Rogue Wave Coffee - Reserved Lot Mini Pack
Some of the most limited coffee in the world can be found in our roast-to-order menu. In order to compensate for the very high cost of green coffee, we think that roasting smaller amounts to order will be of interest to many in the coffee community.
Each pack contains 40-45g of coffee. These coffees are roasted on our Ikawa micro-roaster. We roast 50g of green coffee for each order and hand sort the beans to remove any roast defects. This results in a varying amount of coffee in each bag.
Brewing Tips: Since these are roasted on a small roaster, we recommend brewing this coffee within 4 weeks of the roast date. Try grinding a little bit finer than usual, and tighten up your usual ratio. For example, if you generally do 1:16, try 1:15 as your starting point.
