Coffee beans are collected, taken to our state of the art processing mill, and then sorted by grade, size, weight and form.
Processing transforms the raw berry into a dry bean. Almost ready for your home.
The beans are then dried by the sun or, a little more quickly, by our machines. Beans are sorted by hand to be dried in the sun or through a machine.
This step will either happen at a coffee house or at a processing company. Coffees of different origin and type are blended together. The beans are heated at temperatures ranging from 370 to 540 degrees for eight to 15 minutes, depending on the roast. A longer roast will mean a darker coffee. Moisture is lost and there is a chemical reaction that results in delicious coffee.
Grinding is one of the most important steps. This step will transform the way the coffee tastes. Companies should always seek to understand what degree of fineness customers want so that the grinding can be adjusted.
Packaging is the last step before it reaches your home. The beans or the grinded coffee are packaged in an enclosed container to protect it from the elements. Packaging properly preserves the taste and quality of the coffee.
- We use vacuum and valve-sealed bags
- Both whole bean and grinded coffee are always stored in one or the other
