We're big on quality. Small batch roasted, as close to shipping as possible, highest quality beans, socially responsible sourcing. This is the goodest stuff.
Sourcing of Coffee:
We work to find only responsibly, sustainably, and ethically sourced beans. This means we look into the grower and try to get to know their story. We try to avoid corporate owned farms and prefer family owned farms or coops. We tend to order organic coffees but in order to assure quality, we will always order the best bean for the job. When it comes to the coffee, we only order specialty grade beans.
Specialty Grade Coffee:
We order only specialty grade beans, which is the highest rating coffee can get. To be specialty grade the coffee must be almost entirely free of defects and standout in one attribute. You can learn more at the link below: http://www.coffeeresearch.org/coffee/grade.htm
We change the origin(s) of the blend from time to time as small lots of high quality products come in and out of availability. Our goal is to keep the taste profile of the coffee consistent over time.
Benchwarmer Brew Coffee is small batch roasted. The beans you order have been roasted close to shipping to assure maximum freshness. Once opened, we suggest consuming the beans within 2-3 weeks for ideal taste.
Whole Beans/Ground Beans:
When ordering the coffee beans, you can choose to have the beans come to you whole, or pre-ground. Whenever beans are ground, some of the oils start to deteriorate faster. For the best cup of coffee, we suggest ordering whole beans and grinding them yourselves with a "Burr Mill Grinder."
