From Seed to Cup: Our coffees are sourced ethically & responsibly
At Black Sheep we hand select our coffees via a rigorous cupping process. It involves a combination of cupping for flavor and taking into account the practices of each farm where the coffee is grown. Once a coffee is selected to be part of our roast program, we design a roast profile to accentuate the characteristics of the coffee that are most desirable.
The end result of this selection process is to provide our customers with coffees that highlight each origins finest qualities and support human and environmentally sensitive practices.
