We have a Passion of Forging Specialty Coffee Knowledge and Fitness to Fuel Your Journey in Life.
At Rx Coffee we believe in providing the highest quality specialty coffee that is limited edition small batch roasted by our master roasters who have fine-tuned their craft down to an exact science.
All of our coffee is single origin specialty coffee, carefully selected from top lots, and sustainably sourced. Each roast has been perfected by a master roaster and roasted to bring out the most flavors in the beans. We ensure our customers know they are getting fresh roasted coffee by placing a roasted on date on every single bag. This is truly one of a kind small batch roasted limited edition coffee.
At Rx Coffee, we won't tell you what you're supposed to taste because everyone has different tastes. We will provide the "notes" on the coffee to let you know what our Master Roasters tasted.
So what is specialty coffee?
Simply put...specialty coffee is the best of the best when it comes to coffee.
The term "Specialty Coffee" was first coined by Erna Knutsen in a 1974 issue of Tea & Coffee Trade Journal.
Specialty coffee undergoes a stringent screening process when the beans are still green (unroasted) and then evaluated during a tasting process after they are roasted called "cupping". Cupping is the tasting process by which a highly skilled taster (much like a sommelier) evaluates and assigns scores to each of the coffee’s attributes, such as acidity, body, flavor and aroma. Specialty coffee must possess at least one distinctive attribute in the body, flavor, aroma, or acidity; and must be free of faults and taints.
Don't confuse "specialty coffee" with "gourmet" or "premium" coffee.
According to the SCAA-Specialty Coffee Association of America, specialty coffee is used to refer to coffee that is graded 80 points or above on a 100 point scale by a certified coffee taster (SCAA) or by a licensed Q Grader (CQI).
Specialty Coffee undergoes a rigorous visual inspection of a 350 gram sample searching for primary and secondary defects. Specialty grade coffee must have zero primary defects. Premium or Gourmet coffee allows primary and secondary defects.
