Our inaugural roast shipped out the door today. A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who is tasting Pangeo Coffee!

Have your ever seen coffee being roasted? In the Ethiopian villages that we help, the women roast it by hand in a small pan over hot coals or an electric burner. They like to roast it VERY dark.

But around the world, people are now learning that coffee is as subtle and varied as wine. The best roasters now roast it JUST to the point where each coffee’s unique notes and flavors are most superbly released. That’s how we roast it for you.

Check out this video where I take you behind the scenes while Pangeo Coffee is roasted by our acclaimed roaster here in Denver:
