Great coffee is no accident; it’s a cumulative effort between many dedicated workers from farm to café. Our task as a roaster is framed by the work done before the coffee reaches us. At Pig Iron, we collaborate with farmers, sourcers, and importers that are as quality-focused as we are to bring in the most complex and ultimately delicious coffees we can find. Using high-quality green coffee allows us to roast with a light touch, bringing out the inherent sweetness and complexity of the coffee itself. Not only does roasting this way make the coffee taste best, it also enables us to tell each individual coffee’s story by allowing coffee drinkers to experience flavours accountable to the coffee’s terroir, cultivation, and processing.
