We roast in our premises

to guarantee the best taste.

Our coffee beans ships within 24 hours of roasting.

Nobody knows exactly who the first person to roast coffee was but we thank them every day. Unroasted coffee is inedible and undrinkable. But someone, a long time ago, figured out that you can brew roasted coffee into a delicious beverage and the rest is history.

How we roast

Dark Roast

Strong and full body

Dark roasted coffees are roasted for a slightly longer period of time. The additional development of the bean produces the smooth, rich aromas and flavors we associate most with coffee: chocolate, almond, peanut, and caramel. Our Sumatra and Fairtrade Organic Colombia Sierra Nevada coffees are our darker roasts. Traditionally, dark roasts are perfect to pair with milk (or a plant-based alternative!) and sugar and also to prepare as espresso. More oils are extracted in a darker roast, and these create the delicious crema that tops a perfectly pulled shot.

Medium Roast

Pronounce acidity

Medium roasted coffees preserve more of the beans’ inherent flavor characteristics. Medium and light roasted coffees often taste a bit fruity, spicy, and even floral, with a more pronounced acidity. Coffee can be roasted to any level; it all depends on personal preference. At COFFEED, we roast our Eat Roast Share blend and our Burundi single origin to medium levels to showcase their complexity.

Decaf Roast

Same taste zero caffeine

Coffee beans naturally contain caffeine; the stimulant functions as the coffee trees’ natural defense against pests in the tropical climates where it grows. (One bite of a caffeinated coffee cherry will shock the systems of most insects to a full stop.) Removing this caffeine to create decaf coffee is a labor intensive process, meaning decaffeinated coffee needs to be roasted with some TLC. We roast our Decaf Colombia to a medium level, but the beans look a bit different because they have also undergone decaffeination.

French Press (Bodum)

Using a medium grind and a ratio of one or two tablespoons per 6 ounces of not-quite-boiling water, a French Press allows certain oils in the coffee to pass through the filter that would normally be removed by a paper filter. With some beans, this can result in the perfectly balanced bold cup.

Chemex

Pour some not-quite-boiling water through the filter before adding coffee. This will heat the Chemex and rinse the filter. We always recommend doing your own experimenting but we love a ratio of about 3 tablespoons for every cup of water.

Clever Dripper

• Place filter in the brewer and rinse with hot water.

• Drain rinse water by placing the brewer on top of the decanter. Be sure to dump your rinse water from the decanter as well.

• Weigh out 25g of whole bean coffee. Grind medium-coarse and pour into filter.

• Place everything on your scale and tare it to zero.

• Start timer and pour 50g of water over the coffee, making sure to saturate all the grounds thoroughly. Allow the coffee to bloom for 30 seconds.

• Begin pouring water and stop when you’ve reached 450g of water. Technique is not as important here as it would be with a pour over, just be sure to fully saturate the grounds.

• Let sit until the timer has reached 2 minutes.

• Gently lift the brewer and place it on top of the decanter. This will allow the coffee to begin draining. It should be done draining around 3.5 - 4 minutes.

• Give the decanter a swirl to aerate the coffee, pour yourself a cup, and enjoy!
