Here at UCR, we're always trying new beans, from new regions, playing with how we roast it, different brew methods, and so on. When you have as much caffeine as we do, it's hard to hold still! We're always moving on to the next thing. In early 2019, we launched our Roaster's Select series. These beans are special ordered, roasted, cupped, the roast is tweaked, then cupped again... we do it until we get it right.
When we come out with a new bean in our line, it's exactly what we want. The coffee works its way though our company, opinions are heard, and eventually one is "selected" (pun intended.)
Our roaster gets to work on roasting hundreds of pounds beans, so that we can bring it to you, our customers.
