What is Specialty Coffee?
Specialty coffee is rated 80 or higher on a scale from 0-100 by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA).
How is it Defined?
Coffee is judged by its attribute descriptors such as flavor, aroma, aftertaste, acidity, body shape, balance, cleanness of the cup, defects, mouthfeel, and sweetness. Origin and other important cultivation factors play a key role as well.
Our products are fair trade and sourced following a strict set of rules that ensure attention to the living conditions of small farmers and are produced with sustainable environmental practices.
