Organic Coffee, Natural & Artificial Flavors.
An indulgent smooth coffee with notes of creamy toasted hazelnuts, sweet vanilla, and a delectable aroma, it is a full-bodied rich, and complex irresistible treat. Our flavored coffees are created by combining the finest quality fair trade coffee, roasted lightly to provide a solid base with the finest flavorings we can source. We taste test our flavored coffee during development at various levels of flavor, to make each one as perfect as we can. We know you will love them, guaranteed!
Sourcing The Finest Beans
Coffee is traditionally grown 1,500 miles north and south of the equator between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. This is known as the “Coffee Belt” or the “Bean Belt” and that is where Barrie House sources the finest, Fair Trade Organic coffee beans from around the world. Everything from the chemistry of the soil, the weather, the amount of rainfall and sunshine, and even the precise altitude at which the coffee grows can affect the taste of the final product. Like wine that can come from different varieties of grapes, coffee can come from different varieties of trees and cherries. Coffee that is grown higher and drier will taste more acidic while coffee grown lower, and wetter will be more earthy.
How Our Coffee is Roasted
Because coffee can differ by variety, elevation, and processing, all coffee cannot be roasted the same. Because of this, the roast is the most important part of producing a really good coffee. Like all great family secrets, the art of roasting our specialty coffee has been passed down from one generation to the next. For over 80 years, we have carefully selected, blended, roasted, and packed what we believe is the world’s finest coffee. We roast our premium coffee beans in vintage roasters with a novel drum design. This allows for better airflow and reduces the risk of over-roasting, which can cause a burnt flavor. Different compounds are developed during this roasting process at different times. By controlling the chemical reactions taking place in the bean during the roast, we can change or determine the flavors in the final cup!
Light Roasts – Our Light Roast is light in color (as the name would suggest) and has no oil present on the beans. A light roast will showcase the distinctive qualities of the bean’s origin and can develop a broad range of flavors and aromas.
Blending – Prior to roasting, our roast masters carefully blend the roasted beans to achieve the desired flavor profile. Once locked in, we duplicate that flavor profile for each of our Signature flavor blends perfectly, every time.
