Coffee Verbology

Some descriptions of the verbage we use when talking coffee and what they mean

Single Origin: A coffee from a single country typically a mix of coffees from different areas within that country.

Blend: A mix of different origin coffee's to achieve a consistent flavor profile. 

Micro-Lot: A small lot of coffee from an individual finca/farm. 

Natural Dry Process: Coffee is allowed to dry in the sun rather than being washed. Typically results in more fruit forward flavors.

Washed Process: Coffee that has had the cherry removed and cleaned and washed then dried. Usually resulting in more snap. 

Fermentation Process:  A key part of the wet process of coffee fruit is overnight fermentation, to break down the fruit (mucilage) layer that tenaciously clings to the coffee seed, so it can be washed off. Fermentation must be done soon after picking the cherry from the tree, and lasts 12 - 24 hours depending on temperatures and other factors. When you feel the slimy coffee and the parchment layer feels rough like sandpaper, the coffee is ready to wash. Good fermentation and subsequent drying can lead to the cleanest coffee flavors in wet-process lots. Note that when I talk about fermentation, I don't mean to imply that the coffee seed is subject to fermentation. That would create defective coffee. The fruit coating the outer parchment skin is broken down with the action of peptic enzymes in the coffee. Cacao is fermented, coffee is not.

Honey Process: Honey (or its Spanish translation "Miel") can also refer to a pulp natural coffee.

About

Mission

My belief and commitment to you...

I believe coffee is more than a drink, its an adventure. Coffee is a way to travel the world in a cup, to enjoy a delicious treat, that in turn, supports farmers in their efforts to produce better coffee through fair trade, fair value, and good sustainable growing practices all the while enjoying a better life for themselves, their families and communities.

Special Reserve Coffee Roasters being a woman owned enterprise, has a heart for supporting women owned coffee producers, whether it be growing, harvesting or distributing the coffee. A portion of your purchase goes to support them, with that support comes better coffee and a better environment.

Coffee is my passion and I am thankful for the opportunity to share that passion with you by roasting only the best possible beans from around the world to create the best possible coffee drinking experience each time you enjoy a cup. Thank you for your purchase! My coffee is ALWAYS 100% guaranteed to be fresh and delicious!
