Our Current Roasters
Based in Durham, North Carolina, Counter Culture Coffee has been at the forefront of quality coffee for the last several years. They have racked up more frequent flyer miles than most coffee roasters in their relentless pursuit of coffee perfection. Counter Culture has its own Direct Trade Certification and knows many of their farmer partners by first name. Just like their business model, the quality is transparent.
George Howell is a pioneer in single source roasting. He sources his beans from individual farms to get the unique flavor profile, also known as terrior, which is attributed to factors such as soil quality, latitude, and annual rainfall. They form direct relationships with their farmers to get the best quality. Howell strives to bring coffee back to the forefront by “making the drinking of your morning brew a ’30-minute pleasure trip”. Be sure to check out their instagram (@ghowellcoffee) to see them in action.
The Kalita 185-series glass brewer makes it easy to craft a high-quality, nuanced cup of coffee. In testing, brewers appreciated how easy it was to make an evenly-extracted cup, while tasters were impressed with how easy it was to distinguish the individual flavor notes in the final product. The Kalita’s combination of consistency and quality has made it a favorite of the high-end coffee world and the preferred brewing method for multiple competitive brewers, including the 2013 Brewer’s Cup world champion. Come taste for yourself and see why we have chosen to adopt Kalita as our main brewing method to highlight our delicious coffee collection.
