#1 Friday Coffee Roasters & Crosswalk Coffeehouse

#1 Friday Coffee Roasters & Crosswalk Coffeehouse

A specialty coffee roaster in New Braunfels, TX - opened in 2018, after experimenting with roasted coffee at home a few years prior. Shannon uses her grandfather's art on my labels. (frankhigginsart.com) And her grandmother's coffee cups are used to test each roast. "There are many studies proclaiming the health benefits of coffee, but I just know it lifts my spirits. And I hope it lifts your too!" Shannon was featured on the "Stump the Roaster" Panel at the trade show, Coffee Fest, last summer. She is a bright star in the Texas coffee constellation.

 

  1. Honduras Finca La Unica - Natural Process - This coffee is of the Parainema/Catuaiis variety and is processed by the natural or dry method which leaves the entire coffee cherry in-tact on the bean to dry in the sun, allowing the beans to draw in all the flavors of the fruit, mucilage and parchment layers. Leticia Lopez Hutchins, a 5th generation coffee farmer owns Finca La Unica, a 50 acre farm in the Cartagua, Copan region near Mount Tenan, situated at an altitude of 1,400 m.a.s.l. This women owned farm, is home to rare microlots, and is Certified Organic, Bird Friendly, and Fair Trade. Try this densely fruity treat - complexly loaded with notes of strawberry and peach.
  2. El Salvador - Finca Santa Isabel - This direct trade coffee of the Bourbon and Pacas varieties is produced on the Santa Isabel farm located on the northern part of the San Miguel volcano. The 319 acre farm sits at an altitude of 2,500-4,000 m.a.s.l. and benefits from a very stable rainfall (78.7 in/year), shade from Ingas Laurel trees, and volcanic soil to produce coffee with a rich body, medium acidity and a smooth pleasant flavor. The processing method is washed, meaning that the entire coffee cherry is removed prior to drying the bean. Enjoy a lovely floral fragrance which embraces a sweet citrus and notes of cane sugar.

  3. Indonesia Sumatra Mandheling (Dark Roast) - Grown on the lofty volcanic slopes of Mount Leuser near the port of Padang, in the Batak region of west-central Sumatra at an altitude of 900-1,600 m.a.s.l., these beans of the Catimor, Typica variety are processed via a method unique to Indonesia. Called Giling Basah or wet-hulling, the coffee is sun dried afterward, creating a distinctive signature flavor. Sumatra is generally very well known for full-bodied flavor that is exceptionally earthy, rich, and complex. Dark-roasted, this coffee offers strong notes of cedar, sweet tobacco, chocolate and spices. Has a notable winey acidity while remaining consistent and balanced.
  4. Ethiopia LImu - Ethiopian heirloom varietals are chosen from the forest and transplanted to small gardens, adding a layer of selection to the incredible complexity available among wild coffee plants. Farmers hand-sort for unripe and overripe cherries. Coffee is pulped with a 5-disc Aagaarde pulper and wet fermented for 24 to 36 hours. This Limu coffee comes from the southwestern parts of Ethiopia, in the region of Tega village, Bonga, Kibo, Kaffa - grown at grown at altitudes of up to 2000 m.a.s.l The washed method of processed presents a clean and sweet taste profile. Citric flavors with lemon, toffee and mild floral flavors abound in this remarkable brewed beverage.

#5 Colibri Mountain Coffee

#5 Colibri Mountain Coffee

Hola! We are Maria and Jimmy, the two-person team behind Colibri Mountain Coffee. We work together to source some of Colombia’s best coffees and roast them in small batches in San Antonio to create a one-of-a-kind coffee experience. Our formal training and network of friends enables us to identify and curate our coffee portfolio based on clear and distinctive taste profiles. We started roasting on a San Franciscan SF-6 in our home garage but have since moved our production to a larger facility. Please come and say hi to the new kids on the block! Today’s tasting menu includes the following:

 

  1. Santa Maria - A heightened experience of an everyday cup of coffee to fuel early morning risers and late-night hustlers alike. We source this blend of washed Castillo and Caturra varieties from a group of disciplined farmers in Santa Maria, a small town near the Nevado del Huila National Park. An active volcano keeps the soils fertile with rich minerals that give this coffee its silky body, rich chocolate taste, and a bright accent of sweet tangerine.
  2. Soulflower  - This red honey-processed, yellow bourbon is a bright cocktail of yellow fruits, with tasting notes of goldenberry, pineapple and chardonnay. We source this coffee from Edwin Noreña, a scientist by training and alchemist in soul, who produces this coffee in his Finca Campo Hermoso in Circacia, Quindio.
  3. Award-Winning Cold Brew - We brew our Santa Maria coffee for 20 hours in cold water to produce a smooth, naturally sweet and refreshing beverage that does not need cream, sugar or artificial sweeteners to taste good. We won third place at the US Cold Brew Championships that took place at the Coffee Fest national tradeshow in San Antonio in June 2021 with this recipe.

#6 Resurgence Coffee

#6 Resurgence Coffee

Resurgence Coffee intertwines faith, passion and coffee, in hopes of leaving just a lineament of His character, whether through a cup or conversation. We are four friends who came together with a dream to open our own coffee business with the intention of connecting with others in our community as well as giving back. We have a passion to make sure we provide the best coffee possible without compromising taste and quality. We also love our community of San Antonio and want to give back to local organizations that provide assistance to those in need. We are excited for the journey ahead of us to begin providing you with organic, fair-trade coffee that is locally roasted just for you.

 

  1. Oaxaca - This coffee produced on the high altitude southern slopes of the central mountains in the southern state of Oaxaca, Mexico is particularly distinguished for its light body. The term “body” refers to the mouthfeel of the coffee, or the weight/viscosity of the coffee on the tongue. Just as grapes in a wine, where a bean was grown, roast levels and the brew method can all affect the body of a coffee. The traditional method of processing in Oaxaca is fully washed, meaning all of the coffee cherry is removed prior to the sun-drying process commencing. Ours is medium-roasted to emphasize the sweet notes of orange-citrus, slight hints of brown sugar and cocoa.
  2. Guatemala - A glistening jewel of the Central American coffee industry, Guatemalan coffee is grown in almost perfect climate conditions which creates a world-class bean and is deservedly praised for its full body, complex flavor profile, and gentle acidity that has hypnotized the world over. The Pour Over brewing method is particularly effective, producing a fabulous full-bodied cup. Ours is a medium roast. The winey aspect of this coffee is particularly interesting. Named for the flavor profile of a great red wine, winey flavors in coffee indicate a good balance of acidity/fruitiness with smooth body. Look for sweet citric tart, chamomile, pear, citrus/lemon, stone fruit, and chocolate notes!

#7 Tierras Planas Roasters

#7 Tierras Planas Roasters

Tierras Planas Roasters wants to bring delicious coffee into your home to savor and enjoy, just like the memories you’ll make whilst drinking. It is our mission to produce the highest quality roasted coffee beans, in the most sustainable manner, and share a blessing with every cup. When founder Kerry Mayfield’s job, as a plant breeder, took him on worldwide travels, he discovered, tasted, and appreciated the many different ways to roast, brew, and use coffee around the world. After tasting one of the most flavorful cups of coffee he ever had, Kerry purchased his own roaster to bring that taste to family and friends. That desire to brew the “perfect cup” transformed into Tierras Planas Roasters, thus beginning his family’s passion to bless others, bring people together, and reignite a “sit down and visit” culture. Tierras Planas Roasters wants to bring delicious coffee into your home to savor and enjoy, just like the memories you’ll make whilst drinking. It is our mission to produce the highest quality roasted coffee beans, in the most sustainable manner, and share a blessing with every cup.

 

  1. Ethiopia Bombe - Our Ethiopian coffee, grown in the Bombe mountains in Sidamo, in southern Ethiopia, brings floral tones couples with fruity notes with a hint of vanilla and caramel. Different brewing methods alter the taste profile of the brewed coffee. Brewed as a pour over or drip makes a refreshingly balanced cup; Brewed as an espresso, makes a very lively cup with bright floral and berry tones. This coffee is naturally processed, which means the red coffee cherry remains while the coffee dries - resulting in an explosion of fruit sweetness with sophisticated complexity.
  2. TPR Stout - Our Stout Blend is a preroast blend of three of our best selling coffees and produces an warming cup of Joe. This blend has smooth chocolate, light tobacco tones and finishes with a slight citric brightness. Pre-roast blending involves mixing up the green beans in the desired ratios and roasting all the beans in the blend together within the same batch, yielding the benefits of “inter-change” as beans give-off and take-in heat and flavors during the roast batch cycle.
  3. Espresso Blend 3.7 - Our Espresso Blend is a unique and exciting blend of our Ethiopian, Brazilian and Costa Rican coffees. Overall, this espresso blend brings a fruity and floral start with chocolate tones and a citrus brightness. Espresso roasts are roasted a little longer and a little hotter to increase the body and decrease the acidity - with the specific intention of it tasting good brewed as espresso, but it can be enjoyed in a wide variety of brewing methods, producing different taste profiles in each method.
  4. Costa Rica Calley Liles - Sourced from a microlot on Finca Calle Liles, a third-generation family-owned farm in the Central Valley of Costa Rica. A microlot typically refers to a traceable, exclusive green coffee that the farmer has produced through outstanding effort and great care. When a farmer offers a microlot, it typically represents the best of his crops. Our medium-roast offers a sweet and smooth cup with floral, berry, tropical fruit, berry, caramel, and cocoa tones. Especially great brewed as with an AeroPress, French Press, or Pour Over.

Market Blend contains: FTO Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, FTO Sumatra Mandheling , and FTO Colombia Sierra Nevada.
  4. Ellis County Blend - This blend attempts to re-create the broad palate and deep earthiness of Italy’s favorite café roasts by combining Sumatran varietals with bold, traditionally-processed Brazilian and the big, bright, classic taste of Colombia’s best. The mild acidity, broad mouth-feel and wine and chocolate undertones bring you the traditional taste of “Italy” deep in the heart of Texas! Ellis County Blend contains: Organic Brazil Santa Cristina, FTO Colombia Sierra Nevada, and FTO Organic Sumatra Mandheling.
  5. Day-to-Day Blend - This East Coast inspired breakfast-style blend takes its inspiration from the traditional City-Café roasts made popular in the American Diner.

#10 Scottie Dog Coffee Co

#10 Scottie Dog Coffee Co

We love coffee. Our business is fueled by our phenomenal love for coffee - not just any coffee, but freshly roasted premium coffee. We are the proud parents to 11 children. As you can imagine we drink a lot of coffee. We were so tired of just “ok” coffee. So, we began —how can the challenge of "ok” coffee be solved? We had this crazy belief that people should have the same quality coffee found in the best neighborhood coffee houses but without paying the high cost. The solution, sourcing the world's best, freshly roasted coffee beans. Dedicated to Quality - We offer the very best premium coffees from all over the world. Our trusted suppliers provide a wide selection of green coffee beans at a great price so that we can pass our low cost to our customers. The beans are air roasted for the freshest, highest quality coffee at any price.

 

  1. Guatemala Antigua - Due to the rich volcanic soil, high elevation, high humidity, rain, and generous shade from its lush tropical forests, Antigua is an ideal coffee producing area - yielding a hard bean with inherent consistency and rich taste attributes. Coffee has significantly helped fuel Guatemala's economy for over a hundred years. Today, 125,000 coffee producers drive Guatemala's coffee industry and coffee remains one of Guatemala's main exports. This coffee is world-renowned for the exquisite flavors of citrus, chocolate, and caramel.
  2. Espresso Blend - The "aim" of an espresso blend is to bring together various flavor components from different beans which will create a rich, well balanced beverage that can blend well with milk,” The ratios of the various beans is a true work of art. While espresso can be made from virtually any roast of coffee, it is often made from dark or medium roast coffees. Our special blend is medium bodied. It is Fair Trade Organic. Savor the crispness and toastiness of this blend laced with delicious dark chocolate note, and highlighted with rich low-key fruit tones.
  3. Ethiopia Yirgacheffe - The flavor and body of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee is truly unique. Yirgacheffe is a small region in southern Ethiopia where coffee plants grow naturally thanks to its thick vegetation, healthy soil, and high elevations. History attributes Ethiopia as coffee’s birthplace in 850 AD. As the legend goes, a young goat herder named Kaldi noticed increased energy and liveliness in his flock after munching on cherries; he gave the beans a try, noticed the effects, and the world’s infatuation with this intoxicating "elixir of the gods" had begun. We chose a Fair Trade Organic coffee. It is marvelously medium bodied with light lemon-lime floral notes. Come enjoy beans grown in the birthplace of coffee!
  4. Southern Pecan - This nutty and creamy coffee boast the aroma of pecan pie just like mom made during the holidays. It is by far the most popular southern flavored coffee we offer!

#11 Texas Grounds Coffee

#11 Texas Grounds Coffee

Meet Texas Grounds Coffee Company: Phil and Jen have lived in Texas for many years. As neighbors do, they got to talking and realized that they shared the same ambitions: to run a company that brings Texans together over a great cup of coffee. So, they made the leap and left their careers to pursue that goal! The Texas Grounds Coffee Company’s flagship location is in Helotes, Texas! Their love of Texas is apparent. The demand for their coffee is quickly growing. The next time you lift a freshly roasted cup to your lips, smile, knowing that you are supporting a dream.

 

  1. Republic - This Medium Roast is our own special blend of beans from Guatemala, Colombia, and Ethiopia. Our superb sample blend starts off chocolatey, and smoothly then transitions into a bright finish. Like a good wine, selecting different origins (types) of coffee on the basis of their unique characteristics (aroma, refinement, quality, persistence, body) then mixing them together makes it possible to enhance the different personalities (good qualities) of each one, while minimizing their faults.
  2. Come and Take it - Having the same blend of the three coffees in our Republic- from Guatemala, Colombia, Ethiopia - however this is a Dark Roast, as compared to the Republic's Medium Roast. What an excellent opportunity to compare and appreciate the increase in boldness that darker roasted coffees deliver. The visible color of the coffee beans is directly related to the caramelization of sugars that occur the longer they are exposed to heat. The darker the roast appears, the more caramelization has taken place in that coffee.
  3. The Outlaw - This decaffeinated medium roast hails from Brazil. Sweet & Nutty! Coffee beans grown in Brazil generally possess an intense sweetness in the form of caramel and chocolate notes, big bodies, and a relatively low acidity. Coffee is always decaffeinated in its green (unroasted) state. The process of decaffeinating is exceptionally challenging to separate only the caffeine while leaving the original concentrations of the other ~1,000 chemicals in a coffee bean that are important to the taste and aroma of this wonderfully complex elixir. The Outlaw definitely hits that mark!

#13 Quantum Coffee Roasters

#13 Quantum Coffee Roasters

Fidel and Diana Moreno, owners and operators of Quantum Coffee Roasters, are full time teachers in San Antonio - teaching Physics and Math, respectively. Besides having a passion for education, we also have a passion for finding the best green coffee that can be sourced and roasting it just right. Our Story: The Teacher becomes the Student - Anyone who knows me knows that I am a coffee lover. I just never realized that I was in love with bad coffee. One of my students introduced me to good coffee - and the true flavors that coffee had to offer - besides dark, darker, and darkest. I was immediately hooked on freshly roasted coffee that hadn't been burnt down to its carbon backbone. I was learning the science of how to roast my own coffee, and by the end of the school year, I’d purchased my student's espresso machine, grinder and roaster when he moved away to college. I gave away samples of my own roasted coffee and soon started selling it as the demand grew. Diana & I started up Quantum Coffee Roasters out of our kitchen, and with lots of love and attention to detail, we have turned it into a great little coffee roasting business. We love sharing our knowledge and passion for good coffee here in San Antonio, Texas USA!

 

  1. Colombia–Finca Vista Hermosa: Natural-Processed - The Finca Vista Hermosa coffee farm, located in Agua Dulce, Huehuetenango in northwest Guatemala, is a legacy of three generations of coffee lovers who have poured their hearts into these rich lands. Because we are situated in the highlands, our coffees are especially highly coveted, as coffee grown at a high altitude is capable of being more rich and flavorful, as the beans have ideal water and temperature levels, growing more slowly therefore have more time to develop complex sugars. Finca Vista Hermosa is ecologically sound and healthy, a model for many shade grown and organic plantations. This naturally processed bean has bright acidity and medium body. We roasted it medium to showcase the fruity, floral, stone fruit tones, balanced delicately with some dark chocolate flavors.

  2. Colombia–Finca Vista Hermosa: Honey-Process - Using the same green coffee as described above, a honey-process was instead applied when harvesting. Honey-process involves leaving the coffee cherry on the beans while drying, infusing the beans with an extra dose of fruity explosive flavor. See if you can taste the mild acidity and medium body of this coffee. We roasted it light/medium roast (darker roasts hide defects significantly better), so as to allow more nuances of tropical fruit notes of pineapple with a honey sweetness.

  3. El Salvador–Santa Isabel: Washed-Process - Santa Isabel coffee farms cover 210 acres in the Cacahuatique Mountains, El Salvador. In Mayan, Cacahuatique means, “hill covered in cocoa orchards”. The tradition of growing coffee has been in the family for four generations. For this coffee, we've chosen beans harvested using the washed method, which requires the cherry to be removed prior to drying. In this way, experts explain, the coffee itself can be experienced – the origin, the coffee variety, the terroir...not impacted of the flavors imparted from the cherry fruit drying with the bean. Explore the mild acidity and rich body of this medium roast. Enjoy the notes of chocolate, cola and citrus.

  4. El Salvador–Santa Isabel: Natural Process - Using the same green coffee as described above, these beans were naturally processed instead of washed at harvesting. A bolder taste - roasted just dark enough to be deliciously roasty, but not really dark, but with the same mild acidity and rich body. Retaining the notes of dark chocolate and citrus, additionally infused with fantastic fruitiness from the natural processing.

#15 Cafetto Specialty Coffee

Cafetto Specialty Coffee, a family company, is devoted to distributing specialty coffee: ensuring traceability and safety are of high-value and high-quality, in addition to the type of coffee, its origin and climatic aspects. Social work is also a very important focus for us. We strive to especially consider coffee which is produced/processed by women - most are mothers & heads of families and some displaced by violence and victims of the conflict. We endeavor to ensure they are paid a premium for their product, thus guaranteeing a continuous commercial link with the people in these communities. We offer two specialty coffees, with a rate score of 84+ points and this makes us very proud. Our goal is offer specialty coffees from different countries, thus having a diversity of coffees that clients can choose and opt for the one that most identifies themselves. We offer our product in different presentations from unroasted (green) coffee, roasted whole bean, ground and K-cups.

 

  1. Miraflores - The Miraflores farm is located in the Colombian Andes region of Colombia, near the forestal reserve of Paramo de Miraflores in Gigante, Huila, and features the Castillo and Red Bourbon varieties and is "Strictly High Grown" (SHG) coffee; coffees grown at high altitudes are capable of being more rich and flavorful, as the beans have ideal water and temperature levels, growing more slowly therefore have more time to develop complex sugars. Harvesting and processing is performed with meticulous care using a combination of traditional methods with renewed technology to guarantee the best flavors and characteristics possible. We've roasted this coffee medium-dark to showcase the floral fragrance. You can find some dark chocolate sweet flavors, along with notes of tangerine. This coffee has a creamy body and citric acidity.
  2. Palmerita - The Palmerita coffee farm is located in the Colombian Andes region of Colombia, blessed to be in the shade of plantain, chachafruto, guamo, and nogal trees in Gigante, Huila. This coffee is grown at high altitude of 1750 m.a.s.l. Cooperatives are very important to coffee farmers worldwide; the 82 farmers comprising Asociacion de Cafeteros El Desarrollo are proud collaborate to produce some of the best coffee in Colombia, as most pick and process their own coffee harvests. We've roasted this Medium. Enjoy seeking out the peach flavors, along with the delightful floral fragrance. This coffee has a creamy body, and finishes with a particularly brief aftertaste.
  3. Victoria - Just as wine and beer are rated, so is coffee, however, coffee presents a unique challenge as much more is required than just opening a bottle - and is subject to a globe-spanning sequence of operations by a succession of hands (farmers, processors, graders, exporters, importers, warehousers, roasters, brewers). Both farms we partner with, Finca Palmerita and Finca Miraflore, enjoy rating scores of 84 and 86 points, respectively. In our Victoria coffee, venture to experience the delicate vanilla flavors alongside a fine floral fragrance. This coffee has low acidity and a particularly dry aftertaste.

#18 Third Day Coffee

#18 Third Day Coffee

Third Day Coffee is a Christian based Veteran Owned Company based in Seguin, Texas. We use a mix of industry standard methods and our own twist to roasting our coffee. We run native South Texas Mesquite smoke over our beans as we are roasting to give it a unique flavor that is ours alone. Don't be fooled by dark roast coffee that is "strong", a lot of coffee has the real flavor over roasted right out of it. We only use high quality beans from reputable sources and do not, will not over roast our coffee just because everyone else does. Jose Roberto Alaniz, Jr. has a threefold mission. First: share the Gospel of Christ Jesus. Second: support our Veteran community through local charities. Third: support the impoverished coffee farmers in Honduras where our coffee is grown.

 

  1. Isaiah 52:7 "God Reigns" - The Lempira variety of Arabica coffee beans thrives in the warm temperatures and acidic soil of Honduras and is showcased in our beloved blend. The thousands of different varieties in coffee play a significant role in successful farming. Think of wine varieties like Chardonnay, Pinot, Zinfandel, Merlot. These beans are grown at 1450 m.a.s.l. in Honduras. They are red-honey processed, which means half of the coffee cherry remains while the coffee dries, which results in significant notes of blueberry, strawberry, or a kind of tropical fruit. Medium-roasted over South Texas Mesquite hard wood.
  2. Finca Santos - This Lempira variety is grown at 500 meters lower in the mountains of Honduran than our Isaiah 52:7 "God Reigns". And instead of Red-Honey processing, the more popular washed method is used, which removes the entire cherry prior to drying the beans. Generally, Honduran coffee is aromatic and fragrant with notes of vanilla or hazelnut. Its body is often described as medium and round, and its acidity is generally well-balanced. Medium-roasted with South Texas Mesquite hard wood.

Though darker roasted beans have a more intense flavor, the amount of caffeine is less than beans roasted lightly, due to caffeine burning off during longer roast cycles.

Anserma, is located in Colombia’s famous “Eje Cafetero", an area renowned for coffee growing and famous for producing the majority of Colombia coffee.

  1. Chiapas - The Chiapas Highlands are rich in rainfall and nutritious soil, and the coffee farms at 1200-1750 m.a.s.l. are naturally shaded by a lush forest canopy that blankets the Sierra Madre de Chiapas mountains in Mexico. This area is famous for its complex characteristics that delicately balance chocolate tones with bright acidity. Everything that went into growing this Mexico Chiapas Organic is natural, with priority placed on conserving and revitalizing the land’s resources. Most of the farmers in Chiapas are smallholders, and their economy is driven by coffee as a cash crop. With a delightful flavor profile that includes marzipan, orange, red apple, and granola, this light coffee with satisfying acidity is a beautiful example of Chiapas’ agricultural excellence. Experience the distinctive notes of marzipan, orange, red apple, and granola. A light body with rich juicy flavors Pairs well with Breakfast tacos!

  3. Oaxaca México - Hailing from the state of Guerrero in Mexico, the coffee grown along these valley walls is kissed by the Pacific mists every morning, baked in hot sun during the day, and chilled at night – a perfect coffee climate. Clouds rise up the mountain in the morning, fed by the nearby ocean, falling away by midday, giving coffee farms in the area a short but strong stint of direct heat before fogging up again in the evening. In the mountain pueblo of Santa Cruz Tutiahua is the Vasquez family farm, members of a 130-farm cooperative who gather to trade tips, labor, and equipment, and are committed to organic practices composting. Taste the notes of candied lime, cherry vanilla, and raisin caramel. A very fruit forward coffee that is perfect if you want to try to expand your coffee palate. Pairs well with Pastries and shines on cold brew!
  4. Guerro Mexico - La Costa is where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sierra Madre de Sur Mountain Range. Hot days and cool nights leave a heavy layer of dew which, with the ocean mist, makes ideal what would otherwise be an arid region for growing coffee. Here coffee is grown within forests of pine, ash, Cuajinicuil, Ocotal and banana trees. The small family farms in this area prize organic methods, skillfully combining the old ways of doing things with new knowledge of best practices, including practices of fermenting for 1-2 days in wood or stone tanks, then setting out to dry for 15+ days often under shade on rooftops. Francisco Zorilla, of Finca La Hamaica, was our first supplier partner in the region. Savor the notes of honey-covered almonds, lemon nectarine, toasted coconut, and juicy peach. This coffee showcases the potential of what Mexican coffee can offer! Pairs well with Pan dulce and spicy breakfast

Both our Washed and Natural have been roasted to a medium/medium-dark profile, so you can appreciate the nuances of these two different coffee processing methods. When roasted, the sugars caramelize, creating a coffee that naturally tastes like sweet, candied berries.
