At Buon Giorno Coffee, we have been inspired by the rich tradition of careful drum roasted coffee. We do not subscribe to the over-roasted North American tradition, nor many of the latest trends in brewing coffee, but to the age old enhancement of the raw green bean by carefully profiled roasting.
We are not afraid to utilize technology in our quest to replicate profiles that work, or to make adjustments even when a new crop seems to demand a slightly different roast profile. Our blends are nurtured from repeated cupping (tasting) of different combinations of beans and are developed to enhance an already broad selection of single origins from every major coffee growing region.
We source our beans from South and Central America, Africa and Asia including some specialty crops from Hawaii and Jamaica when available. Due to our limited storage capabilities we order approximately twice a month and introduce new single origins as available. We feel that the limitations and even disadvantages of Fair Trade coffee (See my article) do not warrant this route, but our preferred choice is to support direct trade through preferring those coffee farms that have direct relationships with our bulk suppliers. This provides a much more effective method of supporting farmers who often receive much less than they deserve for their fine products.
Because our culture and ethos have been so influenced by the historic European coffee houses, we specialize in offering two traditional forms of coffee at our coffeehouses: espresso and the cafetière (or French Press).
We hope you enjoy the simple pleasure of freshly roasted coffee.
