Blend Story

Giant Steps

Named for John Coltrane’s groundbreaking album Giant Steps, this coffee is not unlike the jazz visionary's signature "sheets of sound:” Made from organic coffees, it’s downright viscous in the cup. We push the development on the roasting drum until the sweetness and body peak without ever letting any off flavors, like burnt notes, come through.

Roasting Profile

Small Batch Coffee, Fresh-Roasted Daily to Order

We employ the Japanese notion of Kaizen in our roasting practice. This idea of “good change” or “continuous improvement” drives our team to keep daily records of their tastings, always chasing better, more delicious, more consistent coffees.

We roast small batches on Loring machines around the world, so our coffee tastes not only luminous, but reliably consistent, from Tokyo to New York.
