What makes a coffee special?

There are many ways to produce specialty coffee. Many times, the coffee from the farm is not even tasted, and the quality of the coffee being processed is not recognized. Making a coffee drinkable or good is usually quite easy. Many times, details like machinery cleanliness, harvesting, etc., play a crucial role. However, designing processes that generate distinctive flavors in the cup requires a significant amount of knowledge and effort.

We have been working for six years processing coffees, designing benefit protocols, and have received several awards for our coffees. We can teach you how to improve your coffee starting now and in the medium term, produce incredible coffees that will captivate your customers.


  1. Having extensive knowledge in coffee varieties, nutrition, and processing.
  2. Understanding the market to identify the demand.
  1. Washed. The coffee is harvested, pulped, fermented, and washed before drying.
  2. Honey. The coffee is harvested, pulped, fermented, and dried without washing (or with only a light rinse).
  3. Natural. The coffee is harvested, fermented, and dried.

The idea of specialty coffee is to work in partnership with customers. Prices are negotiated, and sometimes in auctions, prices can reach over a thousand dollars per pound of coffee. In general, prices are set at this level, but agreements are made with customers with the idea of creating a win-win situation between the producer and the roaster.

Extended fermentations can help improve the sensory profile of your coffee, but they also always carry a high risk of damaging it. Not all coffees with fermentation times of a hundred hours or more result in expensive coffees. If you don’t have customers yet, you may potentially lose money because common marketers may not value experimental processing methods. On the contrary, they sometimes pay low prices for coffees dried in cherry or with mucilage.

  1. There are no bad coffees, only poorly processed coffees. Just like planting the Geisha variety, which is much more fragile as a plant and more susceptible to diseases, it doesn’t guarantee that the best cup of coffee will always be obtained. But with proper nutrition and good processing practices, it becomes easier to achieve outstanding cups of coffee.

Is it possible to be self-taught to become a specialty coffee producer?

Nothing is impossible. Everyone can teach themselves everything, but keep in mind that you can:

Other advantages of producing specialty coffee

Specialty coffee is a growing market worldwide. By roasting coffee, green coffee is transformed into one of the most important and consumed beverages in the world. Due to the pandemic, many people began to take home coffee preparation seriously and, instead of spending money on parties, they invested in better coffee and in equipment to make their own coffee.
This mentality requires higher quality coffee roasters; customers are desiring higher quality specialty coffee.

When you produce specialty coffee you stop producing only one coffee. You will be able to offer your customers various types of benefits such as washed, honeys and natural, having different cup profiles. You will even be able to offer competition coffees, insignia processes and respond to special market needs.
