Frequently asked questions

What is your sourcing and roasting philosophy?

We work with responsible importers and exporters to source the best green beans from around the world. In sourcing, we recognize that coffee is an agricultural product and therefore we only purchase green coffee from recently-harvested crops at sustainably-run farms. We also attempt to select green coffee both on the intrinsic taste profile of the green beans and the quality of the location, which for us means attempting to purchase green coffee with inherently high sweetness and low acidity. 


Our roasting philosophy is simple: to highlight the natural flavor and sweetness present in each of our green coffee selections. To accomplish this goal, we stay on top of current industry trends and implement robust processes and controls to ensure quality and consistency.


In practice, we use a profile-based roasting methodology, meaning we utilize different parameters depending on each green bean’s unique characteristics. These characteristics can include process method, moisture percentage, and size. The end product usually results in what most customers consider a medium roast (City+ to Full City+). We believe this color allows for full development, which eliminates unpleasant acidity, while keeping the beans from becoming over-roasted, which can replace the unique flavor of each bean with a more generic taste profile.


If you have any other questions surrounding our coffee, we would encourage you send them to us via the contact form on this website, or stop into our store in Dallas, TX and ask them in person!
