    To develop our blend we start with fresh coffee samples, we roast them in our 20's Probat sample roaster then line them up on the cupping table, we look for coffee that has a good deal of natural sweetness, we may find tropical fruit note in a Colombian, citrus in a Burundi or dark fruity chocolate & creamy body in a Brasil. 

    When the coffee lands we work out a suitable roasting profile, then roast fresh every day, Monday to Friday. 

    We find our espresso best from the 5th day to 2 weeks after roasting so buy little & buy often.
