We select only 100% Specialty Grade Arabicas from single farms, estates & cooperatives, ethically sourced from growers around the globe. With each country’s season in mind we test roast and evaluate small batch samples, sniffing and slurping until we taste coffee we like. Building sustainable relationships enable us to get our hands on the very best coffees while ensuring that the quality-focused producers are rewarded for their hard work.
As with everything we do at Extract, sourcing the highest quality green coffee requires a relationship built on mutual respect and a passion for quality. By buying from the same groups of growers year after year we help build an equitable and sustainable trading relationships where we always pay well above the fair trade minimum price for coffee.
picking the best
We roast specialty coffee, where coffee hunters seek the best of crop beans with distinctive flavour, properly prepared and shipped, from a producing country with the appropriate geographic and climatic conditions. This is usually only the top 2 to 3 per cent of coffee production with specialty grades found in Central and South America, the Caribbean, East Africa, India and Sumatra.
