You bet it is!
And not just because it tastes special.
Specialty Coffee is actually special because it has been graded as special.
The green beans themselves are graded using a scale developed by the Specialty Coffee Associations (SCA). Beans that have been graded over 80 points on a 100 point scale by the SCA are considered Specialty Coffee. The beans are graded both based on a visual analysis as well as a cupping (or tasting) analysis.
The SCA not only has developed a set of green coffee standards, but also standards for cupping (or tasting), water, and brewing coffee.
Now you know that when we tell you Peak City Coffee is Specialty Coffee, you know it’s special in more ways than one!
