Our Featured Coffee & Tea Products

We consider in-house roasting and brewing to be a form of art.  Each brew is carefully crafted and carries artisanal notes throughout. We are passionate about the brews and roasts we create, as each one is unique.  In addition to providing a diverse array of coffee beans from around the world, we take a unique approach in our roasting technique. We roast our coffee beans a bit deeper than most, with personal attention to each batch.  Each type of coffee is roasted by hand to exacting standards, guaranteeing the following:

* A very smooth roast; in other words, the coffee is roasted with a nice even heat or temperature, creating consistent color and overall quality.

* Each batch gets personal attention, bringing out the very best of the unique characteristics that each coffee has to offer.

* Small batches guarantee freshness.

* Is cooled by air. Many coffee roasters use a water quenching method to cool the coffee and stop the roasting process, damaging the quality of the coffee.
