Small lots roasted in small batches
Micro lots can be sourced from a single farm, a small holder collective or a special processing. Often these lots are purchased directly from the farm, other times at auction. A micro lot can be as small as one bag of coffee, and is generally in the range of 10 to 40 60 kilo bags.
Home roasters and small retail roasters have had access to these for years and until recently, they have only been available to small groups of “in the know” customers. Word got out. As demand for truly exceptional coffees grew, the mega roasters began competing for these lots and offering them in boutique stores or as limited offerings. More consumers have become aware of their choices, but it’s still corporate coffee.
Cafe’ Typica sources one bag at a time, and when it’s gone, it’s gone. This keeps our coffee fresh and allows us to create a new favorite for you on a regular basis.
