We are excited to announce that starting this Friday we will be at BADSEED Farm & Market each Friday from 4-9 PM. We will be brewing coffee by the cup and will also have bags for sale. If you haven’t had a chance to try our freshly roasted coffee, we would love to meet you. The market is located in the crossroads district at 1909 McGee, Kansas City, MO.
You might have wondered what makes our coffee different than the coffee you might find at a grocery store or have experienced in the past. That is a good and fair question. I mean, why should you move that one item off your grocery list and purchase it from somewhere else? Growing up, I remember seeing my dad drink coffee from the old, red, metal Folgers coffee can. My brother and I would use a couple empty ones, along with some wire, to make an old school telephone. I followed in my dad’s footsteps and started drinking the same coffee when I was an adult. It wasn’t until many years later when I started scouring the internet to see if there were any other brands of coffee out there that might be a step above what I had experienced so far. Through this research, I ran across an article that made a startling statement. It said that coffee, if it is freshly roasted, can actually be a sweet beverage.
I didn’t know what to think of this. First of all, wasn’t the coffee I had been drinking fresh? Surely the reputable companies wouldn’t be selling me a product that wasn’t fresh, would they? So began my research of freshly roasted specialty coffee. I was suspicious of the term specialty coffee. What exactly did that phrase mean? I came to find out that it actually did mean something very important. 75% of the world’s coffee is from the Coffea Arabica L species, as opposed to the lower grade Coffea canephora (Robusta), which is high grown in ideal climates and soil. The top 5% of Arabica coffee has the quality necessary to be considered specialty coffee. Specialty coffee possesses unique flavors and has little to no defects. Furthermore, coffees from different countries or regions have their own unique flavor characteristics, so the excitement never ends.
I also found that coffee is a food item that stays fresh from 2-4 weeks after it is roasted. It made sense that if it was a food item it wouldn’t stay good forever. However, I wanted to verify this for myself and compared my grocery store coffee to some freshly roasted coffee from a local coffee shop. Drumroll…it was a night and day difference. The freshly roasted coffee was bursting full of unique and complex flavors. On the one hand I was excited to discover a whole new dimension of coffee and on the other hand knew I was forever ruined!
