Our philosophy is to maximize value by focusing on sourcing flavor profiles and quality aligned from producer to barista. We achieve this through long term partnerships with importers, such as Cafe Imports (17 years) and Royal Coffee (10 years), who also own their own warehouses, further streamlining the supply chain.
Experimental small batch roasts are our specialty - our roasting is purely an extension of our sourcing. We strive to bring out the natural profiles of our coffees by finishing the wonderful work our producers started. Our amazing producers started the work, we're just applying the finishing touch!
We cup each coffee as a team to determine the best characteristics of the coffee and make sure you're getting the best possible iteration of beans we can create. When evaluating coffees, we often reference the Coffee Taster’s Flavor Wheel to better describe flavor attributes using language from the Sensory Lexicon (link here!).
This is where the magic happens. We are using top of the line equipment to make our coffee - our espresso machine from Sanremo is BOMB. Everything from the choice of milk (and alternative milks) to the style of glass and serving tray is considered. Our awesome staff is trained to make you the best shot of espresso, cup of coffee, or specialty drink you've ever had!
