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
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:
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
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
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.
