What’s the deal with Terroir?

What’s the deal with Terroir?

Often when speaking with coffee roasters, terroir is brought up as one of the qualities that makes a specific coffee special. With the 3 coffees featured this month, their uniqueness is absolutely related to their unique terroir. So, what does terroir really mean?

What’s the deal with taste notes?

This article is from our February 2017 issue where we included this amazing answer from Lee Knuttila, the lead roaster and green buyer at Cut Coffee (along with a fantastic El Sal that he roasted). We loved this answer so much we had to post it online for all to see.

Canada Post Lockout - Great coffee is on the way!

Canada Post Lockout - Great coffee is on the way!

You've probably heard all about it. Canada Post is going to have a lockout or strike soon. How long will it last? We aren’t sure yet.

One thing we do know is that we’re going to do our best to get The Roasters Pack into your hands! We can't take the chance that your freshly roasted coffee could be stuck in a warehouse and we've found alternate plans.

How to Brew the Abid Clever (Brew Guide/Recipe with Video!)

We're huge fans of the Abid Clever. Munenori Kawasaki of the Toronto Blue Jays won't stop mentioning bush parties, we're a bit like that: we can't stop talking about the Abid Clever.

This brewing device is the best of both words with the immersion that makes it a bit like a french press but with the cleanliness of the filtered brew that makes it a bit like a V60. There are some coffees that really do benefit from this duality and we really recommend testing out your coffees from each pack to see which ones works best.

"A Film About Coffee" Documentary

A Film About Coffee Logo

We have moments – where we’re having a conversation with someone within the coffee industry and something they tell us blows us away. Whether it’s to do with their roasting strategy or maybe something we would never think about, like, what baskets are they putting the coffee cherry in after it is picked and how that impacts quality?

Start a Holiday Mug Swap at Your Office

Start a Holiday Mug Swap at Your Office

The holidays are just around the corner and just like every year, your office organizes a gift exchange. That annual anxiety-inducing gift exchange that forces you to buy a somewhat meaningful present for that guy down in payroll or your boss whose partiality towards your gift will determine the likelihood of your promotion. There's no greater holiday stress than this "fun" event with your co-workers. Obviously we think a gift subscription to The Roasters Pack is the #1 gift option, but perhaps your office is trendy enough to have a subscription as their office coffee. So then what?
