Great quality beans, consistent size, hardly any quakers. No very fruity but sweet and almost caramelly to me. A very good coffee for the price. Only complaint is packaging on the 5lb order. It was vacuum packaged very well however I wish it was split into two 2.5lb vacuum sealed bags like the light roast.
Why It's Awesome
Wild Coffee beans are the cleanest, most Wild bean we could find out of dozens of coffees we tested. These select Premium Grade "1" beans are single-origin, organic and sourced from small farms and crops.
Wild Coffee beans are fresh roasted in small batches 2-4 times a month. The fresh roasted smell is intoxicating.
How To Brew
Drip: 2 tbsp medium grind coffee to 8 ounces of 195-205 degree water.
Pour Over: 28 grams of coarse ground coffee to 310 grams of 200 degree water.
Chemex: 6 tbsp of coarse ground coffee to 700 grams of water.
Always Fair Trade | Always Organic
Fair Trade certified coffee ensures the origin of a product. Farmers that grow Fair Trade coffee receive a fair price, and their local community benefits as well.
Non-organic coffees contain residues from chemical fertilizers and pesticides. In some cases, these enter the middle of the bean and can even remain trapped inside throughout the roasting process. Try a cup of Wild Coffee and you can literally feel the difference!
Fair Trade Is A Good Decision
Choosing products that are Fair Trade Certified means you're making a choice to support responsible companies, empower farmers and their workers, along with protecting the environment.
The Organic Difference
No chemicals are used in Wild Coffee production, processing and packaging. This means it doesn't pollute the environment. There is also no risk of smaller animals like beautiful birds or squirrels, being poisoned and killed due to these toxic chemicals. Therefore, organic Wild Coffees help a lot to preserve the environment and its healthy cycles.
Did You Know?
Back in 2001, Brazil produced a postal stamp that smelled like coffee? It was created to promote their coffee and the stamp's smell was said to last up to 5 years.
The most widely used commodity in the world is oil, coffee is next in line.
Wild Coffee FAQ's
Keep it stored away from light and heat in an air tight container. Don't refrigerate your beans and only freeze your beans if you don't plan on using them soon. Then make sure you triple wrap them.
The darker the roast, the more you will see the shiny coffee oils on the exterior of the beans. This is a sign of freshness as most mass-produced coffee, because it is stale, does not have these yummy coffee oils still on the beans because they have dried out. The more you roast a coffee bean, the more you draw out the coffee oils that are inside the bean. Lighter roasts still have the oils inside the beans, which makes them look "dry," while the darker roasts will shimmer with wonderful shiny coffee oils on their exterior.
We don't... in a lab, that is. Our beans are fresh roasted locally in Austin, Texas. They are Organic, Fair trade and single-origin. They are also mostly wet processed (Sidamo is dry process on raised beds). In our extensive human tests, mold or toxins have never been an issue with our beans. Even when we've tested consuming beans that were stored for 2 months in the cabinet!
Yea... we've struggled with this one. Our roaster has started roasting Peru Light closer to a medium because we have found that it just tastes so much better and brings out so much more of the delicious characteristics of the Peru bean.
We are actually on the hunt to find a really great bean to light roast. Until then, Peru Light is more like "Peru Light Medium."
All Wild Coffee and Wild Cold Brew products are fresh roasted each Monday morning. We pick them up from the roaster Wednesdays (this gives the coffee a day to "rest" as it needs to) and send out packages that afternoon and Thursday!
Yes, but not coffee products. Because freshness is an issue, we don't ship Wild Coffee or Wild Cold Brew outside of the US.
