Fresh Tastes Better
Coffee loses its great flavor in about a month. After that month, coffee can taste pretty stale. We strive to keep our inventory freshly roasted within days and ship directly to you. We recommend using up your beans within 4-6 weeks.
Our coffee only has the most natural flavor from coffee cherries that are tree-ripened, expertly processed, shipped carefully, and then expertly roasted.
Small Batch Roaster
We roast for flavor. That's why we have a double-walled drum roaster made in Germany. This roaster will create a perfect temperature profile in the right hands. Trust us for the perfect coffee flavor.
Why Wild Calf
Our roots are from farms and ranches in Montana and North Dakota. From a young age, we have witnessed the memorable moment of a newborn calf, and how hopeful it makes the future, for many reasons. Watching a young calf with its playful spirit as it jumps around after only a few hours is unbelievable. To many of us, they all look the same, but the baby and the mother know each other.
Our journey with coffee and flavor began in Seattle, where we lived for 11 years. During that time, we went from thinking coffee was undrinkable to becoming fanatics about it. After we visited some of the best coffee shops in the world in Seattle (at the time), we grew to love coffee.
In Seattle, we learned that coffee will taste wildly different depending on who is making it, who is roasting it, where the coffee cherry grew on the tree, how the grower picks the coffee, and finally, how the processor finalizes the coffee flavor through the fermentation, drying process, and sorting.
As growers and producers expand their knowledge of the beans and classify and sort them in ever specific ways, collectively, we can separate the best from the undrinkable.
At Wild Calf, we hope you find all of our coffees to be easy drinking. In the near future, we will be developing other Wild beverages.
The Mystery of Specialty Coffee
You may hear a lot of strange terms describing coffee, including non-coffee flavors and "notes", like blueberry or caramel. If you notice, you can taste this in our coffee as well, as we test our processes rigorously to achieve the most flavorful roast.
Coffee doesn't have to be a mystery. There are many experts in this field, and they don't always agree. We can share what we know, and even others' theories, to encourage your love of coffee. We can even teach you how to pour your own simple Latte Art.
