Specialty coffees represent a small percentage of world coffee production. Regardless of the score they are already unique
Boardwalk Coffee is a place for people who appreciate a special cup of coffee.
We celebrate the producers and farmers who put their heart and sweat into the craft.
We are continuously trying to build meaningful connections at the origin.
Boardwalk Coffee Roasters mission is to create a transparent and ethical coffee business.
We educate our customers about the farmers craft, by telling the story behind the bean.
Our coffee roastery is based in the seaside town of Youghal in County Cork. We choose quality, high-end green beans from reliable suppliers who source from sustainable coffee farms from all over the world.
HOW DO WE CHOOSE THE COFFEE?
First of all we have to understand what kind of product we want to create and what target we want to reach. We are specialty coffee roasters, so we always choose coffee beans with a score of at least 80 points and usually 83 points or more. Learn more about grading coffee “Know about coffee” – “tasting coffee”- “What is a specialty coffee?”
Our coffee selection process is rigorous and involves selecting possible candidates that our Head Roaster thinks will be interesting and unique. We collect multiple samples which will be checked to ensure that there is not many green coffee defects and that those defects are not affecting the cup experience. After that, we will roast our samples on a Besca bee (sample roaster). Once roasted, all beans are cupped and evaluated to check their profile in our palate. We only choose the beans that best suit the taste we want to propose to our customers. Learn More About Our Roastery
