Bean Journey

SOURCING


Our aim is to source the best quality green coffee we can in the most sustainable, social and environmental way.
We invest a lot of time into the process of sourcing and are continually working on how we approach green coffee. We work with Genuine  Origin in order to secure the best coffee beans possible. By sharing information and collaborating together, we can help to add value to the whole process and this ultimately means we are paying fair trade for quality coffee beans. We only work with coffee importers who share our values and methodology and who have extensive relationships with the coffee producers of the coffee we buy. We recognize the complexities of sourcing quality green coffee with mindfulness to social and environmental impact and understand that many days will be a work in progress and a learning curve.

 

 

ROASTING

 As coffee roasters we are responsible for translating a coffees unique taste and heritage. We use our hard earned expertise to achieve this, founded on the framework of education and trial and error.

Our goal is to showcase the care, craft and hard work of the coffee’s producer; whether this is an individual farmer, a washing station or a cooperative; we are the intrinsic link in the sensory chain. We use air roasting technology  as well as traditional methods, to carefully monitor the roast curve, development time and total roast time.

By controlling these factors and understanding the raw material we can achieve varied degrees of flavor and profiles to bring out the best characteristics of every coffee we roast. By the end of a roasting week, after every batch has been quality tested, the green beans that began their journey  have been roasted with care and attention and will make their way to coffee drinkers throughout the Texas and the rest of the country.  Roasting can be long hours of tough work, but we love what we do and wouldn’t trade it for anything else!
