Powered by the perfect blend of passion, precision, and curiosity, Ferrufino House of Coffee is where knowledge and instinct unite.


Coffee is a seasonal fruit and we source it directly from origin in freshly harvested lots. We practice small production methods that allow us to scrutinize and perfect our processes. Attaining a perfect roast is an intuition, a smell, a sound, a slight change in color— it’s about careful attention to detail that comes through in every cup.

We believe that knowing the story behind your coffee—where it was grown, how it was processed, and who handled it along the way—is a powerful link from the cup to the wider world.

We aim to deliver the highest quality achievable in all aspects of our business, whether that be sourcing the most beautiful and wondrous coffees attainable or employing the most mindful and quality-focused practices possible.

Sourcing

Sourcing green coffee is at the heart of what we do at Ferrufino House of Coffee. It is meticulous and essential work. Processing methods,varieties, growing altitudes, climate, soil and farm conditions are a few of the many factors that shape and determine a coffee’s overall quality. Being present at origin allows us to see these factors first hand and ultimately, helps us determine the best expression of each coffee we work with.

Roasting

Great roasting is about drawing the flavor notes within each coffee bean, while not obscuring them. Ferrufino House of Coffee practice roasting in small batches, 2-3 lbs at a time. Each coffee has a bespoke roast profile, so the temperature and length of the roast are perfect for each coffee origin.

 

Air Roasting. Tasting the Difference.

Ferrufino House of Coffee Austin, TX Coffee Roasters

We air roast our coffee beans on a fluid bed of hot air. This improves the coffee’s quality and flavor by removing the outer skin of the beans, known as chaff, before it settles. As the bean expands, the particles of chaff are literally blown away before they can tarnish the bean. Coffee is usually roasted in a steel drum with the beans tumbling against the hot metal interior. The Chaffs are highly combustible and can sometimes burn up in the drum along with the beans. These mixtures of burnt chaff and coffee beans can leave you with a sour feeling in your stomach and that jittery feeling sometimes associated with drinking too much coffee.

In our Air Roaster process, the chaff is continually removed as the beans float on air, roasting evenly on all sides and guaranteeing a clean, consistent roast every time.

Air Roasted Coffee is less bitter and acidic while providing a smoother, richer taste. You can taste the difference in every cup. We Air Roast our coffee daily in small batches to ensure the highest quality and freshness.
