The Joes behind the Joe We are a dedicated band of coffee professionals in business since 1991 bringing you Smoked European style slow roasted coffees shipped fresh from the roaster to your door. We bring you 45 years' combined experience in coffee growing, importing, classifying and roasting to ensure you receive only the best quality beans roasted to perfection. Our retail locations in South West Colorado serve over a thousand people a day who swear we have the best coffee they've ever tasted!

Compare our quality/price combination, it's hard to beat. Here's some of the ways we do it differently.

This is the most important part of the job. We only buy large, uniform size fresh crop arabica beans. All coffees are cupped (tasted) prior to purchase.

Slow roasting, smoking and air cooling enable us to coax out the prized characteristics of these fine coffees. Our roastmaster's 25 years experience enables him to adjust his style for each roast, paying attention to all the following variables dependent on the type of coffee being roasted:

  • Barometric pressure
  • Temperature at which the coffee enters the chamber
  • Time for which the coffee is roasted at a low temperature
  • Use of smoke in the process
  • Changing temperature to "seal the roast"
  • Amount of air flow permitted into the chamber
  • Cooling time
All our coffee bags are equipped with one-way valves to ensure the coffee reaches you as fresh as when it left the roaster. The bags are airtight and resealable.

Strict attention to all of the above ensures you will receive only the best quality, freshest beans roasted to perfection.

We will gladly offer free consultation and advice on brewing and serving equipment to suit your needs.

Thanks for stopping by.
