Selection of Raw Coffee Beans
Before being processed in the factory, all incoming coffee beans have gone through a rigorous and layered selection process. It starts from the picking process carried out in plantations where pickers choose matured beans. The selection results are then followed by passing it through field workers for additional quality control, and when it arrives at the factory, it is rechecked again by experts, assessing the quality and content of the water. Besides the selection of quality, we also conduct the selection process for male coffee beans for peaberry coffee products.
The production process (also called as “roasting”) is carefully conducted and controlled by an expert who has an experience of over 10 years. The involvement of this “master roaster” is very important, because in order to get a consistent and stable coffee quality, sometimes it is necessary to have it manually handled according to each coffee’s characteristics.
In addition to internal quality control, 70°F Koffie also ensures the quality of the products by hiring the services of a Q Grader who routinely checks the quality of coffee. A Q Grader is a coffee taster, as well as a competent appraiser certified by the Coffee Quality Institute (CQI). With their involvement, our products are guaranteed to be always in its best quality.
