of their region and harvest properties. We like to continuously experiment and push the boundaries of lighter roasted profiles while modulating a clean depth and balance through the cup and into the finish.

  • This profile we take slightly further out from first crack bringing it a to lighter medium profile that boasts a smooth cocoa and spice quality throughout the cup while allowing a soft citrus quality in it's cooling of the cup.

  • Currently we are brewing on V60, Chemex and Siphon. Primarily at a 1:15 ratio.
