    Which Has More Caffeine: Light or Dark Roast Coffee?  
Bag of roasted beans    
  April 6, 2011  
  Which coffee has more caffeine? Here’s the abbreviated answer: It depends. 

Let’s dispel the most common myth right off the bat: A dark-roast bean contains more caffeine than a light-roast bean. Not true. Actually, the caffeine content in both is virtually the same. Popular opinion has always held that the darker the roast level, the lower a bean’s caffeine content.

    Half Caff : A Flavorful Alternative to Decaf  
Half Caff Coffee    
  October 22, 2010  
  Decaf drinkers tend to be on a perpetual quest for a more flavorful cup of coffee. And for good reason. Regardless of the method used, decaffeination results in a significant loss of flavor, aroma, and acidity. Despite advanced technology, researchers have yet to find a way to remove caffeine from a fragile coffee bean without compromising much of its flavor in the process. To balance a preference for less caffeine with the desire for increased flavor, many decaf drinkers view "half caff" coffee as a viable alternative.

          As the weather begins to cool down, it's time to turn up the heat in your coffee cup.

Unless you frequent espresso bars, though, it's easy to become intimidated by the range of choices on the menu board.

        Nutrition Facts of Coffee   The Skinny on Coffee: Calories and Nutrition    
          July 3, 2010      
If you're among the millions of Americans determined to cut back on calories and to focus increased attention on the nutritional value of foods, you might want to include coffee on your short list of non-fat, low-calorie beverages. From a nutritional standpoint, brewed coffee has virtually no fats, no carbohydrates, no cholesterol, and trace amounts of sodium (primarily a byproduct of the water used to brew the coffee and not the coffee itself). Brewed coffee also contains few calories. If a food label were required for coffeewhich it is notit would resemble the image to the left.

As to coffee's dietary advantages, let us offer a case in point. When one of our customers began a diet and exercise program last year, she feared that her love of chocolate would limit her ability to reach her desired weight goal. She had reason to worry since her office was located next door to a gourmet chocolate shop!  So, she relied on our own chocolate flavored...
        A post-roast coffee blend.   An Ode to Coffee Blends      
January 11, 2010
          For those of us in the specialty coffee roasting business, our offerings represent a balance between single-origin coffees and the proprietary blends we create. A single origin is an unblended coffee from one specific growing region, e.g., Costa Rica or Sumatra. Consumers gravitate to these coffees to experience their varietal character— known as terroir—loosely translated as a "taste of place" in the cup.

  New Crop Coffees: A Bounty of Fruit Flavor    
          October 26, 2009
          The fall harvest season here in northeastern Ohio coincides with the arrival of many of our new crop Central American coffees harvested last January to March. Following harvest, these coffees were defruited, dried, hulled, sorted, packaged, shipped to the port of New Orleans, and delivered to us.
