PROCESSING COFFEE


In the coffee trade, we speak of a Dry Process and a Washed Process in referring to how the quality of the fruit is judged and the shipments of beans readied for export. While neither the Dry nor the Washed Process is necessarily superior, we at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®, have always been partial to the Washed Process. Why? Simple. It's all about taste. Washed coffees tend to have brighter flavors and a cleaner finish.

Our Coffees Truly Come From the Top of the Heap

From the discerning eye of the Picker, looking for the perfectly ripened fruit, to the final approval of an inspector, sorting the good beans from the bad, our coffees go through a rigorous screening process. When it's all said and done, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®, selects from the top 1% of the world's best coffees. Our blends are hand-selected, renowned for their consistency of quality, and hail from the world's elite coffee growing regions.
