What is Specialty Coffee?
Specialty coffee is a term used to describe high-quality coffee that is carefully grown, harvested, and roasted to highlight its unique flavour profile. These beans are grown in ideal conditions, at high altitudes, with the right amount of rainfall and sun exposure. Specialty coffee farmers are meticulous in their cultivation, only harvesting ripe coffee cherries by hand and using sustainable farming practices to maintain the quality of their coffee crops.
Once the beans are harvested, they are carefully processed to ensure that the flavours and aromas are preserved. Then they are roasted by skilled roasters, who understand the complexities of coffee roasting and can coax out the best flavours from each bean.
Why is Specialty Coffee Better?
There are several reasons why specialty coffee is a better choice than other types of coffee:
- Higher Quality: Specialty coffee is produced with a focus on quality, not quantity. This means that each bean is carefully selected for its flavour profile, and the beans are harvested and processed with care to maintain their unique characteristics.
- More Complex Flavours: Because specialty coffee is grown and processed with care, it has a more complex flavour profile than other types of coffee. You may taste notes of fruit, chocolate, or even floral flavours in your cup.
- Sustainable Farming Practices: Many specialty coffee farmers use sustainable farming practices to ensure that their coffee crops are healthy and the environment is protected. This means that specialty coffee is often a more environmentally friendly choice than other types of coffee.
- Supporting Small Farmers: Specialty coffee is often grown by small farmers who are passionate about their craft. By purchasing specialty coffee, you are supporting these small farmers and helping to ensure that they can continue to produce high-quality coffee.
