Coffee is like wine. Everybody likes something different than the other person. Our coffee friends in Seattle trend toward a dark, robust coffee, the Midwest favors a medium smooth roast, and our New Orleans friends like for the spoon to stand up in the coffee.
At Granny Shaffer’s Restaurant, our “Micro-Roasting” process combines art with science to allow is to roast coffee to match your favorite flavor. The coffee flavor depends on the variety and the roast. The longer the coffee is roasted, the darker it becomes and less acidic it becomes. Our patented scientific “Mirco-Roasting” process takes the guesswork out of coffee roasting and ensures that we reproduce the same flavor profile every time. Once you pick your favorite roast, we can match it every time. Below is a brief guide to help you select a roast that best matches your taste profile.
