Coffee is where S&D got its start. And we believe we roast coffee better than anyone. From our decades-old relationship with growers around the world, to our innovative state-of-the-art computer-controlled roasting facility, we are experts in producing scalable quantities of quality coffee, from small batches (one bag of beans) to full-scale commercial runs, day after day after day.
Our receiving area holds thousands of bags, and we process tens of thousands of pounds of coffee every day. All of our coffee shipments are “cupped” (tasted) by experts a minimum of five times between receiving green coffee and the shipment of final product to you. Our commodities management team includes experienced veterans complemented by professionals distinguished by their diverse backgrounds. We have recently added a former cocoa bean buyer, for instance, and a current shareholder in a family farm in Nicaragua. Twice daily, all origin and blends are roasted, ground and cupped by a group of experts, guaranteeing the best possible product for you and your customers.
Our entire commercial coffee roasting process is electronically controlled, monitored in a state-of-the-art control room on a bank of LCD screens, allowing us to precisely monitor our range of roasting equipment. We can combine several different origin beans in a single blend in customized ratios, to match a specific taste profile. And our computer controls help us match that profile consistently, even months later.
S&D’s process and experience means better yield and hyper-consistent blends that are replicated without fail. We roast a single batch of a specific blend to a single taste profile – and guarantee it. No one else offers S&D’s combination of consistency and customization.
Coffee has been used for centuries as a delicious, pick-me-up beverage. And recent studies indicate that coffee may also be a good source of antioxidants, which may boost immunity and overall health.
