What Makes Coffee “Specialty”?



Let’s start by demystifying the term “specialty coffee.” It’s not just your average cup of joe—it’s the crème de la crème of coffee. Here’s what sets it apart:

  1. Quality Beans: Specialty coffee begins with high-quality beans. These beans are meticulously grown, harvested, and processed to perfection. We’re talking about single-origin beans from specific regions, where factors like altitude, soil, and climate contribute to their unique flavors.



  1. Flavor Complexity: Specialty coffee is a symphony of flavors. From fruity and floral notes to chocolatey undertones and vibrant acidity, each sip reveals a new layer of complexity. It’s like a flavor adventure in your cup.

  2. Ethical Sourcing: Specialty coffee is rooted in sustainability. Farmers are fairly compensated, and environmentally friendly practices are prioritized. When you sip that specialty latte, you’re supporting a global community of passionate coffee growers.



Exploring Coffee Origins

Let’s travel the globe through our coffee cups:


  1. Ethiopia: The birthplace of coffee, Ethiopia offers a diverse range of flavors. From the bright and citrusy Yirgacheffe to the bold and spicy Sidamo, Ethiopian coffees are a sensory delight.

  2. Colombia: Known for its balanced profiles, Colombian coffees boast caramel sweetness, medium body, and a hint of nuttiness. Perfect for your morning brew.

  3. El Salvador: Expect clean, bright flavors from El Salvador beans. They often feature fruity notes like apple or peach, making them ideal for pour-over methods.


Brewing Magic: Specialty Coffee Techniques


  1. Pour-Over: Grab your Hario V60 or Kalita Wave, bloom those grounds, and let gravity work its magic. Pour-over brewing allows you to fine-tune your extraction.

  2. AeroPress: The AeroPress is like a coffee syringe. Inverted or classic method, it’s a versatile tool for crafting your perfect cup.

  3. Cold Brew: For hot summer days, cold brew is your best friend. Steep coarsely ground coffee in cold water overnight, strain, and enjoy the smooth, low-acid result.
