NIGHT SKY COFFEE

  • ARE YOUR COFFEES FAIR TRADE, ORGANIC CERTIFIED?
    Typically, we don't actively highlight our coffee as certified organic or fair trade. Although we occasionally acquire certified organic coffee, we avoid promoting it extensively due to the significant costs associated with certifications for both us as roasters and the coffee growers we support. Nevertheless, it's worth emphasizing that we consistently exceed the Fair Trade minimum price for all our coffees and actively support the Genuine Origin Volcafe Way.
  • HOW SHOULD I BREW MY COFFEE?
    The short answer to the question of how to brew your coffee is simple: any way you like! However, we recommend embarking on a journey of experimentation with various brewing methods to discover your personal favorite. At our roastery, we often opt for a pour-over method, maintaining a water-to-coffee ratio of 16:1 and a brewing temperature of approximately 203 degrees Fahrenheit. This approach allows us to extract the nuanced flavors and qualities inherent in each coffee bean, providing a delightful and customized coffee experience. For some recommended brewing methods please visit our Brew Guide.
  • DO YOU ROAST YOUR COFFEE DARK OR LIGHT?
    At Night Sky Coffee, although we use labels like 'light,' 'medium,' and 'dark' for our beans, we make an effort to steer clear of categorizing our roast profiles in this manner. These terms often focus on surface color and fall short in encapsulating the intricate nuances of flavor development. Our coffee roasting approach is straightforward: we roast to achieve the optimal flavor profile for each bean. Our goal is to accentuate the distinct characteristics of the coffee, which may stem from factors such as the region, elevation, farming practices, and even the processing method employed by the producers. We generally lean towards the 'medium' range for our roasts, as this is where we've discovered a harmonious balance between sweetness, acidity, and body.
