Welcome to the world of third-wave coffee - a movement that's not just about sipping on your daily caffeine fix, but about experiencing coffee in its most exquisite form. At Sumato Coffee, we're proud to be a part of this revolution, and today, we're diving into what makes third-wave coffee truly special.
A Focus on Quality and Craftsmanship
Third-wave coffee is a term coined to describe a current movement within the coffee industry that emphasizes high-quality beans, skillful roasting, and artisanal brewing techniques. Unlike the first wave, which brought coffee into households, and the second wave, which popularized espresso-based drinks and café culture, the third wave treats coffee not as a commodity but as an artisanal product, much like fine wine.
One of the hallmarks of third-wave coffee is its focus on the origin of the beans. At Sumato Coffee, we source our beans from small lot farms in countries like Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Ethiopia. Each location imparts its unique set of flavors and characteristics to the beans, influenced by factors such as soil, climate, and altitude.
Roasting: An Art and a Science
Roasting is where the magic happens, transforming green coffee beans into the aromatic beans we love. We roast our beans only after receiving an order, ensuring maximum freshness. Our roasting process is carefully calibrated to bring out the distinct flavors and aromas inherent in each batch of beans.
The third wave also revolutionizes the brewing process. Whether it's a French Press, AeroPress, or a Pour Over, each method is respected as a unique art form. Our brewing guides help coffee enthusiasts get the most out of their Sumato beans, ensuring every cup is a journey through rich, complex flavors.
Join the Revolution
The third-wave coffee movement is more than a trend; it's a celebration of coffee's rich diversity and a commitment to quality at every step. As you enjoy a cup of Sumato Coffee, you're not just drinking coffee; you're part of a global community that cherishes every bean, every roast, and every brew.
Embrace the third wave with us, and let's savor the journey, one cup at a time.
