Our coffee roaster is committed to crafting the freshest, most-flavorful coffee bean so your coffee is rich with greater complexity and a fuller range of flavors.
Superior care for superior coffee.
We take pride in paying close attention to the details necessary to produce a quality cup of coffee: selecting quality beans, knowing our importers and farmers, understanding processing methods, roasting with precision, assessing water quality, calibrating equipment, properly training staff and consistently monitoring quality.
That’s why we work closely with our importers to select quality coffee. Each coffee crop is tasted in our cupping lab where we carefully assess its aroma, acidity, flavor, body and balance. After purchase, we create a coffee’s roast profile by determining which of the bean’s inherent characteristics we wish to highlight. Enhancing a coffee’s aroma, intensifying a desirable acidity, or accentuating a nuanced flavor can occur with subtle manipulation throughout the roasting process of temperature, time and air flow. With Water Street, coffee is always roasted to order because freshness is key.
