Here in the Yakima Valley we know a lot about apples and grapes, but you - like us - may still be learning about coffee, something many of us drink every day. For instance, did you know that saying a coffee is 100% Arabica beans would be like saying an applesauce is 100% Apples, or a wine is 100% Grapes. It’s nice to know there aren’t any additives, but it doesn’t tell us whether they’re Red Delicious or Granny Smith, Merlot or Chardonnay. Every variety of apple and grape has a different size, shape, color, texture and flavor. The same is true of the countless heirloom varieties of coffee in Ethiopia as well as the dozens of varieties that have found their way outside of the birthplace of coffee.
Single Origin Coffee refers to coffee from a single source, such as a specific farm, estate, cooperative or mill. Focus on the source of the coffee and working to understand coffee's full journey from farm to cup leads to better prices for producers, a higher quality bean, and a delicious cup of coffee.
As coffee roaster and educator Joe Morrocco said, "Roasting is an aesthetic endeavor." We started Basalt Roasters because we love exploring the full range of flavors that coffee has to offer. We wanted to share a specific style of specialty coffee roasting with Yakima.
Once the coffee's long journey to us is complete, we roast each lot to bring out the intricate flavors inherent to it's growing region, varietal, and processing method. It is our honor to showcase the hard work of everyone before us and offer it to you freshly roasted.
