Sweet Maria's Roasted Coffee Pairings

Sweet Maria's Small Batch, Craft-Roasted Coffee Selections

Sweet Maria's Coffee offers "coffee pairings": one pound each of two coffees chosen to highlight differences in origin, processing, or roast; to provide our customers the ability to study the flavor profiles of two coffees. This sort of comparison is what we do all the time. Tom does this formally when he cups a number of different coffee lots at the cupping table. In the warehouse we make a different coffee each time we brew a pot. Such a practice helps us focus on the flavor of the cup, to appreciate each coffee's uniqueness.

As of October 5 2011, we are carrying the roasted coffee as an in stock item - so we roast some coffee, sell it and ship it immediately. If we have roasted coffee, it will be in stock. When we run out - we run out. Shipping is no longer included in the cost and you can combine a roasted coffee order with other items. Just be aware that you want to pick a shipping method that will get the coffee there quickly.

(If you're interested specifically in roasted coffee for espresso, see our Roasted Espresso Page.)

If you roast your own, you might want to cup your roasts versus those done on the gas-fired German Probat roaster, and compare the "degree of roast" we have chosen for the specific coffees to your own. If you don't roast at home, well ... here's the next best thing! We post comments on the why and how of each week's selection on our Sweet Maria's Weblog ... and you can make comments too.
