Specialty coffee refers to the whole process from farmer to cup using single origin coffee. It refers to the way the coffee is roasted and how it is extracted, the quality of the bean and the harvesting process and many other aspects of excellent coffee. Coffee which scores 80 points or above on a 100-point scale is graded “specialty”. Café Amar coffee is always a minimum of 85 points. Specialty coffees are grown in special and ideal climates and are distinctive because of their full cup taste and little to no defects. The unique flavours and tastes are a result of the special characteristics and composition of the soils in which they are produced.
We only buy green coffee that has been harvested within a year, so you always enjoy the most recent season’s flavour. Coffee can be like wine – there are good years and bad years, so we take great care to taste the coffee before we buy.
We are environmentally conscientious and we care about our world so we only buy coffee which is Fair Trade meaning that no slave labour has been used collecting our coffee.
Rain Forest Alliance
This is another important criteria for us and means that no forests has been destroyed in the farming or harvesting of our coffee.
Cafe Amar is Single Origin, so no blends, no secret hidden mixes – just quality coffee, our unique coffee flavour and our unique roasting profile. We roast our green coffee beans on site, here at Son Amar.
More good news. You can buy Café Amar fresh-roasted beans to take home and grind fresh yourself. All our packaging is biodegradable.
