What is an Artisan Roaster?
Think freshly baked artisan bread from your local bakery vs. the processed junk at a megastore.
Artisan roasters work with smaller batches of coffee beans, allowing them to be more selective about where their beans come from. They can also roast each batch to a level that perfectly brings out the flavors unique to each coffee variety, and even each farm.
Whether large or small, local or national, the roasters we use share a few key characteristics. They:
Have a national reputation for attention to detail in each cup they produce
Educate consumers (including our team at Workplace Hardware) on coffee growing, roasting and taste
Have years of expertise and history
Were first to build relationships with farmers and work with them on growing practices to produce better coffee
Lead the pack with new coffee trends & products (like small-batch cold brew)
