The city roastery opened its doors at Van Gogh Coffees in Pietermaai District in 2022. We started with a unique and tasteful house blend. To stay diverse we alter our selection regularly.
We use only high-quality beans, single origin with a cupping score of at least 85. And working directly with the best coffee farmers in the world.
When the coffee shows up at our roastery, we run trials on those coffees and rely on those old profiles, but it eventually means asking, what do we get out of the drying phase, how do we achieve a peak rate of rise, where do we want to hit first crack, and how much development do we want on this? The desire of the roaster is to maximize all the things we find positive, and minimize all the things we find negative, during the trial phase.
As a certified roaster, we’ve sharpened our definitions of quality. We use key indicators, including sweetness, acidity, and clarity, to judge a coffee’s level of quality and potential for the customer. If those aspects aren’t balanced, it’s game over.
Coffee is a composition of flavors that interact.
