Our very first artisan roast! After a detailed consultation with our artisan about what “notes” we are looking to bring out from our beans, we created our own unique roast! The whole process is just amazing! The result today is a unique medium roast that we will call “medio” which is Portuguese for medium. This picture is of the beans just as they dropped out of the roaster into the cooling tray.
Next we developed our “Ponto” roast. This is a profile inspired by Higino. When roasting his beans, with his village roaster, he always asks them to be roasted “to the point”. He describes this as the perfect point between a medium and dark roast. We have been drinking his perfect “to the point” roast for years and it is the inspiration behind the formation of our company.
