Small Business Profile: Portland Roasting Coffee
Tuesday, August 18, 2015
These philanthropic endeavors are sustained by their scrupulous efforts to roast the best coffee that can be produced. The raw coffee bean is fairly innocuous in flavor but contains great potential for its robust characteristics that are expressed through the roasting process. The roaster determines the ideal coffee profile for each batch allowing the bean to showcase its natural characteristics from light floral and fruit notes to fuller-body earthy qualities.
