Common Questions About Specialty Coffee:
#1 What's the difference between Arabica and Robusta beans?
Arabica beans are known for their sweet, soft taste with hints of sugar, fruit, and berries. Their acidity is higher, giving it a wine-like taste. Robusta beans, on the other hand, have a stronger, harsher taste, often likened to nuts or chocolate. At Ember Coffee Co., we specialize in Arabica due to its rich and diverse flavor profile, ensuring a high-quality cup every time.
#2 How does the roast affect the flavor?
Roasting plays a pivotal role in a coffee's flavor profile. Light roasts retain most of the coffee's original flavor, which could be floral, fruity, or tea-like. Medium roasts offer a balanced flavor, acidity, and aroma, while dark roasts are bold, smoky, and may have a slight bitterness. Our air roasting technique ensures the beans are roasted uniformly, preserving their unique characteristics.
#3 Why is water quality essential?
Water constitutes 98% of your coffee cup. Using clean, fresh, and pure water is paramount to extracting the true essence of specialty coffee beans. If your local water doesn't meet the mark, consider using filtered or bottled water for brewing. At our Big Lake, Minnesota location, we always prioritize water quality to ensure the best brew.

Why Choose Ember Coffee's Air Roasted Beans?
Air roasting is not just a process; it's an art form. Unlike traditional methods where beans can be scorched on hot surfaces, air roasted beans levitate on a bed of hot air. This results in an evenly roasted bean and a cleaner, brighter flavor. Our commitment to this technique showcases our dedication to excellence, reinforcing why we're celebrated as "Minnesota's Best."
