What's is your lightest roast?
Longs Peak Blend. A well-balanced blend of coffees from the Americas, this coffee brags low acidity, smooth taste and pleasant aroma.
What is your darkest roast?
Why are my beans sometimes shiny (oily) and sometimes dry-looking?
This is a result of the roast of the coffee. The darker the roast, the oilier the bean.
How does Kind roast its coffee?
We use a Sivetz gas-fired roaster. The Sivetz air roaster allows a constant flow of clean air through the beans as they roast, leaving a much "cleaner," coffee flavor. Drum roasters, more commonly used, build up more smoke inside the roasting chamber, and give you a different profile altogether.
What is the best way to store coffee?
Keep your coffee in a cool dry place, avoiding temperature variation, direct light and moisture.
Why Swiss Water Processed for your decaf coffee?
Swiss Water is the only decaffeination process achieved without the use of chemicals. In fact, the only substance to touch our beloved beans is pure water. Beans are soaked in it, allowing their caffeine to be pulled out and filtered away, leaving tasty beans ready to roast. Sipping a cup of our Swiss Water decaf is the perfect way to invigorate your senses without jumpstarting your heart!
What does 'Fair Trade' mean?
Fair trade for Coffee means that everyone involved in the process of growing and harvesting the beans is treated fairly, and the farmers are guaranteed a minimum price for their coffee.
