What Makes a Delicious Cup of Coffee?

“The coffee flavor manifests its characteristics through the land, the elements, and from the hearts of the people all along its way.” – Eva

Within the coffee industry, there are many ways to describe the flavors of coffee. Hints of caramel, chocolate, or wine. Undertones of nuts, figs, or flowers. It’s subjective. Hyper-marketing, high-end branding, changing packages, Eco labeling and fancy descriptors cannot capture the living narrative of all that is coffee. It’s complicated and, like any relationship, it takes time to get to know the true heart of coffee and the people, all along its way, that will ultimately impact its spirit and flavor.

We had one of the best cups of coffee after dinner with friends one evening: it was their interpretation of “cowboy coffee,” without the campfire, the stars, or dusty roads. No mention of flavor notes. They brought out an old pan from their cupboard, ground some of our fresh roasted beans & added them to the tepid filtered water. Bringing it to just below the boiling point, they dropped an ice cube in to sink the coffee grounds – at just the right moment. Simple. Perfect. Delicious. Few memories can compare to that most wonderful cup of coffee, that day, with friends.

Keep things simple – A French Press or an AeroPress are a few of our favorite gadgets for brewing coffee. A Berky water filter is a good choice if you need to filter your water. All are easy to use, make delicious coffee and pack nicely for traveling or hiking.

We invite you to experience coffee in the ways that work best for you to fully enjoy. We think that YOU are the true experts of the coffee you choose to buy and how you choose to brew it – no matter its descriptors.
