The Roastery – Extracting the Full Spectrum of Complex Flavors
By the time green coffee beans reach the roastery they have endured quite a journey. Coffee growing is a magical process that must be carefully managed in order for the beans produced to reach their packed full potential by the time it reaches the roastery.
We continuously aquire the highest quality beans possible from carefully selected global growing regions through strong relationships with the growers and distributers. We at Leap have a passion for fine grade coffee, both in the form of single origin coffees with all of the flavor notes present in the given region as well as hand crafted blends produced to an intended balance of high, middle and low notes.
Roasting coffee is much like the crafting of a fine wine. Our high grade beans come to us pact full of potential from our distributors. It is then up to our roasting team to extract the full spectrum of complex flavors and subtle notes indicative of the coffees region of origin. We are also very sensitive to the growing seasons of each of the coffees we roast. Coffee beans are after all a fruit and like a grape grown to perfection, coffee must be harvested and then roasted at the peak of ripeness to insure the optimum flavor expression.
