From the Founder
“I found that a truly good cup of coffee was somewhat of a rare bird. My primary objective is to be able to provide the more discerning coffee drinker an extraordinary tasting cup of coffee to start their day. If one is going to take time to prepare coffee using correct ratios and brew methods, quality ingredients (green coffee beans) roasted with experience are a must. When I started roasting single origin coffee beans on a very small scale, I would give the coffee to friends and family. Everyone was amazed of the difference in flavor of the specialty grade coffee, freshly roasted in small batches versus their traditional source(s). After researching numerous coffee roasters, we settled on a Turkish made roaster that showed excellent roast quality and consistency. We then began our journey as a small batch specialty coffee roaster in West Michigan to create great relationships with coffee lovers.”
Roast Profile Development
Before our single origin and microlot coffees are brought to market, the beans are pulled at a number of temperature intervals throughout the test roast. Each temperature variation is “cupped” (taste tested) to determine the light, medium and dark roast profiles for each origin coffee. The selections are tested again via Pour-Over, Drip and French Press brewing methods. This will always ensure each single origin and microlot coffee is roasted to perfection for ultimate flavor.
What is Celery City?
Portage, Michigan earned the nickname "Celery City" in the late 1800's due to the early settlers discovery that the rich dark soil was prime for celery farming. You can learn more about Portage, Michigan's Celery City here.
