A question that we get asked often is, “What is specialty coffee?” Believe it or not, there is an actual formula for figuring out whether a coffee has received the “specialty” tag.
Standards for specialty coffee are considered based on the green coffee, cupping, roasting, water, and even brewing. Specialty coffee should not be confused with “gourmet” or “premium” coffee. The latter are marketing terms with no defined standards. However, coffee that scores 80 points or above on a 100-point scale by meeting various specific standards is graded “specialty.”
Therefore, if a coffee has received “specialty” status, then it has undergone various tests and evaluations to receive esteemed credentials. All of our coffees are specialty grade & roasted to perfection, so you can be sure that each time you order from Well-Bean Coffee, every cup that you brew with our specialty beans will make a perfect cup of coffee.
