Every coffee is unique, as noticed from the varietal to the elevation at which the coffee is grown, cultivation techniques, processing methods, bean size and density as well as moisture content. Every coffee has its own distinctive characteristics. In recent years, both growers and mills alike have been experimenting with innovative new processes which are changing the world of coffee. The greater selection of estate coffees, micro lot and Cup of Excellence coffees are the results of these efforts. With hands-on roasting you will learn the fundamentals of roasting and the fine points of developing roast profiles. A refined roast profile brings out a coffees true expression, which the producers so diligently work to achieve.
Each day, morning coffee, fruit and baked goods are provided. Lunch and snacks are also provided each day.
