Western Canada’s favourite home-brewed coffeehouse is starting the new year with a spate of new coffee offerings roasted in-house at Artigiano Roasting Co.
Ranging from floral aromas with hints of cherry and apple to the more tropical with touches of pineapple and plum, Caffè Artigiano is premiering three new coffees to titillate the discriminating palates of its customers: Rwanda Kigeyo, Sulawesi Toarco Tana Toraja and Kenya Ruarai.
All three are available by the 12 ounce bag, ranging in price from $16 to $22 for whole-bean varieties, and as brewed cups served in house by award-winning baristas at Artigiano locations. Coffee can also be purchased online at www.caffeartigiano.com/
In addition to its newly debuted brews, Caffè Artigiano has also served up yet another way to ensure the quality of its ingredients: in-house coffee roasting via Artigiano Roasting Co.
To maintain Artigiano’s focus on creating the perfect cup of coffee, the chain opened a new roasting facility in Burnaby, B.C., and began roasting its own beans in the fall of 2012. Coffees are sourced globally through relationships with the best importers and producers the world of coffee has to offer.
“The decision to roast our coffees ourselves means we can keep a close eye on the quality,” says Michael Ratcliffe, Head Roaster for Artigiano Roasting Co., whose expertise is in refining and perfecting specialty coffees. “Our philosophy on roasting stems from the belief that each of our coffees has unique characteristics that are revealed through roasting. Every batch is methodically profiled, roasted, and tested to ensure we showcase these natural qualities.”
