Valentine is specialty coffee roasted in small batches by people who care. The “specialty” part means we only choose to roast top-tier, rigorously-graded, traceable coffees. Small batches ensure our full attention to each and every roast, and we take care to respect the effort of every person involved in bringing us these coffees from their far-flung farms.
Ensuring a quality cup in hand is the highest expression of these ideals. We are committed to delivering that quality cup through proper training, education, and service. Our team of skilled baristas and service technicians are ready, willing, and able to provide your staff with the attention and tools required to deliver the best possible cup of coffee to your esteemed guests.
It doesn’t end there
Valentine sources coffee from a dozen specific geographical regions from 4 continents around the globe. The effects of soil, weather, altitude, and agricultural practices result in variation of bean density, water retention, and chemical composition. Moreover, the methods of processing, drying, and sorting each render coffee unique to its specific home, its source, or “origin.”
Upon arrival, every crop of coffee must be evaluated anew for its unique merits. Should a coffee pass the rigorous testing and tasting and re-tasting to be selected as among the best of what is available, we begin a “conversation” with the coffee to discover a roasting recipe, or profile. Utilizing the application of heat and air flow over time we endeavor to best manipulate the thousands of flavor compounds in a coffee to maximize deliciousness and integrity to origin. Once the profile is written and the coffee released, we maintain a quality control system of subsequent tasting to monitor and maintain that deliciousness and revise the recipe as needed as the coffee’s expression evolves over time.
