How Do Coffee Shops Make Their Coffee?

At Cherry Blend Coffee Roasters, we understand how important it is to understand the journey of a coffee bean from harvesting to reaching your cup. At our family-owned coffee roastery in Canton, Ohio, we take pride in knowing each step of the process. In this blog, we will be exploring the journey of a coffee bean from farm to cup.

Sourcing the Finest Beans:

Our commitment to quality begins with sourcing the finest coffee beans from around the world. Through a partnership with the Balzac Brothers, we select ethically grown beans that meet our strick standards. From the high altitudes of Colombia to the lush plantations of Ethiopia, each region brings it’s own unique flavors and characteristics.

Meticulous Bean Selection:

Once the beans arrive at our roastery, our staff meticulously inspect the raw beans to ensure we’re only selecting the best means for roasting. We look for variables such size, density, and color. Only the best beans make it into our roasting process. This careful screening process guarantees a consistent and superior flavor profile before we begin roasting.

The Art of Roasting:

Roasting is where much of the true magic happens. Our skilled roasters utilize a Diedrich coffee roaster to transform the raw beans into aromatic fully roasted beans ready to be made into coffee. We are careful to control temperature, time, and airflow to bring out the unique characteristics and desired roast levels of each bean. The perfect roasting process took a long time to learn and is a balance of science and art. We make precise adjustments to achieve the perfect flavor and aroma every time.

Post-Roasting Care:

Once the beans have been roasted, we allow them to go through a process known as “degassing” which is a crucial step allowing the coffee to settle. Essentially the goal is to release excess carbon dioxide and ensuring a smoother, more balanced taste.

Freshly Brewed Delight:

Finally, the transformed beans are ready to be bagged and sold! We offer both whole bean and ground coffee. Whether it’s a pour-over, espresso, or French Press, our beans are a delightful and satisfying experience for all coffee lovers.

At Cherry Blend’s Canton, Ohio roastery, the journey from bean to cup is a labor of love. With a meticulous approach to sourcing, selecting, and roasting, we strive to deliver an exceptional coffee experience to our customers. Each sip you take represents the dedication of our family-owned business to bringing you the finest coffee, highlighting the distinct flavors and qualities that make our brews truly special.
