WHY DID WE SELECT THIS COFFEE?
This month we chose to offer a very different coffee than we usually do in the Fruity Profile. This coffee is not from an African country and it is not a washed-process coffee; which is what we almost always have in the Fruity Profile. However, the flavors in this coffee are perfect for the fruity profile. This is an amazing coffee with complex fruit and floral notes.

HOW DID WE ROAST THIS COFFEE?
This coffee is being roasted by Ian T. from Oct 11 to Nov 01 2020 at Pulley Collective in Red Hook, Brooklyn. We typically use the Probat UG-22 roaster for this profile. We have strict guidelines for each of the coffee profiles, and this roast has to pass the development time ratio test as measured in real-time by the roasting software, Cropster. Once it does, it is approved for production.
We perform Quality Control via a process of coffee tasting called cupping on all of our production roasts twice a week at our facility in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Cupping is attended by Q-certified cupper Ian T., roaster Dave H.and founder Suyog M. All coffees are evaluated on a scoring scale of 0 to 3.
- 3.0 = exceptional roast - exceeds expectations
- 2.5 = on par with profile - matches expectations
- 2.0 = good roast, but 1 or 2 elements could be improved - needs improvement
- 1.5 or lower = failed - do not ship
