What is specialty coffee?

Coffee is defined into two grades, commercial or specialty grade.

Specialty coffee is typically grown in three continents: South and Central Americas, Asia, and Africa.

The world’s most expensive specialty coffee is Panama Geisha coffee, which has been sold for over US$800 per pound.

Commercial coffee usually roasted, ground, packed in various forms of packaging, sachets ready for sale off-the-shelf display in convenience stores, supermart, hypermart. This in itself offers a very limited selection of blend and roast.

Specialty coffee is unground whole beans in one-kilo bags or larger. You can normally purchase varieties of beans from the stores or factories where they roast the beans.

You get to preserve the freshness and flavor better if you store them properly, and your beans are freshly ground prior to your brewing.

Specialty coffees offer more opportunities for the preferred creation of your pleasure.
