IT ALL STARTS AT THE COFFEE FARM
This coffee was collected from small farms nearby the Roteps washing station where it is milled and dried. Trucks from Roteps are sent out to retrieve bags of coffee cherry for milling each day during the harvest over rugged terrain. The fresh coffee cherries must be delivered quickly to preserve their flavor. This coffee’s exceptional quality is testament to the talent and hard work of the farmers and millers associated with Roteps.

HOW DID WE ROAST THIS COFFEE?
This coffee is being roasted by Dave H. from Aug 16 to Sep 06 2020 at Pulley Collective in Red Hook, Brooklyn. We typically use the Loring S35 Kestrel roaster for this profile - this roaster roasts the beans through convection (heated air) roasting. 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
