Do you like your coffee with a fruity or caramel note? What’s your preferred roast?
Does this sound a little complicated for just a cup of coffee? You’re not alone, a lot of people don’t really understand all the jargon that goes into Specialty Coffee, Third Wave, or Direct Trade. Honestly, it’s confusing to keep up with.
So, what does Specialty Coffee even mean?
Specialty Coffee describes the process of how it gets from the grower to your coffee cup. With Specialty Coffee, it all comes from one grower and isn’t mixed with other types of coffee, this ensures the quality in taste and unique flavor. Specialty coffee is also more beneficial to the environment than the coffee you get at the grocery store or Starbucks. Most specialty coffee is produced organically, meaning that it’s not covered in pesticides or anything else that could possibly be harmful to you or the environment.
Additionally, since it’s organically grown, they don’t have to do a lot to the environment to produce it. Coffee plants naturally thrive in shaded areas and specialty coffee is grown in just that! Conventional coffee that you pick up at the grocery is genetically engineered to be able to grow in sunlight to be able to mass produce it. This sacrifices quality for quantity, and that’s something specialty coffee conform to. All of the coffee that Young Hustler Coffee carries is Specialty Coffee. Grown organically at small farms, and even award-winning farms that ensure only the best coffee will be freshly-roasted and served to you!
Another really cool thing is that Specialty Coffee ensures is fair pay. The spike in quality assurance from a lot of coffee providers has cut out the middle man in a lot of transactions, this creates a fairer market that makes sure that the growers are not being exploited for their work. They receive appropriate payment for their services that we buy, creating a better market for the growers and the companies purchasing the coffee.
