Commitment to Quality
Our roasting process celebrates the fig from tree to brew. Like a good coffee or wine, there are four categories to tasting.
AromaBelieve it or not, we taste first with our nose. The tongue only senses sweet, salty, sour and bitter. Our noses sense thousands of smells. So, take a deep whiff before you taste to smell the earthiness of the fig with its notes of the Mediterranean and rich nuttiness.
AcidityUnlike traditional coffee, Figgee and mellow mix have low acidity with a clean finish and no bitterness.
BodyThis is the thickness of the drink and depends heavily on the brew process and the addition of milk or cream. Unlike an espresso that can coat and be thick, FigBrew is light and smooth.
FlavorLike beauty is to the eye of the beholder, so too is flavor. We have heard our brews described in many ways including nutty, earthy, rich, malty and caramel notes. We agree with them all! To us, the prefect cup is the taste of wellness.
FigBrew figs are sourced from a family-owned business for 35 years with BRC, IFS, Organic, and FDA certification. The sun-drenched Mediteranean saw the original cultivation of figs and that has developed into a sustainable practice in close symbiosis with nature and the environment. FigBrew is committed to partnering only with those farms that give back to the community and world.
Our farm has over 170 acres with trees ranging from 5 to 40 years age. The family farm is 100 years old and spans four generations. We think the figs produced on this farm are some of the best in the world!
FigBrew coffees are sourced from Central American Highland countries yielding a unique smooth flavor and bright crisp aroma with a long tradition. For centuries, coffee trees were picked by local farmers in small depressed communities looking to make a better life for their families. The coffee beans used in FigBrew products are a mix selected from small farms based on taste and consistency.
While the goal of the farm is the make the highest quality coffee, FigBrew’s passion is to empower workers through employment.
