Tasting Notes: This coffee is our headliner. Grown between 4,000 and 6,000 feet above sea level, on a plantation with a unique micro-climate, whose production has been prized in Europe for more than half a century.
There is simply no other coffee prepared so carefully. We begin with about 1,000,000 pounds of green coffee from the heart of the crop. Of this amount, only 289,000 pounds give or take will survive mill classifications to be bagged for shipment. This represents a selective process that reduces our finest raw material by more than 70%.
This is an amazing statistic, especially considering the more than 30,000 man-hours of improvement by hand selection during final preparation.
We have attempted to produce the perfectly balanced coffee. One that combines all of the ingredients that a classic cup should contain: sweet aroma, full body, brilliant acidity, and delicately clean aftertaste. All in balance and with no impurities to detract from its enjoyment. In a word: elegant.
THE RIGHT ROAST®
Still want the regular Beanery Blend® taste without the effects of caffeine? Our best selling coffee also comes in a carefully prepared decaffeinated version.
This delicate blend is roasted to just a click below a Full Roast or, in roaster's jargon "to the brink of the second crack", to develop the coffee's sweet and nutty taste.
The Coffee Beanery has the highest standards in the industry when it comes to providing the finest specialty coffees in the world. We believe the real artistry in producing the perfect bean is in the right roast for each variety. Our master roaster roasts each of our specialty coffees to the peak of its taste potential — choosing from a wide range of roasts. The result? Some of our specialty arabica coffees are slightly sweet. Others have a bit of snap. Still others display a complex, earthy flavor. But each one of our fine specialty coffees has its own distinctive flavor components that are enhanced by our roasting expertise. You can see, smell and taste the difference The Right Roast® makes.
All of our coffee is certified Kosher Pareve, which means that none of the ingredients come from meat or dairy, except for Crème Brulee and Sinful Sundae, which are certified Kosher Dairy.
