Excellent roasted coffee can only come from excellent green coffee.
Beansmith samples new crops of "green" or "raw" coffee each harvest to pick the cream of the crop to present as our seasonal offerings. We carefully roast each sample and let the coffees rest for a measured period of time, after which we prepare the samples to be cupped.
Beansmith's team of roasters practice the art of cupping to evaluate the attributes of these coffees based on standards set by the Specialty Coffee Association of America. We use this tool to determine which coffees we will offer each season, though it is ultimately the matter of taste that holds the final decision.
With the bar set high for scoring it is true that we narrow our choices down to the best of the best. However, rather than splitting hairs over cupping scores between these top shelf beans, we choose the ones that we are passionate about - coffees both delicious and unique. We strive to find coffees of true excellence that range from wild and exotic, to classically rich and clean.
Once we have determined which beans will become Beansmith coffee, our Roasting Team works with the coffee to find just the right roast for each origin. Beansmith takes a light-handed approach to roasting, allowing each origin to display the traits that make it unique. Our coffees are presented as single origins, with a few finding their way into our signature blends as well.
Whether you are a retail customer, or a larger, wholesale coffee shop account, all Beansmith coffee is roasted to order! Beansmith roasts, packages, and ships your coffee on the day it was born - in most cases within 24 hours of receiving your order! We even hand stamp the roast date on every bag for true accountability where freshness is concerned.
We believe you should know as much as you can about the coffee you drink. There is a story in every cup; a story worth exploring. Beansmith has painstakingly researched each of our coffees, and have designed our website to provide you with all the information we can gather on each and every bean. We invite you to join us in the exploration of the exciting world of specialty coffee.
