Everything begins with a coffee seed or bean, the same bean the cup of coffee is made from.
In order to produce quality coffee, the seed has to be of top quality and sown in the right place at the right time.
There are two different breeds of coffee: soft Arabica and robusta, which contains the higher level of bitterness, but is easier to grow. All sorts of specialty coffee come from 10% Arabica beans at the most.
After 3 to 4 years, the planted coffee tree will bring its first red fruit and this is the sign that the beans are ready to harvest. From plantations, coffee goes to traders or directly to roasteries.
Roasteries create special profiles for each coffee variety, increasing or highlighting their natural aromas.
Working with special equipment, baristas use roasted coffee with great precision to produce quality and delicious drinks.
Specialty coffee beans are always well processed, freshly roasted and properly prepared.
