Coffee Story

Working at a coffee company has its perks, and one of the best aspects is undoubtedly the opportunity to taste a variety of coffees. At Bean Brothers Roastery, the proportion of coffees that we actually release as products after evaluation is around 5%. While we have stringent criteria, it also means that there are many coffees of a level that is challenging to bring to the market. After experiencing a range of coffee qualities, a certain "perspective" emerges, and there is a sense of enjoyment that comes only after developing this perspective.

However, there is one side effect that has occurred for me from tasting many coffees in a short period. I find it challenging to appreciate relatively common flavor profiles in coffee. Even if it is of good quality, I tend to evaluate it more with my "head" rather than feeling it from the heart, and the instances where I genuinely believe a coffee is good have decreased. While it concerns me that someone discussing coffee can become indifferent in this way, it is not easy to rediscover the enthusiasm I had when cheering for each cup of coffee.

Occasionally, when encountering a coffee with a distinctive character, like a herbal and citrusy Ethiopian coffee, it brings a breath of fresh air to my once bored palate.

Thinking that all Ethiopian coffees might be similar, the unexpected flavors during the tasting process ignite my interest. It's a sensation where flowers and fruit form the base, complemented by intriguing herbal and spice notes. It reminds me of the enjoyment I once found in quality Yemeni coffee. For those who have been enjoying Ethiopian coffee for a long time, I hope this coffee brings a new sense of delight.

What is the best consumed date for coffee beans? Are your coffee beans freshly-roasted?

We recommend 7-21 days after the initial roasting date to allow for degassing to take place, allowing the flavour of the coffee compounds to be properly extracted. Within the first seven days, roasted coffee beans are still releasing carbon dioxide and degassing. If not degassed properly, it will hinder the extraction of ground coffee particles during the brewing process.

What are the differences between Single Origins and Blends?

Single origin beans are harvested from a single producer, crop, or region, usually delivering a taste profile that is unique to its origins. Blends are a mixture of a few single origin beans, producing a rich and expressive flavor profile.

How do I choose coffee that is suitable for me?

Find the right tasting notes. These are often identified by our barista during cupping sessions. Some coffee are more floral and fruity while some are more chocolaty and nutty. As you drink more coffee, you will figure out which notes you would like the most.
