At Coyote Moon Coffee we take great pride in roasting and blending the highest quality of coffee beans. Our company was born out of a long journey in search of a truly fabulous cup of coffee. We are a small family owned business where we believe the integrity of our product is directly linked to our pride in ownership. We challenge you discover our uniquely fresh and clean taste of quality in each and every cup.
Our process begins by inspecting and selecting beans for superior quality from some of the best importers and coffee growing regions in the world. Upon delivery, our beans are immediately inspected and cupped and then stored in a climate controlled environment. This process is critical in delivering a coffee that maintains its flavorful characteristics. In fact, if this storage is not done correctly, you can never recover the natural flavors.
Next, our micro-roasting process is tedious and personally attended by one roaster to develop the full taste of the coffee and to produce a profile of continuity with each roast. This process of roasting in small batches creates a bean that has been personally handled and cared for from start to finish. The roasting is performed with a scientific understanding of the roasting machine and characteristics of the bean but with an artisan flare for flavor. At each step in the roasting process the beans are timed, visibly analyzed and smells are noted. At the end of their roasting they are cooled and immediately packaged. The packaging is the final step. We use the highest quality bags with a one-way valve to preserve the flavors and aromas of the bean. We heat seal the bag to obtain a completely air-tight environment. The gases are able to penetrate through the valve while the oxygen from outside the bag is not able to center. You might notice when you receive your coffee that the bag looks inflated. This is not air, it is a gas by-product produced from the beans.This is often very noticeable when you have very fresh beans that have not been exposed to the air. Once the gases have fully expanded in the bag, it will begin to excrete the gas out of the valve. I especially love to squeeze the bag and smell the coffee at this point. In addition to the valve, the bag also has a zip-lock component to help you, the consumer, to continue to preserve the flavors after you have opened your coffee at home. For best results, squeeze as much air out of the bag prior to zipping it shut after each usage.
We hope you enjoy our coffee and would love to hear any comments you have about it.
