Farm to Cup
That coffee you're drinking wasn't born in a laboratory. It grew out of the earth, on a tree, on a farm thousands of miles away along the equator, somewhere between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. The coffee tree grew for three years before producing cherries, and even then only produced 1kg - 5kg of fruit in a season. Those coffee cherries were picked when ripe and processed in the local community to remove the outer pulp, then washed, sorted and dried out in the sun. After drying, the resulting parchment coffee was collected, packed and shipped to a mill where the dry parchment skin was removed, finally exposing the recognizable green coffee bean inside.
It was this green coffee bean which was sorted by machines, sorted by hand, sampled for quality and shipped around the world to be roasted to perfection by your favorite specialty coffee roaster, Sträva Craft Coffee!
Roasting & Brewing
Before you can enjoy that great cup of coffee, espresso shot or beverage, the green coffee beans must be roasted. And while roasting may sound simple, it's actually a delicate balance of art and science. Your roaster must proceed to cook the bean while seeking to realize their desired flavor characteristics: a blend of aroma, acidity, body and flavor.
Have you learned enough? Okay... okay... Go ahead and enjoy that delicious cup of Sträva Craft Coffee now!

Between the farm and your cup, coffee can bring economic opportunity and hope to people of all walks of life. From the local washing stations that provide employment for rural communities to the urban mills which process, sort and prepare beans for export, coffee has the potential to positively impact millions of lives.
